You get to see unique city sights from the water before being whisked away in an air-conditioned van to visit some of Brisbane’s best small breweries.

Check out the full itinerary:

These neighbouring breweries, situated in the Newstead and Teneriffe areas of Brisbane, are staples in the Queensland craft beer repertoire and an ideal place to start your tour. Sample their core ranges – plus maybe a few seasonal brews if the timing is right.

We will visit both of these Queensland brewing icons, learning about the history of each and discovering differences of flavour across their ranges.

Guests have the chance to check out one of Brisbane’s newest breweries, where you will receive a warm welcome and cold beers. Their taps are always changing, serving anything from an IPA to a sour, so come along to see what’s on today!

They’re not full-pro, they’re Semi-Pro, and they offer a solid range of awesome beer to suit everyone’s tastes. Bearded men wear pink at Semi-Pro, and it’s easy to get distracted by the on-site video games. Suffice it to say, this crew has created a welcoming space amongst the brewing tanks, with food trucks on site and great music in the background.

Our third and final venue may be one listed above, or we may switch it up and visit Archer Brewery, Brisbane Brewing Co., All Inn Brewing Co. or one of the other outstanding craft breweries in the area!

Included in the price: 90-minute cruise (12:30-2:00pm) with River City Cruises, transportation in our private, air-conditioned van, guided brewery tour with explanation of the brewing process, all beer samples at the breweries we visit, beer education and history, snacks, and witty commentary (well, we think it is). Please note lunch is not included in this tour.

Please note: itinerary subject to change based on traffic, closures, new openings, events or spur-of-the-moment decisions, however we will ensure you receive everything listed above.

Please note that the 90-MINUTE RIVER CITY CRUISE starts at 12:30pm; time listed above is when the BREWERY TOUR portion of the tour begins. Guest MUST select 2:30pm Brewery Tour option from the drop-down above.
