Project Description

Enjoying beers at Bine

Coldie on the Goldie

Queensland’s Gold Coast isn’t all surf and sand, with award-winning breweries appearing faster than the next wave! This tour ducks into residential neighbourhoods, skirts the sea, and shows that there’s more to the coast than meets the eye.

Spend the day in air-conditioned comfort during our Gold Coast beer tour. Visit one of the original and most iconic Gold Coast breweries and receive a guided tour, aim for the stars in hopes of meeting a pro surfer, play some basketball or just watch the world pass by as we fill the day with unheard stories and witty commentary. See what all the fuss is about at the Gold Coast’s highly-acclaimed craft breweries.

Each tour visits three of the four Gold Coast breweries.

If you aren’t sure you have the time to spend all day with us, or maybe already have lunch plans, check out the original half-day Gold Coast brewery tour, Quickie on the Coast – still plenty of indie brews to be enjoyed.

Check out the full itinerary:

Learning about beer can be hungry work, so before we start the day we want to make sure you have a solid lining on your stomach! Lunch comes early in the day, either our first or second stop, at either Lost Palms Brewing (Fridays) or Bine (weekends), along with a tasting paddle, while enjoying some of the Gold Coast’s best beer selections. Here we will take you through the main ingredients of beer and gain a basic beer history before moving on.

One of the smallest professional brewing setups in SE Queensland, these two Belgians are bringing a slice of Europe to the Gold Coast! Running a small system from their garage, Jimmy and Annelies create mouth-watering Belgian brews, including a Witbier, Saison and Tripel. Depending on the tour, we may start or end the day here.

*Madocke is not open on Sundays

With fresh and funky Miami vibes, Lost Palms is all about embracing the Gold Coast lifestyle! Here we have the chance to kick back and relax, try some of their delicious cold brews, indulge in some Gold Coast sun and maybe even shoot some hoops. If head brewer Chris is around he can take us through the brewing process to get a better understanding of what makes your beer beer.

Kicking goals across Australia, Black Hops Brewing have built an intimate venue with a tasting room perfectly structured to sample their range of delicious beers. With 14 taps, there’s always something new and different – especially as part of their “recon series” – and some flavours may challenge your tastebuds. If they’re around, we will take the time to speak to the brewers, learn about the brewing process, and see how everything functions by getting up close and personal.

Queensland’s longest-running and largest brewery, the family-operated Burleigh Brewing, has been a pioneer in bringing craft beer to the masses. You may know them best for their Bighead Lager. Here you get to see where the magic happens as you sample their well-known beers and try some special releases – maybe even take some home with you! If we time it right, we may get to indulge in a tour of their brewery.

Whether we choose to overlook the stainless steel tanks or enjoy the sun on comfy outdoor cushions, Balter Brewing makes guests never want to leave! Their slogan, “With Enjoyment”, comes across in all aspects of their beers and venue – delicious, welcoming and a great place to end the tour. Witness beer production in the background as we sample their newly tapped brews and learn about what’s still to come.

At your request, we will drop you off at one of our partner pubs, where you can keep drinking delicious beer to your hearts’ content.

Where a location is indicated, we will pick up you outside the venue so please keep an eye out for our van – you can’t miss it!

Pick Ups:

  • Loose Moose (Oasis Centre, 75 Surf Parade, Broadbeach) is on the ground floor of the Oasis Centre in the heart of Broadbeach. Easy to reach by G:Link, the Loose Moose is near the taxi rank at the main entrance to the centre. *Due to construction work, we will be waiting across from the Oasis Centre/Sofitel Hotel near Moo-Moos Restaurant*
  • Helensvale Station is a central stop for anyone on the train coming from either direction. We’ll be waiting on the heavy rail side near where the taxis are so you can’t miss us.
  • Sandbar (52 Esplanade, Surfers Paradise) overlooks the lapping waves of Surfers Paradise. Start your day here with a delicious breakfast or sample beers from around the globe (mainly Australia, New Zealand and the US) by the bottle or on tap (but don’t get too far ahead of us!). A great way to start or end your day, Sandbar is one block north of Cavill Mall. (Feel free to grab a seat and a beer prior to our meeting at 12pm)

We are flexible with our drop-off locations within the city based on guests’ needs and requests.
