Project Description

Dash of Brisbane

Don’t have the entire day to sip beer? Want to fit something in before your afternoon flight? The other half give you half a day off? Come along on our half day Brisbane option and splash out on a Dash of Brisbane.

We visit some outstanding craft breweries and check out a favourite bar or two as well. This tour is ideal for those without a lot of time or people just beginning their foray into beer. Come and see what all the fuss is about and why Queensland craft beer is so hot it’s cool.

Plans changed and you have more time in the city than you originally thought? Escape the hustle and visit independent breweries you may not otherwise see on our Western Explorer or Southern Sessions brewery tours. Still want to stay within the city limits but feel like some lunch (on us)? Our Best of Brisbane is the best way to explore the Brisbane beer scene.

  • Tour operates on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
  • Pick up times: 9:45am & 2:20pm – The Gresham (CBD) / 10:00am & 2:30pm – Daily Planet Cafe (Fortitude Valley)

  • Tour lasts roughly 3.5-4 hours
  • Visit three breweries
  • Photo ID required; Must be 18+ to participate

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!

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:

  • The Gresham (308 Queen Street, Brisbane) is an historic pub in central Brisbane. From Central Station, exit toward Ann Street. Past the ANZAC Memorial and through Post Office Square, next to the NAB bank, you’ll find The Gresham tucked away. Alternatively you can exit toward Edward Street, head down the hill and turn left onto Queen Street. Walk about 1/2 block and The Gresham will be next to the NAB on your left. Please note The Gresham does not open until 4pm on Saturdays and is closed on Sundays; we will still pick up here and there are plenty of places in Post Office Square to get a coffee and/or breakfast.
  • Daily Planet Cafe (228 Wickham St, Fortitude Valley) is a very short wallk from the Fortitude Valley Station – come out, hang a left and turn right at the Elephant Hotel (Wickham St) and DPC is on your right. If you hit the Night Owl, you’ve gone too far. Daily Planet Cafe is a comic-book-inspired cafe that serves scenestr coffee and offers guests a 10% discount on their drink purchases when they show their tour confirmation for that day’s tour. Bonus!

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

Included in the price: 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, water & snacks, and witty commentary (well, we think it is).

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.

Not finding the tour you want on the date you need? Give us a call – we might have created a special tour for the day that we can get you on, or we may be sold out. But you’ll never know unless you ask. We’re always happy to help and check availability for you.
