Project Description

Brisbane Brewery Tour Hatchets and Hops

Hatchets and Hops Brewery Tour Combo

Discover your inner viking! Start the day with some lessons in axe-throwing and spend an hour honing your skills before cooling down with a few frothies.

After our time at MANIAX, we will stay in the area and visit craft breweries at some of Brisbane’s best inner-city venues with a tour of at least one brewery. We’ll chat with the people that produce this liquid gold and even enjoy some history with your beer education.

Please note this tour requires a minimum of 6 guests; if you are a smaller party and interested in including axe-throwing, please contact us directly and we will be happy to assist.

Not feeling like you need to bury the hatchet? Check out our other Brisbane brewery tour options, like our full-day Best of Brisbane tour or a cruisy half-day Dash of Brisbane. Either way, you’ll get to swig some samples with the best of ’em!

Check out the full itinerary:

Maniax axe throwing is about getting together with friends and doing something different. When you sink your first bullseye, you’ll be hooked.

With individual coaching and target practice, you’ll then play a tournament against your mates to see who wins bragging rights as the champion axe thrower. They might even buy you a beer of your choosing after your brewery tour and education!

After ace throwing, it’s time to quench your thirst with some tasty beers (and we’ll throw in a bit of brewing education) at Fonzie Abbott. Mainly known for their delicious, eye-opening coffee (roasted on site), their beers are quiet achievers – as is their Wishbone Spirits line! But we’re here for the beer, so we will sample four of their finest while here.

Situated just across from the Gabba, Easy Times brews a solid core range of everything you want to try, from a lager to a Hazy IPA. We’ll whet your whistle and educate you on the basics of beer.

Time for lunch after all that hard work axe-throwing! Our lunch venues rotate between Milton Common and Sea Legs Brewing, both of which offer a delicious selection of pizzas and burgers to fill even the hungriest warrior! Or we may visit the tuckshop at Happy Valley or even some fancy French-style pizzas at Fick Brewing Co. Lunch comes with a paddle of beers or a schooner, depending on how you’re feeling.

We finish the day at Green Beacon Brewing Co, an award-winning Queensland brewery and one of the most recognisable brands in the industry. With seasonal releases throughout the year and a delicious core range to suit any visitor, Green Beacon encompasses the community spirit brought back to Australia after worldly travels.

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 around Post Office Square to get a coffee and/or breakfast.
  • Prince Consort Hotel (230 Wickham St, Fortitude Valley) is a very short walk from the Fortitude Valley Station – come out, hang a left and turn right and there you are! Perfect for a morning cuppa before the tour.

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

Included in the price: 1-hour education and axe-throwing at MANIAX, transportation in our private, air-conditioned van, guided brewery tour with explanation of the brewing process, all beer samples at the breweries we visit, lunch, beer education and history, 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.

Absolutely NO ALCOHOL consumption prior to axe throwing. If you’ve had as much as a mouthful, you may find yourself relegated to the sidelines.

Closed-toe shoes a MUST. There are super sexy gumboots you get to wear (you, and about 1,496 other people) if we see your toesies.
