Are you ready to Hop On?
After pick up, the tour begins with a visit to Newstead Brewing Co to sample their core range of beers – plus maybe a few seasonal brews – and participate in a brewery tour.
The second stop is Green Beacon, where generous samples of beers are tasted, including some that have just been released.
From there it’s time to enjoy lunch and a paddle beer at the International Hotel, home to Archer Brewing, where the food is always delicious and will keep fuel levels up to continue enjoying cold brews.
The day closes with a stop at a fourth and final brewery. The tour is flexible, so on the day it can be based around timing, traffic and what guests have enjoyed so far.
Drop offs are at pick up locations or per request from guest (within reason).
Don’t have the entire day to sip beer? Want to fit something in before your afternoon flight? Aren’t sure you like beer much to begin with? (What?! Who?) Then come along on a half day Brisbane option and splash out on a Dash of Brisbane.
Visit some outstanding craft breweries in the City and the Valley and visit a favourite bar or two as well. Come and see what all the fuss is about and why Queensland craft beer is so hot it’s cool.
Luxuriate in the surf, sand and suds with a few brews on the iconic Gold Coast. Duck into residential neighbourhoods and be surprised and delighted with what you find, as Black Hops constantly brew new, unexpected styles of beer; have the chance to see an original and iconic Gold Coast brewery in action at Burleigh Brewing; and see what all the fuss is about at Balter (and maybe spot a surfer or two), where beach meets beer.
Throughout the day you will be kept well-fed and full of delicious beer, with plenty of samples accompanied by tasting notes and witty commentary. The brewers are happy to show you the ropes, help you understand the brewing process and answer any questions you may have.
Whether it’s a hot day and you need a cool drink or it’s a cool day and you want to warm up, their Coldie on the Goldie tour is perfect for all occasions.
