TO TASTE RGE GOLDIE IN A FLASH
With this brewery tour, we offer the chance to get out of the city for a breath of fresh air, some true farmhouse hospitality and introduction to a wide range of beer styles and flavours.
Take some time to explore the area on your own, and see what happens behind the scenes of a busy brewery. Get ready for a fun and unique day out with a Taste of Tamborine.
Number of guests per tour – This tour accommodates a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 10 guests (get in touch for information on larger group sizes). Your order will be confirmed once we have filled 2 seats on the tour.
This tour is operated by our great mates Hop on Brewery Tours. We only partner with the BEST Tour Operators in our favourite places to ensure you have the best local beer adventure.
WHERE YOU WILL GO
- NEWSTEAD BREWING CO.
After your pick up, we will begin the day with beer tasting at Newstead Brewing Co where you’re encouraged to sample all the core range of beers on tap – plus maybe a few seasonal or one-off beers. Your guides will take you through beer ingredients, including some witty, historical commentary, and enlist a brilliant Newstead team member to walk you through the brewery and explain the complete brewing process.
Like what you’ve tasted? Grab a couple six-packs or purchase a growler to fill and refill with your favourite beers from Newstead Brewing Co.
- BEENLEIGH RUM DISTILLERY
Breaking up the journey down the M1 we stop in at Beenleigh Rum Distillery in Beenleigh. Here you will be treated to a tour of the working artisan rum distillery and sample the products when finished. We have plenty of room in our van for you to bring a couple bottles home with you.
Another half an hour drive gets us to the top of Mount Tamborine. Take in the stunning scenery along the way, chat with your fellow beer appreciators, swap first-beer stories, or maybe play some trivia and win prizes!
- FORTITUDE BREWING CO.
Upon arrival at Fortitude Brewing we will see the working brewery and all the equipment involved in producing some delicious beer. We will grab paddles for everyone to taste Fortitude’s core range of beers and enjoy them over pizzas.
After lunch we’ll give you some free time to explore Gallery Walk on your own (30-45 minutes depending on time), where you can pick up souvenirs, taste fudge or even mix up the day by sampling some local wines (at your own cost) before we load up the van to continue down the hill (roughly 30 minutes) to our final stop.
Be aware that the road down is a bit windy, so if you suffer from motion or car sickness, please ensure you have something to combat it or sit near the front of the van.
- MALTY GRAIN
The amazing brewer from Beard & Brau, Chris “Fish” Herring, teamed up with his wife Tanya and created the newly-opened Malty Grain, a farmhouse-style restaurant serving Beard & Brau on tap with plates of tapas and desserts to sample. With an events calendar hosting everything from live music to beer-and-food matching degustations, guests will be pleasantly surprised with the warm and inviting atmosphere here.
Situated on roughly 4 acres, the Malty Grain is a diamond in the rough, located on the outskirts of Beenleigh, and provides a beautiful setting for relaxing and enjoying a unique style of beer. Fish is usually around to answer any questions that come up, also, and we can have a discussion here about the environmental impacts of beer, sustainability in the industry and how drinking local is better for the world!
SOMETIMES THINGS CHANGE – Because our Brisbane beer tours are truly behind the scenes experiences sometimes our plans need to change to accommodate brewery operations. And sometimes we just know about beer goings on around town that are worth checking out, so we may change some parts of our tours. Whilst these changes are rare, we do reserve the right to make them. If you do have a MUST-SEE beer spot, please let us know when making your booking and we’ll do all we can to make it happen.
