Returns to original departure point
Your tour starts in central Melbourne at Federation Square, where you’ll meet your guide and hop aboard your tour vehicle. As you learn about the brewing industry in Australia, enjoy a variety of beer samples, from lagers and ales to fruit beer, seasonal specialties and maybe even a cider. You'll also enjoy food tastings during the day.

The specific breweries visited on this tour vary each day, but you can expect to make stops at four different beer venues such as brewpubs, tasting rooms and beer gardens. Tour itineraries are designed to minimize how much time you spend in the vehicle so you can get the most enjoyment out of your experience. The flexible schedule allows your guide to perhaps stop for an extra tasting right out of the bright tank, if there’s time, or work around any special events that may be going on.

See the Itinerary for a list of possible venues you may visit around Melbourne.


Venues visited may include:

Carlton & United Breweries: Take a guided tour of the brewery, which has produced some of Australia’s most famous beers for more than 100 years. Learn about the brewery's history on your tour before stopping into the Carlton Brewhouse to sample six of the brews.

James Squire Brewhouse: A state-of-the-art craft brewery. Enjoy a generous tasting paddle of six of the regular or seasonal/specialty beers. Need more than beer for lunch? Sink your teeth into a delicious pub lunch with your complimentary drink.

Temple Brewery: Check out one of Melbourne's newest breweries for a tasting session of the extensive beer list. Along with amazing beers, Temple experiments with barrel-aged ales and fruit sours. The staff even collaborates with other brewers, plus takes suggestions from fans. Belly up to the bar to taste a beer or two, with food to accompany the drinks.

Moon Dog Brewery: Known for pushing the boundaries with some of the most interesting and entertaining beers in town, this brewery produces brews such as bloody mary beer, spiced pumpkin ales, cherry stouts, sours and barley wines.

Scott was really knowledgeable and relaxed, tour was very generous and fun! We changed our tour so we could also visit a gin distillery without a hassle. Fantastic lunch.

It is a lot of fun to be able to change the tour as required. We will always maintain those good relationships with our partners and keep our groups small so we can cruise around and attempt, as best we can, to tailor the tour to the group. Thanks for visiting and thanks for the review!
