What to Expect

What better way to cool down on the sizzling Gold Coast than with a full day beer exploration?! Come on this brewery tour and discover the surf, sand, and beer with a few award-winning brews around the iconic Gold Coast!


The tour makes stops at 4 incredible venues, which will vary on the day with availability. However, it'll include a combination of Lost Palms, Precinct Brewing, Black Hops, Burleigh Brewing Co, or Balter Brewing. At each, you'll enjoy delicious tasters of the beers as well as snacks and witty commentary. 


The tour starts with an introduction to beer’s main ingredients and a few tasters to experience the unique flavours in each beer and understand the differences in what you’re drinking, whether it’s a lager or a stout. Once you've had a chat about the history of beer and a solid basic understanding of how everything fits together, you'll go behind the scenes to see where the action takes place. The brewers are happy to show you the ropes, help you understand the brewing process and answer any questions you may have.


Throughout the day we keep you well-fed and full of delicious beer, with a tasty lunch included at one of the venues. They all offer mouthwatering options, accompanied, of course, by a tasting paddle of their best brews accompanied by tasting notes and witty commentary. Whether it's a hot day and you need a cool drink or it's a cool day and you want to warm up, this Coldie on the Goldie tour is perfect for all occasions. 


The Breweries


Duck into a residential neighbourhood to be surprised and delighted with what Black Hops has on tap; here we will have the chance to check out their brewery and taste their fresh brews. If head brewer Michael "Govs" McGovern is around, he'll take time out to answer questions you may have and tell the stories behind each of the beers on offer.


Lost Palms Brewing has taken a unique, chilled-out vibe to their space, filled with bright colours and thirst-quenching beers.Comfy couches mean you can sit back and sip your brews in comfort. If head brewer Chris is around he can take us through the brewing process to get a better understanding of what makes your beer beer.


From here we might move on to an original and iconic Gold Coast brewery: Burleigh Brewing, where we will walk through the brewery and learn about their history as the longest-operating brewery on the Gold Coast. Taste their core range, plus maybe a "bit on the side" (seasonal release beers) and marvel at the size of their brewery.


Of course, no trip would be complete without the so-hot-it's-cool Balter (maybe we'll even spot a surfer or two!), where the beach meets beer. Award-winning brewer Scotty Hargreave creates some delicious beers to keep you refreshed, and we'll have a tasting paddle here.

Frequently Asked Questions

You must be 18 years or older. Our venues may ask for ID so make sure you bring some, preferably a driver’s license. If you can’t legally drink, you won’t have much fun anyway.

The tours are fully inclusive, meaning we supply all the beer you need. Each venue on the tour includes roughly 4-6 x 120ml beer samples at each venue, which adds up to quite a bit! No one has ever finished the day and said they didn’t get enough to drink.

We absolutely suggest you take advantage of visiting the breweries and buy beer on-site – you never know where you might next get it – but ONLY for takeaway! While you will receive plenty of delicious beer samples during our visits, our craft breweries offer takeaway cans, bottles and/or growlers.

It’s possible you may get tipsy on one of our tours – we’re plying you with delicious, easy-drinking brews, many of which have a higher alcohol content than you may be used to! – but that isn’t the end game.

Our tours focus on education and appreciation, which means taking the time to enjoy each beer sample we provide you. Whilst there is a fair amount of beer involved in the day, we do not allow drinking on the van and we strongly discourage additional purchases at the venues we visit. To put it simply, the day is not a pub crawl or booze bus, but a way to taste and learn about different varieties and flavours in beer.

Please note that we reserve the right to ask you to stop drinking (trust us, we’re looking out for you). We will also take any action we deem reasonable, including removing you from the tour (with no refund and no way home), to ensure the tour remains safe and enjoyable for all guests. Each venue has the right under the Responsible Service of Alcohol laws to stop serving you. You may also be asked to leave the venue.

Please remember, it’s about better beer – not more beer.

We suggest wearing closed-toe shoes as we will be visiting working breweries which may have that as a requirement – and we would hate for you to miss out on something cool due to footwear (or possibly step in something you’d rather not). If your toes are showing you may be asked to wear a pair of the brewer’s gumboots for safety. Not a sexy look. The choice is yours.

Aside from that, wear something comfortable and that you are happy to pose for photos in.

Each tour has a specific pick up point listed, and drop off points also vary, but you’ll either end where you began or at a beer bar of your choice from our list of partners.

Whilst we do not have a wheelchair lift in our van, there is plenty of space if the wheelchair is one that folds up and the guest is able to stand briefly while getting in/out of the van. All of the venues we visit are wheelchair friendly as well, with most situated on one level.

We have had the pleasure of welcoming many guests over the years with varying degrees of vision impairment, so please join us. Just advise when booking if you will be accompanied by a guide dog so we can ensure there is plenty of space.

Our team is signed up to begin to learn AUSLAN for guests with hearing impairments, but we’re not quite there yet. Please feel free to contact us directly and we can work out a way for you to get the best experience during your tour.

NO. By law, there can be no drinking on the bus. You really won’t need to anyway. Trust us, there is going to be plenty of beer at each venue.
