Hunter Valley Beer Belly Tour
Explore the lesser-known, but equally amazing beer scene of the Hunter Valley on this half day tour, including beer tastings.
- Additional glasses of beer or any takeaway purchases
WHAT TO EXPECT
The Hunter Valley is famous for its wine, but a cheeky vinos isn't everyone's cup of tea. Luckily, we've done the hard yards researching the best new Hunter Valley made boutique beers, so you can sit back, relax with a cold one and be chauffeured around on this half-day brewery tour.
To start, you'll be picked up in the afternoon from selected Hunter Valley accommodation, and whisked around in a luxury van. The first stop is Ironbark Hill Brewhouse. It's situated on the grounds of Peter Drayton Wines, surrounded by grapevines and sprawling vineyards. Every day you will find 10 beers and 2 ciders pouring fresh on tap, ranging from pale ales and lagers to stouts and porters.
The second brewery on the itinerary will vary, depending on availability and the group. Wherever you end up though, you'll indulge in another generous tasting paddle of the fresh, local brews.
The final stop on the itinerary is a unique cheese and beer matching at Two Fat Blokes Gourmet Kitchen. Taste 4 local tap beers from the Hunter Valley Beer Company with a selection of cheese and antipasto. There’s time to relax as your guide takes you through these flavours which is a whole lot of fun!
Where we visit:
- Ironbark Hill Brewhouse
- Two Fat Blokes Gourmet Kitchen
- A 3rd local brewery, which will vary on the day

How many participants are there?
What sort of vehicles do you use?
We have 2 Mercedes Sprinters, 1 Mercedes Vito and 2 Nissan El Grands.
How do your vehicles differ from other tours?
Our modern luxury vehicles are spacious and comfortably seat up to 12 guests. This allows for an easy and fun interaction within a small group setting (unavailable in smaller sedans, limos or bikes) and access to boutique locations. Other bigger bus tours get limited access to the more public tasting areas, with tasting queue delays, slow transitions and too many individual schedules.
Does bad weather stop tours?
No. Our tours are not affected by weather and will run rain, hail or shine.
Do you have disabled access?
The Kitchen and Deli is at ground level with easy access for disabled customers. Our tours unfortunately do not cater to wheelchairs.
Is there a lot of walking on your tours?
No, there is not a lot of walking, just enough to keep it fun. You should be mobile enough to get in and out of a van, and we park close to each brewery so there are no big hikes to the front door.
What beverages are included on the tour?
All beer tastings during the experience are included. Chilled water will be available in the van.
Can I bring my child?
No. Your child would be confused by a group of tipsy adults singing, “Come on Eileen” when they really don’t know the words. Fun, yes, but not pretty…
Can I bring my dog?
No. As some cellar doors do not allow dogs.
Is there room on the bus to store any wine that I buy?
Yes, when you purchase your beer, the brewery will label it with your name and we will store it safely in the bus for you.
What do I wear?
Dress comfortably for the season you are visiting. There is no dress code but please respect the establishments you are visiting and dress appropriately as you would in any other licensed club or venue… and leave the ACDC sleeveless T at home!
