Western Explorer Brewery Tour, BNE
Explore & taste microbreweries hidden in Brissie’s west!
Boutique craft breweries are popping up all over the country – giving the wine industry a run for its money! Our Western Explorer Brewery Tour for one person explores the hidden micro-breweries of Brisbane’s western suburbs – an area full of amazing history and creative beverages. During the 6-7 hour tour, lunch, snacks, water, a guide, and airconditioned van is all included, along with tastings, education and brewing process tours.
Depending on the pick-up location, the day begins at 10:30am or 10:45am before heading west to visit the funky Aether Brewery. Both their core range and often available ‘guest brews’ will be ready for tastings, along with creative explanations of the history of the place, ingredients, and a tour of the brewery to watch the brewing process.
After they have wet their whistle, 4 Hearts Brewing at the Pumpyard is next up. They will first take a tour of the stunning brewery located inside a history-laden building, where they can take as many photos as desired, before tasting a paddle of extensive 4 Hearts range while enjoying a well-matched mouth-watering lunch.
Next is the small boutique craft brewery, White Lies Brewing Co, found in Sumner Park on route back to the city. Here they can meet the owner/head brewer, Lee ‘Smiley’ McAlister for a chat about the creative processes that lead to delicious beers – while tasting them, of course!
Finally, a visit to one of Brissie’s latest craft breweries, Ballistic Beer Co, located in an old WWII style warehouse building just outside the city. Here they have established a seriously beautiful brewery, with funky vibes perfect to finish the day – complete with tastings and information aplenty.
Be collected at either 10:30am at The Gresham, or 10:45am at The Foundry – both great and easy city spots. Be dropped back of at either of these locations, or wherever else in the city is convenient for the guest. Great for a local Brisbanite keen to explore a brewery-filled area they don’t know too well, or for the tourist wanting to get out of the city.
