Staff will offer you a wine flight for 6 Gerler wines - City Winery's own brand - and self guided tasting instructions.

Best of Brisbane
AU$170
After your pick up, we will begin our day by visiting Newstead Brewing Co where you have the chance to sample their core range of beers – plus maybe a few seasonal brews if you’re lucky - and get treated to a behind-the-scenes guided tour of a working brewery, where an incredible staff member will talk you through the brewing process and methods involved in getting your beer from ingredients to finished product. Around the corner we stop into Green Beacon Brewing Co for some generous samples of their award-winning beer. While we recommend a few for you based on what tried previously, there's flexibility to try their seasonal releases and even cider if it's on tap. Learning about the brewing process can be hungry work, so at our third stop you not only get a delicious lunch to soak up your previous samples, but a schooner of their brewed-on-site beer or another tasting paddle. We share the love with our lunch venues and may be chowing down at Aether Brewing, Soapbox Beer or Sea Legs Brewing. After a leisurely visit, we end our day with a stop at one of the various other breweries around town, from Semi-Pro to Ballistic to Bacchus to anything in between! Each brewery offers a core range to taste, as well as constantly creating some new and exciting flavours that we may find on tap. Once back in the city, we will drop you off at your pick up location or a venue that suits you - within reason, of course! Don't forget to bring a photo ID with you. Closed-toe shoes recommended. Strictly no drinking on the vehicle. Itinerary subject to change based on opening hours, events, traffic, etc.

Dash of Brisbane

Welcome to a Dash of Brisbane! Don't have the entire day to sip beer? Want to fit something in before your afternoon flight? Aren't sure you like beer much to begin with? (What?! Who?) Then come along on our half day Brisbane option and splash out on a Dash of Brisbane. We visit some outstanding craft breweries in the City and the Valley and maybe visit a favourite bar as well. Come and see what all the fuss is about and why Queensland craft beer is so hot it's cool. All itineraries will include visits to Newstead Brewing Co, and Green Beacon for generous samples of their core range (and maybe some seasonal releases if we're lucky!) as well as a guided brewery tour to explain the intricacies of the brewing process. Our third venue of the tour will rotate between Aether Brewing Co., Brisbane Brewing Co., All Inn Brewing Co., Semi-Pro Brewing, or one of the other outstanding craft breweries in the area. Don't forget to bring a photo ID with you. Closed-toe shoes recommended. Strictly no drinking on the vehicle. Itinerary subject to change based on opening hours, events, traffic, etc.

Coldie on the Goldie
AU$170
We'll start with some lunch at a classic Gold Coast craft beer bar, where each meal paired will be paired with a paddle of cold frothies. Here we will dive into the history and ingredients of beer and revel in one of Gold Coast's best beer venues.  Maybe we'll start at Madocke Beer Brewing, a hole-in-the-wall Belgian brewery run by real Belgians! Suss out a saison or try a tripel; this is one of our guests' favourite places to visit! After some lunch, we'll 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. From here we will 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 beach meets beer. Award-winning brewer Scotty Hargreave creates some delicious beers to keep you refreshed, and we'll have a tasting paddle here. The day will see us visiting THREE of the FOUR breweries on the Gold Coast, along with lunch. Throughout the day we keep you well-fed and full of delicious beer, with plenty of samples accompanied by tasting notes and witty commentary. The brewers are happy to show you the ropes, help you understand the brewing process and answer any questions you may have. Whether it's a hot day and you need a cool drink or it's a cool day and you want to warm up, our Coldie on the Goldie tour is perfect for all occasions.  Don't forget to bring a photo ID with you. All your friends may know you're of-age, but it's only the first time we've met, and we'd hate for you to get turned away from any of the breweries by looking too young to appreciate good brews. Strictly no drinking on the vehicle.

Southern Sessions
AU$170
Join us as we visit the brewing sensations south of the Brisbane river on our Southern Sessions tour! After pick up at your designated location, we will start the day at Brisbane Brewing Co for a great tasting paddle and explanation of what goes into your beer! Once we finish here, we'll sidle on down the road for a filling lunch and more beers to sample at either Archive Beer Boutique or Revel Brewing Co in Bulimba, where we can relax and enjoy some great food, sip on super fresh beers and get a tour of the brewery (at Revel) and a chat with head brewer, Matty. Next comes the short drive to Yeerongpilly to visit the quickly-growing Slipstream. With so many great brews on offer, we recommend you pair up with a buddy to taste as many as possible! An excellent place for locals, Slipstream's head brewer, Ian Watson, is one of the best in the business - and we're sure you'll agree! Pick up a few 4-packs or fill a growler or squealer of their fine product so you can savour it later tonight! Our final stop of the day is Ballistic Beer Co, where their VIP treatment gets guests onto the brewery floor - truly in the thick of things! - and treated to four of their finest! Their beers are top notch, so we will save room in the esky for any takeaways you grab. There's a food truck here in case you're feeling peckish (food not included at this stop) so feel free to grab something to munch on. After our day has finished, we're happy to drop you back in the city at a bar or restaurant of your choosing, or to where you need to be (within reason). Don't forget to bring a photo ID with you. All your friends may know you're of-age, but it's only the first time we've met, and we'd hate for you to get turned away from any of the breweries by looking too young to appreciate good brews. Strictly no drinking on the vehicle.

Don't forget to bring a photo ID with you. All your friends may know you're of-age, but it's only the first time we've met, and we'd hate for you to get turned away from any of the breweries by looking too young to appreciate good brews.
