Take a guided tour of Queensland’s famous XXXX Brewery to learn about its history and sample some of its best beers. See the raw ingredients that make up the brews, and walk through the heart of the production area to see the process up close. Wrap up your tour by learning how to pour the perfect pint, then taste four of XXXX Brewery’s fresh beers.
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: XXXX Brewery Tour, Cnr Black and Paten Street Milton, Brisbane, Queensland 4064 Australia

In Queensland, XXXX means beer, but how did this iconic brew get its name? Find out on a fun and fascinating 90-minute tour of the XXXX brewery. Your guide greets you in the brewery’s visitor center. Enjoy an introduction to the history of beer making, and learn some of the brewery's techniques.

After your introduction, walk throughout the central parts of this historic site. Put on safety gear and check out the machinery that brews, stores and bottles beer.

Most weekdays, you can enter the Packaging Hall to marvel at the state-of-the-art packaging line. Watch thousands of beer bottles whiz past you on a distribution line; most breweries don't allow you to get this close!

Once you have delved into the inner workings of the brewery, get instruction on how to pour the perfect glass of beer in the XXXX Restaurant and Bar. Taste four freshly made brews with a new appreciation for the work that went into making the tasty beverage.

After about an hour and a half your tour wraps up. Feel free to kick back in the bar and enjoy XXXX's legendary beers or visit the gift shop before making your way to your next destination.

A very entertaining couple of hours, we only did the walking tour as we were given the vouchers as a gift. We noted that lunch which was served to the tour which finished before ours, looked very inviting and a generous serve. As the tour was on a Friday the plant was not 100% working, but, the history lesson and the information given by our guide (Josh I think) was very entertaining with a definite sense of humour. Tasha who was the hostess did a very good job organising the tour. Allan and Robyn

It was a great insight and history lesson on beer in general. Would have loved to see the operation in full swing but they don’t have the beer getting bottle and canned ect on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Food was good beer was good give it ago.

I've done many brewery tours before but this was my partner's first (and XXXX is his favourite beer so it was fitting). Jake was our tour guide and he made the tour very entertaining and informative. There were lots of little facts about the beer and the brewery that we took away as cool little tidbits. It's absolutely worth the price and made for a fun Sunday arvo. We stayed around after for a beer and burger (which was huge and tasty!). Overall a very relaxed tour while still providing a fun time and some knew knowledge about this beloved Aussie bevvie!

Our host was witty and knowledgeable with a touch of sarcasm! Just perfect for a beer tour. We did a tour back in 2010 and it has changed quite a lot. If you haven’t done it in the last 10 years, do yourself a favour and give it another go. The food was great so take the food and tour option! Well done Josh and Tasha.

Tour was awesome, had a great time. Very interesting and informative about Queensland’s beer history. Thanks Jake & Tom!

My partner and I visited the XXXX Brewery on Sunday the 22nd of August for a tour and we loved it! I learned a lot about the history of XXXX and the brewing process and would definitely recommend this as a fun date idea. Our tour guide Jake was funny and super charismatic and he made the experience even better.

Jeff M August 2021

Not being a fan of beer I was convinced to go there with a friend of mine. I've told the tour guide that I had low expectations and he flipped them inside out. It was a surprisingly fun experience that I'll remember for life but not because of its significance. The guide was extremely well put and did his job really well. Although even after the taste test he could not make me enjoy beer

Unfortunately this was cancelled due to COVID so we were unable to attend the excursion which was very disappointing. But alas it was not the brewery’s fault.

jyef2021 June 2021

We had a fantastic experience at the XXXX factory. Highly recommend a tour or even a visit to have a drink and feed. Shout out to our tour guide on the day Daniel! Dude you would rock more with VB in the taste testing! Go NSW.

shaundm2021 June 2021

Great tour with Lachlan, Knowledge of the brewery was outstanding along with the dad jokes ! Had a ball there and after the tour the tastings were just as informative. Thanks every one at Castlemaine brewery.

F943PTbradm June 2021

Jake was very informative and knowledgeable. Made the tour funny and easy to follow. The beer tasting after was a great finish to the tour. The only thing I would've liked to see was the original stubby holders for sale.

Qld2021 May 2021

Lauchlan was great. The tour was well done. Lauchlan was very keen to inform us of his knowledge of the history of the brewery and how the beer is made. Was impressed and glad we went.

Q1567DInaomim May 2021

Fantastic tour!! The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and had some great stories about the history of the brewery. Definitely recommend the tour for anyone who visits the Brisbane area, wether you drink beer or not.

Escape775037 May 2021

Lauchlan our guide was excellent! He displayed a knowledge and enthusiasm that was on the mark. Well worth while, as the history is extraordinary and the sheer volume of differing product was amazing! Suit both beer drinkers and none alike!

I have been on various brewery and distillery tours in the past. The XXXX Brewery Tour is pretty average in comparison. There were some items in the tour that were not operational due to unresolved maintenance issues. The location of the XXXX brewery is close to the CBD which is handy. The tour goes through various disjointed rooms like a maze and the guide initially shows a video of the history of the tour, then through the plant where the manufacturing of the beer occurs. At the end there is beer tasting of all the types of XXXX beer, which I am not a particular fan of and the taste met my expectations. If you have a few spare hours and want do do something that is close to the CBD, this may be an option for you. There is a free gift at the end of the tour, which is an item from their merchandise range. I hope this review is helpful : )

Jasmine797 April 2021

Such a great tour and had some really good burgers and taste tastings after. The tour guide was really friendly and insightful!

camicarvajaln April 2021

Really nice tour and learned lots about the whole process and history. The tour guide was super friendly as well. We took our 8-year old kid, it was a bit hard for him to understand haha but my husband definitely enjoyed it. Recommend having lunch after the tour, the burger are very nice!

CaitSchultz March 2021

Very informative and fun tour, loved the dad jokes from Lachlan. Also loved the food afterwards, great vibe with the pool table and music in the dining area.

316morganl March 2021

The tour has always been on my list to do as a Brisbane local, and it was a fantastic experience all round. Lachlan, our tour guide was great fun, not only informative and could answer all the questions, but made it a fun and enjoyable tour. Such a great adventure to learn all about this iconic QLD building and beer, followed by a much needed tasting.

D2007OLsamuelt February 2021

Really interesting tour. Me and the girlfriend went along and had a great time. We had Daniel, he was quite charismatic and made the tour really enjoyable. Was cool to see how the beer is made and all the science and intricate measures involved.

Brian M April 2020

This is a comprehensive tour of the XXXX brewery. Our guide was very good at explaining the various stages of brewing beer. At the end there is a tasting session.

nerra2017 March 2020

Had a great tour hosted by Daniel. On the day he found out the tours are being cancelled for the moment due to Covid 19,he was informative, enthusiastic and professional. Lots of interesting facts, great to see the brewery in action and enjoyed the beer tasting at the end - of 6 great beers. Recommend as an activity if you are visiting Brisbane. The food in the Alehouse Restaurant is good too. Best of luck to Daniel and his colleagues in these uncertain times.

sunsetfelton March 2020

Great tour that shows the whole process of the beer making cycle. Our tour guide was Tory and he was really knowledge and funny. Beer tasting at the end was great too.

yvonnelR7941ZA March 2020

We were fortunate enough to have Torry as a guide. He made the whole tour very interesting with a lot of humour. He really took great care of us even though we were there on a Saturday, so the factory was blissfully quiet...
For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
