Aussie Brewery Tours loves flexible touring, free from time constraints and overbearing guides. Forget the winery tour model – come in, have the smallest taste possible, then we will all stare at you awkwardly until you sign up to our wine club, buy a case and get out. Our tours are about generous tastings and soaking up the atmosphere of each different venue with a glass of your favourite. We know when it is time to move on when there are more empty glasses than full glasses.

This relaxed touring, coupled with a wide range of partners, ensures that we have numerous different venues (brew pubs & restaurants, tastings rooms, beer gardens, etc) which have different products (gin, fruit wines, beers, ciders, kombucha, gourmet food, etc) that allow us to pick the best of the best for that particular tour day. We may mix up our itinerary depending on the season, day of the week, what speciality products are available, traffic and big events, the weather and venue constraints (like when a brewery recently had a spill and had to shut for the day – thankfully they spilled cleaning products and not beer, phew!).

So rather than a detailed, minute by minute itinerary, we will tell you about some of the stops we visit each day:

  • Napoleone Brewery & Ciderhouse: With over 10 different beers and ciders to sample and VIP access to their brewery and beer garden, this is fantastic and immersive stop.
  • St Ronan's Cider at Badget Creek Blueberry Winery: Over 8 different ciders, ports, blueberry wines and champagnes to try before we shout you a complimentary drink of your favourite.
  • Buckley's Beer: The oldest brewery in the Yarra Valley will see us try their range of lagers and ales, as well as cheeky kombucha or two.
  • Hargreaves Hill Brewery: Amazing tasting paddles and mouth watering food await you at Hargreaves Hill all washed down with a glass of your favourite beer or cider.
  • Coldstream Brewery: A great little brewery pub, Grab a tasting paddle, a glass of their beer or cider or even treat yourself to a cider cocktail!
  • Public Brewery: Try one of their beers or one from their extensive range of beer, wine and cider from around Victoria as you chill out in their beer garden.
  • Four Pillars Gin Distillery: Immerse yourself in the world of gin with a tasting at this award winning state of the art distillery.
  • Riders Brewing Co & Kellbrothers cider at Kellybrook winery: We will stop in at their family owned and run winery to sample their fantastic ciders, beers and calvados (apple brandy).

A classy weekender treat that is both sweet and intoxicating, with lots of brain food thrown into the mix as one learns about the history of ale and cider-making in this region, the Yarra Valley Cider and Ale Trail is one for the books when it comes to decadent and tasteful gifts for men.

Uncover the Best Beer Gifts for All Special Occasions at Gifts Australia!

Beer gifts could be used for many occasions; this includes birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and other celebrations. Of course, there are different types of beer gifts, which means some are more suitable for certain occasions than others. Want to get a beer gift for a specific occasion? Check out our beer gift recommendations for common special occasions below.

What Beer Gift Do You Recommend for a Milestone Birthday?

If your recipient is celebrating a milestone birthday, we suggest choosing a beer gift from our experiences range. Celebrating a new milestone in life is all about creating new memories, something that is certainly possible with a beer experience from Gifts Australia.

One beer experience suitable for a milestone birthday is the Cider & Ale Trail in Yarra Valley. This experience is a genuine beer tour, which takes the participant along some of the must-see sights for Australian beer lovers; this may include the Napoleone Brewery & Ciderhouse, St. Ronan’s Cider at Badget Creek Blueberry Winery, Buckley’s Beer, Hargreaves Hill Brewery, Coldstream Brewery, Public Brewery, Four Pillars Gin Distillery, and many others!

Please note that the itinerary for the Yarra Valley Cider & Ale Trail may vary by the time of year your recipient takes the tour. Of course, no matter which time of year this tour is taken, participants can always rely on an unforgettable experience!

What Beer Gift Do You Recommend for an Anniversary?

For an anniversary, we usually recommend an exquisite selection of beers. At Gifts Australia, customers can find different beer hampers. Each of these beer hampers contains an exquisite selection of Australian or international beers, enabling you to pick beers that match your recipient.

If you are not that familiar with beers and which ones might be best for your recipient, we suggest going for a safe choice such as the Premium United Nations of Beer Hamper. The Premium United Nations of Beer Hamper at Gifts Australia contains some of the best beers in the world; this includes La Trappe, Bitburger, and Hoegaarden. Therefore, this is an excellent choice for any beer lover.

What Beer Gift Do You Recommend for Christmas?

For Christmas, you could choose a beer gift that could be treasured for a long time. Instead of choosing a beer hamper, which contains beers that will highly likely be drunk during the Christmas season, you could choose some designer beer glasses instead.

One set of beer glasses you could consider for Christmas is the Eva Solo Boutique Beer Glass Set. The Eva Solo Boutique Beer Glass Set contains two designer glasses from Eva Solo. The glasses are designed specifically for beer, since the overall design of the glasses optimises its flavour and aroma.

There are other designer drinking glasses at Gifts Australia, so you are not limited to beer glasses. For example, if you are buying a Christmas gift for a whiskey lover, you could choose one of the designer whiskey glasses available in our catalogue.

Which Novelty Beer Gifts Could I Gift for a Special Occasion?

Novelty beer gifts could also be an option for a special occasion, especially if your recipient is someone with a good sense of humour. At Gifts Australia, you can find several novelty beer gifts; this includes a book titled – “Brewed with Balls: The Most Outlandish Beers on the Planet”.

“Brewed with Balls: The Most Outlandish Beers on the Planet” is written by author Steph Bishop Hall. The book counts a total of 160 pages, which provide an accurate overview of 68 of the world’s weirdest beers. Beer lovers will need a strong stomach to read this book though, since it contains beers brewed with bull testicles and beers smoked with sheep poo.

If your recipient is not a reader, you could also choose a novelty beer game from Gifts Australia. One such a beer game is Beer Pong, a classic drinking game that is a big hit during parties and celebrations. The Beer Pong Game at Gifts Australia contains everything your recipient needs to play beer pong. The set contains 24 plastic cups and three plastic balls, which means your recipient is all set to play beer pong during a special occasion!
