Our Dash of Brisbane tour visits three of the following venues.
We may mix it up a bit, but below is a rough itinerary of the day.

Green Beacon Brewing Co, voted 2018’s Champion Medium Australian Brewery, is one of Brisbane’s oldest breweries. With seasonal releases throughout the year and a refreshing core range, Green Beacon encompasses the community spirit brought back to Australia after worldly travels.

A new brewery with an old soul, Working Title has big shoes to fill as they take over the space that was once Newstead, one of Brisbane’s OG breweries. Not to worry, though! With plenty of experience (and a bit of lunacy) at the helm, the beers and the venue will keep you coming back for more. Get a bit of Brissie history in this 1940s-built building, plus try some cracking releases on-site.

Guests have the chance to check out one of Brisbane’s hidden breweries, Common Ground, set inside Milton Common, where you will receive a warm welcome and cold beers. Their taps are always rotating, with several guest beers on tap, and serving anything from an IPA to a sour, so come along to see what’s on today!

When was the last time you got up on your soap box? Sharing the community spirit is what Soapbox Beer is all about – that, and having good conversation! With beer names that inspire a chat and maybe a giggle, this funky Valley venue always offers guests something to talk about.

Situated under the Story Bridge at the tip of Kangaroo Point, Sea Legs Brewing offers a delicious selction of core range and seasonal beers to quench everyone’s thirst! Plan to be riveted by their stainless steel tanks, North American sport on TV and even classic arcade games.

There are SO MANY breweries in Brisbane that we can’t list them all here, so rest assured that we may head north, east, south or west to quench your thirst with Brisbane’s best beers.

Where a location is indicated, we will pick up you outside the venue so please keep an eye out for our van – you can’t miss it!

Pick Ups:

  • The Gresham (308 Queen Street, Brisbane) is an historic pub in central Brisbane. From Central Station, exit toward Ann Street. Past the ANZAC Memorial and through Post Office Square, next to the NAB, you’ll find The Gresham tucked away. Alternatively, you can exit toward Edward Street, head down the hill and turn left onto Queen Street. Walk about 1/2 block and The Gresham will be next to the NAB on your left. Please note The Gresham does not open until 4pm on Saturdays and is closed on Sundays; we will still pick up here and there are plenty of places around Post Office Square to get a coffee and/or breakfast.
  • Prince Consort Hotel (230 Wickham St, Fortitude Valley) is a very short walk from the Fortitude Valley Station – come out, hang a left and turn right and there you are!

We are flexible with our drop-off locations within the city based on guests’ needs and requests.

Included in the price: transportation in our private, air-conditioned van, guided brewery tour with explanation of the brewing process, all beer samples at the breweries we visit, beer education and history, snacks, and witty commentary (well, we think it is). Please note that no food is included in this tour, so please have a good meal before joining us.

Please note that we are visiting working breweries and it’s suggested you wear closed-toe shoes so you don’t miss out on any of the fun. Also, since they don’t always run on a set schedule, we will try and catch the brewers in action but that can’t always be guaranteed; keep an open mind on the day because no matter what or who we see, the beers are always epic. Sometimes the itineraries will change at a whim; this may be because of traffic, a last-minute decision from the brewery or any number of things, so we ask for your patience and flexibility.

If there is a brewery you’re keen to check out, please include the request in the “Special Requirements” section when making your booking and we will try our best to make it happen.
