Our full day Eastern Expedition Brisbane brewery tour is perfect for those who want to get out of the city.


What a way to spend the day! It’s getting easier and easier to brewery-hop around Brisbane’s inner city so let us do the driving to some of the hidden gems that sit a bit outside of the CBD. We can assure you that once you have a few beers at Bacchus… well, it’s an expensive taxi back to the city! That’s why this tour is perfect – we drive and you relax.

Our Eastern Expedition tour visits four of the following venues.
We may mix it up a bit, but below is a rough itinerary of the day.
Lunch is generally served at the second brewery we visit.

Our alternative starting point is Future Magic, where a bit of brewing history really sets the scene for the rest of the day. The open brewery allows us to get onto the floor and better understand the brewing process.

Steeped in brewing history, Revel Brewing at Rivermakers is housed in a brick building dating back more than a century. With stories embedded in the walls, we’ll learn about the importance of the site as we sip on cold beers and enjoy a tasty burger for lunch!

Alternatively, we may visit Revel Brewing, Bulimba for some chill time in the brewers lounge and delicious wood-fired pizzas!

A bit off the beaten track is Hudson Brewing in Wynnum. Built from the ground up, Richard and Sarah have created a steampunk-inspired venue with delicious beers. Takeaway a four pack because the can designs are almost as good as the brews inside!

Everyone’s favourite Willy-Wonka beer factory is Bacchus Brewing, churning out hundreds of styles of beers each year! With more unique flavours that anyone else in Australia*, guests can sample Snickers-inspired ales, sour session IPAs, smoky styles, traditional English beers poured from a hand-pump, and more! Live tunes on the weekend mean we may have a hard time ripping you away from here when the tour is finished…

*May or may not be an exaggeration, but you get our drift.

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, lunch, beer education and history, snacks, and witty commentary (well, we think it is).

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 or distillery 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.
