Our full day Hatchets & Hops brewery tour gets your blood pumping


Discover your inner viking! Start the day with some lessons in axe-throwing and spend an hour honing your skills before cooling down with a few frothies. This axe throwing and brewery tour combo is the perfect activity for friends, family, or work groups looking for something different.

After our time at LUMBER PUNKS, we will stay in the area and visit Brisbane breweries around the inner-city with a tour of at least one brewery. We’ll chat with the people that produce this liquid gold and even enjoy some history with your beer education.

Other combo options: Karting & Coldies, Bee-R & VR

Our Hatchets & Hops tour starts at Lumber Punks then visits three 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 first brewery we visit.

Lumber Punks Axe Throwing is a guaranteed good time, whether you feel like a viking or not. When you sink your first bullseye, you’ll be hooked.

With individual coaching and target practice, you’ll play a tournament against your mates to see who wins bragging rights as the champion axe thrower. They might even have to buy you a beer of your choosing after your brewery tour and education!

A short walk – listerally a stone’s throw! – away is one of Brisbane’s many award-winning breweries, Brew Baron Beer Co. With a range of styles you’re unlikely to find anywhere else, an open view of the brewing equipment, a secreted away mezzanine, and delicious lunch options, we will cool down with some a beer paddle and fill our bellies with a scrumptious meal here.

A short drive away is one of Brisbane’s original breweries, Brisbane Brewing Co. A husband-and-wife-owned brewery with a taphouse in Woolloongabba as well, there’s always something to surprise and delight on their ever-changing taps. Maybe a Walker IPA or a nice summery stout? We’ll check out the menu and find your favourite.

Situated in the shadow of the iconic XXXX brewery, Milton Common, home to Common Ground Brewing, makes beer for the people. Here we may settle down for a delicious lunch accompanied by a tasting paddle or schooner of cold beer. If owner Jimmy is around, he’ll likely pull up a stool, steal a few chips, and have a chin-wag about his motivation and inspiration behind this welcoming Milton mecca.

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.

The options listed above are only a suggestion, but we will constantly be chopping and changing to share the love across Brisbane craft breweries.

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: 1.5-hour education and axe-throwing at Lumber Punks, 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.

Absolutely NO ALCOHOL consumption prior to axe throwing. If you’ve had as much as a mouthful, you may find yourself relegated to the sidelines.

Closed-toe shoes a MUST. There are super sexy gumboots you get to wear (you, and about 1,496 other people) if we see your toesies.
