Featured guest review:

‘They weren’t lying in the tour briefing when they said we wouldn’t go thirsty during this tour. We visited three different craft breweries: Temple, Stomping Ground and Burnley Brewery, and we we got to try a wide variety of lagers, pale ales, brown ales, stouts and sours. At the end of the day, who wouldn’t enjoy being driven around Melbourne for four hours of beer drinking? If that sounds like your kind of tour then you need to try this one out!’ Damon B

    They weren't lying in the tour briefing when they said we wouldn’t go thirsty during this tour. We visited three different craft breweries: Temple, Stomping Ground and Burnley Brewery, and we got to try a wide variety of lagers, pale ales, brown ales, stouts and sours. While the main attraction here is beer drinking, our guide also provided us with informative insights into the different brewing techniques used to make all of the different styles of beer, and took us out of our comfort zones by getting us to sample some of the more interesting beers available at the breweries. At the end of the day, who wouldn't enjoy being driven around Melbourne for four hours of beer drinking? If that sounds like your kind of tour then you need to try this one out!
