We loved our Urban Beery Odyssey so much, we decided to create a night time version.
Widely regarded as the cultural capital of Australia, Melbourne is currently witnessing the emergence of an exciting and vibrant craft beer scene, with urban breweries, cider bars and warehouse distilleries popping up all over the city. You no longer need to travel to regional Victoria for a decent drop – world-class brews are right on your doorstep.
Let Aussie Brewery Tours introduce you to Australia’s most awarded and innovative urban breweries and cider bars and whisky distilleries, where old-world styles and contemporary inspiration collide to create a drink-lover’s heaven! We will introduce you to chocolate, vanilla, coffee, toffee and bacon-flavoured beer, refreshing summer ales, crisp lagers, fruit-infused ales, experimental single-batch brews and dry and sweet ciders. From the biggest and oldest breweries in the country to the new kids on the block, this tour has it all!
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 and atmospheres which allows 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 specialty 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 may visit each tour:
Two Birds Brewery | The Crafty Squire | Temple Brewery | Moon Dog Brewery | Mountain Goat Brewery | Foresters Hall | Brunswick St Cider House | The Local Tap House | Craft and Co | Stomping Ground Brewery
