Fundraising

Looking for a new and different way to fundraise?

We are passionate about our local community and charities. Australians are a giving bunch and we love getting involved. We can organize tours and dinners with a fundraising focus:

  • Aussie Brewery Tours will donate 15% of its tour price to the cause. Along with our donation, we can also add a small surcharge, usually 5-10%, to our regular price, which is also added to the fund. (We reserve the right to choose which organisations and charities we choose to work with).
  • On our tours or during dinners, we can run different activities to raise more money: auctions, games, trivia, raffles, etc.
  • We can work with your club/group, bars, local businesses and breweries to organize donations.
  • All products are subject to our terms and conditions. We recommend you read these before making a purchase. Our frequently asked questions section is also a wealth of information about pick-up locations, cancellation policies, etc.

Contact us today to talk about your next charity function:

  • Group sizes: Our private events are for between 2-100. There are limitations on venue sizes and how many people some activities can cater for. Let us know your group size and we will work with you to create a tour that works pefectly for your group. 
  • Tours: Our all-inclusive tours visit the best breweries, cideries, distilleries, restaurants and wineries across Victoria. Each tour is customised to be all inclusive with food, snacks, tasting fees, guides, transport and complimentary drinks all a part of our packages.
  • Lunches & Dinners: Fancy a hosted beer (cider or wine) and food matching lunch or dinner, Aussie Brewery Tours can host 3-7 course dinners for up to 100 guests.

Different Tour Regions

Aussie Brewery Tours have VIP access at all of the venues we visit. We believe in relaxed touring, where we move at the pace of the group, soaking up the atmosphere at each stop with a few extra drinks (click on the headings for some really basic information on some of the venues you may visit):

  • Yarra Valley: Only an hour from Melbourne, the Yarra Valley has a fantastic, diverse mix of venues and products for you to explore. No longer just a wine region it has multiple breweries, cideries, distilleries and top-class restaurants.
    • Highlights: Visit wineries, craft breweries, cideries and distilleries of the iconic and beautiful Yarra Valley.
    • Perfect for: Mixed groups who want to try a wide range of great products (craft beer, cider, gin, vodka, whisky, moonshine, champagne ciders, blueberry wines/ports and regular grape wines) in a fun and relaxing setting.
    • Time Required: Full day touring is best for the Yarra Valley.
    • Venues: Watts River Brewing; Napoleone Cider House & Detour Brewery; Coldstream Brewery; The Hotel Grand - Yarra Glen; Alchemy Distillery; Four Pillars Distillery; The Public Brewery; Punt Road Wines; Helen and Joey Winery; St Ronan's Cider @ Badger Creek Blueberry Winery; Oakridge Winery; Meletos; Riders Brewing Co and Kellybrothers Cider @ Kellybrook Winery. 
  • Urban Melbourne: When Aussie Brewery Tours first opened we struggled to get a really awesome urban tour up and running. Now we could do 3-4 different tours without visiting the same places - it's amazing! With cocktail bars specialising in specific spirits, awesome restaurants, craft breweries and inner-city wineries Melbourne and its surrounding suburbs are choc-full of amazing places to tour.
    • Highlights: Brewpubs, distillery tasting rooms, inner-city wineries and cocktail bars are popping up all over Urban Melbourne. Come and explore them with your own host to guide you along.
    • Best for: Groups who don't want, or don't have time, to head out of the city.
    • Time Required: Tours in Melbourne can be run in as little as 3.5 hours during the day or night.

  • Mornington Peninsula: We have an inside joke in tourism, "The Peninsula Secretly Doesn't Like You". This isn't because they aren't welcoming or have amazing hospitality, instead it is just because the peninsula likes to remain a bit hidden, a little secretive. It's a quiet place for those in-the-know to explore rather than a mass tourism destination. Aussie Brewery Tours is in the know and will help you explore!
    • Highlights: Get out of the city and visit the breweries, cideries, wineries and distilleries along the Mornington Peninsula. 
    • Best for: Groups looking to do a bit of sipping and tasting in the morning, followed by live music with a beer, wine or cider in the afternoon.
    • Time Required: Full day touring is best for the Mornington Peninsula and it is better to visit from Wednesday through to Sunday.
    • Venues: Red Hill Brewery; Bass and Flinders Distillery; JimmyRum; Jetty Road Brewery; St Andrews Beach Brewery; Mr Banks Brewing Co; Mornington Peninsula Brewery; Mock Red Hill Cider; Old Apple Shed; Green Olive (winery); Jones Road; Tucks Ridge; Hix Beer @ Hickenbotham Winery; Stonier Wines.

Extra Activities

Aussie Brewery Tours has hand-picked the best activity providers across Victoria. We will organise your entire tour, including transport, guide, lunch, tasting sessions and extra activities. Most of these activities are completed before we begin drinking - even though we think clay target shooting would be a lot of fun after a few beers! There are others, like brewing beer or cocktail making classes, that are okay to drink at. The prices for extra activities can range significantly depending on the number of people, the package you choose, etc. Generally, prices are between $35pp-$250pp:

  • Go-Karting (from $80pp): Your own personal track time, with qualifying (10mins) + race 1 (10mins) + race 2 (15mins). Average distance raced - 36.75km.
  • Clay Target Shooting (from $95pp): 25 or 30 targets sessions available (30 target session includes a 10 target competition and trophy for the winner). Shoot at a variety of targets (singles and doubles) under full instruction - no gun licence required.
  • Paintball (from $50pp): 200 paintballs and all equipment included - guns, masks, overalls (gloves and box extra). A variety of outdoor fields and game scenarios. Up to 3 hours play.
  • Laser Strike (from $50pp): 4 x 15-minute outdoor games with a variety of different weapons (each with its own range, number of shots) and different game scenarios.
  • Bubble Soccer (from $50pp): Bubble soccer a ton of, a lot of laughs and a good way to get the competitive juices flowing before we continue on the tour. There is nothing like a little bit of running around to work up a thirst.
  • Cocktail Making Classes (from $75pp): We won't quiet take you down to Kokomo, but, we will let you channel your best Tom Cruise as you spin, mix and swirl your way through a number of different cocktails under the expert tutelage of a mixologist. Random cocktails, martini's for the next time James Bond cruises over or a theme of your choice. Where do you want your cocktail journey to take you?
  • Beer and/or Whisky Matched Lunches and Dinners: Upgrade your food stop to include a beer and/or whisky matched, 3-course meal, where each course is expertly matched to a drink.
  • Brew your own beer: Choose from 13+ styles of beer and brew under full instruction from a professional brewer. Each kettle makes between 4-5 slabs of beer for you to keep (one kettle is good for 1-4 people to brew). Brew day is roughly 3 hours. Return to the brewery 3 weeks later to bottle your beer, or pay for the brewery to bottle and deliver it to you. Create a custom label for your beer.
  • Make your own wine or gin: Have you ever longed to retire to a vineyard or live the exciting life of a bootlegger? Let us make your dreams come true you create your own wine or gin, bottled and ready to drink at your next party. (winemaking is seasonal)
  • Archery Attack (from $35pp): Paintball, meets dodgeball, meets robin hood. Whether it is taking out the boss, sneaking up on your best mate or storming over the top to confront the accounting team archery is a fun activity for both small and large groups.
  • Axe Throwing (from $55pp): Do we need to sell this one? Channel your inner Viking and challenge your friends or co-workers to some good old axe throwing fun!
  • Escape Rooms: This is a fantastic team building activity or some geeky sleuthing fun for a group of friends. Get given your back story, get into character and solve all manner of mind-bending riddles and puzzles to complete your mission and escape the room. Whilst most rooms are designed for 2-6 players, multiple rooms can be played at one time for medium-sized groups.
  • Virtual Reality Games and Experiences: Virtual reality is, quite possibly, better than actual reality. Want to join your new mates Buzz and Neil on a trip aboard Apollo 11? How about fighting your way through a zombie apocalypse? The possibilities are endless!
  • X-Golf (from $60pp): Let's face it, trying to get 16 people, through even 9 holes of golf is a bit of a mission. Add in rain, wind, John from accounting who wouldn't know a putter from a 3-wood and the group in before you who won't let you play through and you won't have enough time to also have lunch and something to drink. With x-golf, you can play the worlds best courses, with pro equipment with a beer in hand. Longest drive and closest to the pin competitions can be combined with a quick hit around the back 9 at Pebble Beach.

We are constantly adding more activities and activity providers to our products. If you have an activity you are keen to add to your tour. Please let us know and we can organise this for you.
