10 years on and going strong

Update November 13th: We are currently taking private bookings from November 23rd. Public tours will be back in early 2021 (we have a wait list option on each tour page). Gift cards will be extended another year. We will be launching more tours from December 2020. Please note that restrictions on venues are still very heavy and options are more limited than usual in where we can visit and what we can do. Flexibility, patience and understanding are essential. Any questions contact us.

 

Right now, all over the world, friends, family and strangers are getting together to celebrate a marriage, toast a birthday, eat away a holiday or cheer their favourite sports team. We don't just get things done in the meeting room, on-site or visiting clients, but by breaking bread and entertaining. We make the best memories surrounded by old and new friends!


At Aussie Brewery Tours, we spend our lives visiting the best breweries, distilleries, cideries, wineries, food makers and creators we can find. When we aren't eating and drinking Melbourne's best activity providers are keeping us entertained. We specialise in all things boozy and fun and love it when there are plenty of drinks, amazing food, singing, laughing, dancing and good times. Life is here to be celebrated, let's go...

We have always been proud of the service we provide, the honest and transparent way we interact with our customers, employees and venue partners and the safety of our products. During the outbreak and lockdown, we have been flexible with bookings and refunded in full. We will keep in contact throughout your booking process, right up to your event, and will continue to be flexible with COVID-19 interruptions.

Booking direct with us (rather than online third-parties) we believe gets you a better value product. We will action your questions and requests because we do it better than the expensive and slow middle-man.

Long Live Aussie Brewery Tours

My name is Scott and in 2007, on a trip home to Australia, I found a few breweries in the Yarra Valley and Mornington that I wanted to visit. The problem was, there was nobody back then to take me. Fast forward 3 years and I returned home to Australia and decided that if beer tourism wasn’t yet a thing, I should create it.

We have now toured with over 15,000 guests, maintain a 5-star rating, have kept our group-sizes small, have the best guides, jam-pack each tour with as much food and drink as we can and are mates with the best venues and creators in Australia. It has been a lot of fun creating and operating one of Australia’s top-rated and recognised tour companies. 

Long live Aussie Brewery Tours!

The Best Venue Partners

We have over 55 different venue and activity partners who are the backbone of our business. They proudly pour their heart and soul into making the products, experiences and venues that enrich our celebrations and social occasions. 

Our day starts when we pickup our guests, who are already happy and in a good mood, anticipating the fun to come. We start with mega-tastings, drinking everything we can find, and as the tour rolls on everyone gets happier and happier – what a way to live your life, surrounded by happy people! 

Breweries, cideries and distilleries. Cocktail bars and wineries. Clay target shooting, making your own beer and bubble soccer. No matter where your tour takes you, our partners will treat you like a treasured old friend, the VIP of the party.

All-Inclusive

We are very proud of the value we pack into our tours. Tastings are huge and include all the single batch and specialty drinks we can find. We keep our public tours small, only visit the best venues, and the food is as plentiful as it is tasty.

We pay our guides well, compensate our venue partners for their hard work and ensure our licences, insurances and vehicles are all up-to-date. Each tour includes back of house access, free water and extra drinks and nibbles.

If you book directly with us, or with one of our preferred agents, we also include free hotel pickups.

You can leave your wallet at home, we take care of everything.

Tour across Australia & New Zealand

Aussie Brewery Tours operate out of Melbourne, Australia, and run tours around Urban Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula (75 minutes) and the Yarra Valley (60 minutes) with specialty tours out to Geelong, the Great Ocean Road and Ballarat.

Throughout the years we have developed relationships with like-minded tour operators around Australia and New Zealand. We hang out at beer festivals, discuss product ideas, attend conferences together and you can now book their tours from our website. 

Aussie Brewery Tours is now all over Aussie – oh, and New Zealand!

Public & Private Tours

Aussie Brewery Tours operate daily, public, small group and special tours that take in festivals and events throughout the year. Our customers come from all over Australia and the world, sometimes with nothing more in common than the desire to get involved and have an exceptional time. They leave our tours with fond (and fuzzy) memories and lifelong friends.

Our private tours are 100% custom, utilising our network of over 75 venue and activity providers to create a custom event matched to your specifications. This could be an intimate, two-person tour to celebrate a special anniversary or a 100+ person corporate event, complete with food, drinks and entertainment. 

So whether we met you at your hotel for a public tour or at your work or house for a private tour, Aussie Brewery Tours has you covered. 

About us

Aussie Brewery Tours specialise in craft beer, artisan spirits, cider by winemakers and all manner of boozy products in between. We are about great food, hearty meals and anything homemade made with love.

We recommend you jump in headfirst and get involved, but we are not here to dictate the day or decide what you should eat or drink. Don’t like beer, grab yourself a wine. Have a dietary requirement, we will make sure you are well fed – we cater for vegetarians, vegans, allergies, gluten-free, certified awesome and COVID intolerant people.

Time is relative so we leave a venue when there are more empty glasses than full glasses. Pilsners to pale ales, apple and pear champagne ciders, vodka, whisky, rum and gin, fruit wines, grape wines, porters and stouts who knows what we will find and drink along the way? Our expert guides entertain you with a unique take on alcohol history and culture whilst giving you the VIP treatment.

Since 2010 our public tours have left daily from Melbourne. We can also customise a tour for your next corporate event, bucks or hens party, birthday or sporting/social club event. If you don’t have time for a full day tour or have a special requirement, check out our half-day and specialty tours or contact us for something more custom.
