This brewery tour will pick you up from your Gold Coast location and visit two out of four local breweries. The first stop is to Lumber Punks in Miami for a tutorial on axe-throwing. The first bulls-eye gets bragging rights for the day! During a 90-minute session, you'll be taught everything you need to know to aim straight and throw accurately.
Throwing axes is thirsty work. After your session, the tour wanders the few hundred metres (or drive, most likely) to Lost Palms Brewing. Here you'll discover a unique, chilled-out space filled with bright colours and thirst-quenching beers. Comfy couches mean you can sit back and sip your brews in comfort. The tour will go through all important beer info here, including ingredients and history.
The next stop is lunch! Ducking over to Bine Craft Beer Bar, you can choose from an array of lunch options, each paired with a paddle from a rotating tap selection. After lunch, the tour heads to a residential neighbourhood to check out Black Hops. Here you have the chance to explore the brewery and taste more fresh brews. If the head brewer Michael "Govs" McGovern is around, he'll answer questions you may have and tell the stories behind each of the beers on offer.
Alternatively, the tour may also visit the original and iconic Gold Coast brewery, Burleigh Brewing, where you'll walk through the brewery and learn about their history as the longest-operating brewery on the Gold Coast. Taste their core range (plus more seasonal release beers) and marvel at the size of their brewery. The tour may decide to finish the day at the so-hot-it's-cool Balter where the beach meets beer. Award-winning brewer Scotty Hargreave creates delicious beers to keep you refreshed. You'll have a tasting paddle here.
The tour visits TWO of these FOUR breweries on the Gold Coast, along with a lunch stop. Throughout the day, the tour keeps you well-fed and full of delicious beer, with plenty of samples accompanied by tasting notes and witty commentary. The brewers are happy to show you the ropes, help you understand the brewing process and answer any questions you may have.
Don't forget to bring a photo ID with you. All your friends may know you're of age, but it's only the first time we've met, and we'd hate for you to get turned away from any of the breweries by looking too young to appreciate good brews.
