For $32 dollars you get an amazing tour,a taste test at the end and 2 free scooners as well,plus a free hat. Really good value for money. The tour guide made the tour that bit even... More

If you're touring around Oz, you've got to visit a beer factory. The XXXX (four ex) is a fine place to visit. Its a major factory, not a micro brewery. It's a huge factory and the tours are well organized, though I thought it dragged on a bit too long. The best part is the end when you get to... More

Our tour was only 5 people and we could take our time. The tour guide (Nick) explained the process in an easily understandable way. The tasting in the end and the juice itself with a beer for lunch were the perfect finish to a nice Tuesday morning tour.

The tour guide Nick was a great guy, and he took his time to explain things to us who don't speak English very well. Overall a great and interesting tour

This tour ticks all the regular boxes- a look around, an explanation of hops, but doesn't have the razzle dazzle of international tours like the Heineken factory. It does include the obligatory beers at the end and the in-house pub is a great setting for an informal lunch or dinner. Even if your tour ticket doesn't include it, grab a... More

This was a Christmas present we were given. We then had four adult members of our family plus two young children come along too. There was obviously some problems with the video presentation and when we got to the production line there wasn't anything to see. A great disappointment for especially the younger members of the group. It didn't even... More

Interesting tour that covered beer history and the complete brewing, bottling and packaging processes. The tour took 90 minutes and ended with tasting and two complementary beers. We also stayed afterwards and have a very nice lunch at the ale house. Good value.

You get a great tour and learn all about the start up of xxxx gold beer. It was super interesting. At the end you get tri free beers of your choice. My partner and I also had food which was relatively inexpensive. Great tour, people and we had a blast.

We recently toured the brewery on a Saturday. The tour is informative and reasonable value for what is included. Personally I found some parts a little longer than they needed to be which made it drag on a little. The beer does taste better from the brewery and its a must do experience to try the beer from a wooden... More

Wow I was so impressed with this tour having visited other brewery tours around the world! The tour guide was excellent and informative with a great sense of humour. You will learn about the impact that the founders of the brewery and subsequent decisions made along the way, have had on Queensland and Australia. After visiting through the production areas,...
