The tour guide was funny and informative. Also got a few free drinks along with the ticket. Food at the BBQ was great and the bar had good atmosphere

This was an afternoon well spent, our guide was superb and his knowledge of the factory was second to none, and provided excellent information about the history of the factory as well as what each room was and what happens in this room. The beers that were included in the tour made it even more value for money and they... More

I went to the XXXX Brewery in January 2014. I found the tour and the bar enjoyable. The tour was well presented and the most of the staff were very friendly. However, one of the security guards starting talking to my boyfriend and myself while we were waiting for the tour to start. I don't know how he got on... More

The pre recorded story telling was quirky but good. Nothing much was happening to view during the tour. The Guide was a 'nice' guy but very very average in knowledge and presentation. Wasn't inspired to start drinking XXXX. Being non xxxx drinkers, we considered it very pricey for a tour and a soft drink.

When we found the reception , we were told there was a fire drill and... More

I'm not a beer lover, but I booked the tickets for my other half as he suffered my shopping trips. We arrived on time and taken care of immediately with our bags put in the safe. The tour was pleasant and interesting learning new facts about the beer. I was a little disappointed that we had to drink our two... More

We also booked the tour under the impression that we would have... More

The fire drill is compulsory for the safety of team members and guests and we cannot determine the exact day this will occur. We were only kept outside dor 10 mins, other guests were also evacuated but understood the importance of such a safety drill. If you... More

The tour was informative and interesting. A big scale brewery is certainly a different operation to the home brew I do at home and the smaller brewery tours I enjoyed in Tasmania. The guide had a dry sense of humour which kept everyone entertained. I yearned for a bit more brew talk but I am a beer nerd. I suggest... More
