“Great time at XXXX!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Make sure to call it "four ex" so you don't sound like a complete idiot like we did! My family of four (2 beer drinkers and 2 wine drinkers) took the tour and really enjoyed learning about beer and the brewery, and seeing everything come together. We did this at a slow time, a few days before Christmas, and it was both relaxed and informative. As a wine drinker, I was pleasantly surprised that they had wine we could drink instead of beer at the end, and my brother and dad really liked the beers they sampled and proceeded to order them at restaurants during the rest of our stay in Brisbane. Make sure to wear close toed shoes or they will give them some to wear! Enjoy :)

“XXXX get's two thumbs up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

This tour was a gift from my wife, I wen't with my Father In Law. We didn't take closed in shoes which were required for the tour however the friendly staff helped out with some loner shoes.The tour was well set out with a history of Beer and also a history of XXXX which started the tour of the Factory and brewing process from start to finish. The tasting at the end just topped off a great arvo out.

“Fascinating overview of beer and the history of Oz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Very interesting tour and the opportunity to try four of the brewery's specialities. Would recommend it even to the non-beer lover. Amazing facility and great history.

“Worth the trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

This was a good way to pass an hour or so - the tour was surprisingly interesting (I was pretty much going for the beer at the end). Plenty of interesting history at the Brewery and the beer tasting at the end was great fun. They've always got something interesting and unique on tap apparently (when we went they had dusted-off an old recipe and made a small batch for consumption at the Brewery only). It's also nice and close to the Park Lane if you fancy a bit to eat at some of the trendier places. We caught a lift down to the Toowoong Bowls Club afterwards for barefoot bowls. Altogether a great day!

“educational & tasty !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

This was my second time on the XXXX brewery tour after a recent Christmas party function, so we decided to take along a family member visiting from interstate. The XXXX brewery is within easy walking distance of the Milton train station ( which is a plus if you intend taking advantage of the free beers at the end of the tour ) Our guide was friendly and pleasant and easy to understand . One tip in particular for the ladies is to make sure you have covered in flat sole shoes but otherwise an enjoyable and informative way to spend a couple of hours in the city . We also enjoyed a light lunch at XXXX Ale house which is also highly recommended
