Wasn't expecting much as this was done on a whim with four friends but so worth it. The movie at beginning of the tour made me think it was all going to be scripted but you got shown so much more, and our tour guide (Jacob) knew the answer to everything no matter what we threw at him! Great beer... More

We went to the XXXX Brewery & Alehouse on the night of the last Reds game at Suncorp Stadium because we received an email promoting $10 steak meal for anybody going to the Reds games. And we were not disappointed. Normally $24, but if you showed your Reds membership or ticket only $10 for steak, handcut chips and salad -... More

Hi Ashley and Sue Glad to see that you enjoyed the tour, Sorry to see that the bottling line wasn't operating, unfortunately we can't control the operational timings behind the bottling and packaging schedule. Having said that, usually the period between Tuesday and Thursday is the best time for seeing the packaging line in operation, so if you'd like to... More

A fabulous tour with a very informative and knowledgeable tour guide however, there was nothing in operation as the Brewery does not bottle beer during winter as demand diminishes apparently. It was disappointing to hear about how fast beer can be bottled, labeled and packed yet not actually see it. We were issued with safety glasses and ear plugs but... More

Hi Sally Glad you enjoyed the tour, and the restaurant experience. Sorry to hear that bottling operations weren't running on the day, we do actually package through winter though, just obviously not that day. If you ever visit again, look for a day mid-week, for the best chance to see the packaging line in action. Thanks for the feedback, hope... More

I was taken here for my birthday and I don't even like XXXX beer! But by the end of the tour I had fallen in love with the iconic XXXX brand and history. You get to learn about the history of the beer and go behind the scenes of the factory. I would suggest booking a tour during the week... More

One of the best tours we've ever had, really informative and interesting, loads of history of beer and brewing up to how it's done today. Our enjoyment was helped no end by our tour guide Jacob who was knowledgeable and so enthusiastic, he obviously loves his job!

The tour itself, inclusive of the guide, history & brewing lessons were enjoyable. Our guide made a lot of beer jokes, was knowledgeable & enthusiastic. The tour was shorter than expected, with limited areas for photography, which is understandable. You taste 4 beers, which for $30 a head is steep, even if you get a $5 voucher for the shop... More

Unfortunately you aren't allowed to take any pictures on the tour and you also need to store any bags or loose items in the storage space provided. The tour starts with a safety drill and then progresses to an audio/visual show which is quite informative but also funny in parts. You progress around the brewery learning about the beer making...

Hi Whitley I'm sorry you had an average experience here, we pride ourselves on our tour quality, though we can't really control the operational side of the brewery, unfortunately. Regardless, we'd love to invite you back for a meal at half price, and if you are able to visit mid week, we will most likely be able to show you... More
