The XXX Brewery Tour was really informative, providing a video of the history of the brewery, visiting the Museum of beer bottles and the various TV advertisements over the years and it was great to walk around the place, not to mention a taster of some beers at the end. I really enjoyed the section where the bottles were being... More

We did the last tour on Friday and went out for supper and drinks afterwards. The tour is pretty interesting and you learn a lot about how beer is brewed, and you see a lot of the different areas of the plant. The only negative was that the bottling plant was shut down since it was Friday evening, and that... More

The XXXX Brewery Tour was informative, so interesting, interactive and ended with great beer - what more could you want? The tour itself was great, then we had a tasting session with our guide who answered all our questions, talked international beers, gave us great advice of other things to try and some great recommendations for our time in Brisbane....

The tour was informative and our guide was fun and friendly. There were a few complaining about the smell but if you want to tour a factory that produces beer, the smell is a given. I enjoyed the last part of the tour at the bar, too. I won't go back but I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a... More

Felt like you know each other for long time and coming to the place as a regular,not first timer as I was:) Didn't take the tour as I was quiet tired after the day,but will be back for it... More

The XXXX brewery was close to our hotel so easy to walk to. Good value for money included a short movie about the history of the brewery, a tour, followed by beer tasting. I am not a beer drinker but enjoyed the experience and learnt a lot. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The Ale house is a great place... More

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
