A beer without a name What do you think of when you see the names Fat Tire, Mirror Pond, Delerium Tremens, Dead Guy, Death from Above, Pliny the Elder, Fat Yak, Tripel Karmeliet or Super Hornet? Ok, some of those are from the US and may not be as instantly recognisable as others, but can you immediately picture the beer? Do you know what style of beer it is? Does it matter to you that the brewery name isn’t mentioned alongside the name of the beer? Can you even name the brewer of Delerium Tremens* without Googling it? Why is this trend on a downward spiral? It’s time to revisit and update a ..read more

Why go on a brewery tour (instead of a pub crawl with your mates)? Recently we were informed in a post-tour review that our tours were “pricey”, which was a surprise to us because most feedback is that our offerings represent excellent value for money. Out of over 6,000 guests (!), there have been almost no instances of anyone finishing the day wishing there had been more to drink or a feeling that there weren’t enough options throughout the afternoon. We promise to keep you well hydrated. Our brewery tour experiences have a high rate of return guests because they know that they will get excel ..read more

Discrimination and Diversity in Craft Beer The Beer Industry Diversity Survey, conducted by Beer Agents For Change, is a startling reflection on the industry we know and love. Working in the craft beer industry is amazing. There are perks like having the occasional beer shouted when you run into brewers you know at a festival, or brewers lending equipment to new breweries just starting up, or even the broader community proudly supporting their local favourite by buying special release beers, merchandise, and so on. What’s not so amazing are the results of the Beer Industry Diversity Survey (se ..read more

Rainy day? We’ve got you covered! The time of year has arrived when torrential downpours are the norm. After a year or so of being stuck indoors for a higher amount of time than usual, everyone is ready to get out and explore their own back yard. We’re checking out new restaurants, supporting local businesses, meeting friends for coffee, and hitting the beach…. until it starts raining. And as the saying goes, when it rains, it pours – especially in Queensland. Whether you’re on the Gold Coast or in Brisbane, there are plenty of outdoor activities in which to take part, from surfing to visiting ..read more

The Original and Best Brewery Tours in Queensland

What do we mean when we market ourselves as the original and best brewery tour in SE Queensland? Registering our business in October, 2015, we had done our due diligence. We made sure we weren’t stepping on anyone’s toes and that no Brisbane brewery tours were already running. We wanted our business to be unique, to bring something new to the offerings in Brisbane and, eventually, the Gold Coast. We found nothing. No websites or Facebook pages indicating that we were too late, that our idea was a carbon copy of a successful business showcasing the growing craft beer scene around Southeast Quee ..read more

In the world of Australian craft beer, there were two large announcements in the second half of 2019, which sent tongues wagging and many independent craft beer supporters into meltdown. The first came in August, when it was announced that Asahi, a large Japanese beer company, bought 100% of Brisbane-based Green Beacon Brewing Company; the second followed a few months later when, in December, Balter Brewing announced their sale to CUB (Carlton United Brewers). As a company that visits both breweries regularly during our craft brewery tours in Brisbane and beer tours on the Gold Coast, initial ..read more

Unsure if the beer you’re drinking is craft? The number of independent, small craft breweries in Australia – also called micro breweries or boutique breweries – has been growing steadily in the past few years. An ever-changing ebb-and-flow of openings and closures can make it confusing to the general public if the beer they’re drinking is actually “craft”, or if it’s the craft arm of a larger company. Brewery Ownership in Australia – Click Here There is nothing wrong with these large craft arms, but the beer they produce may not be made in the traditional way, and the money earned will of ..read more
