We enjoyed this, our host had already met with some of the participants so the Aussie Jokes/Bashing was well called for, our Aussie guests took it well. It was great to see how the brewing process took place years ago, the copper is incredible and now using stainless, still using the waters from the ground to produce the product, the... More

My partner and I had a great time touring the brewery. So interesting seeing the processes that go into making beer. We even got to pour our own beers and have tastings at the end. Great time.

My wife and I did this tour and we really enjoyed it. It was well guided with enough information, history and humour mixed in. It was good to have a few beers at the end as well. I also though the prices in the gift shop were very reasonable. In fact the merchandise here is cheaper than in the tourist... More

A great tour, with a fun guide who reminded me of Willy Wonka. They get the balance right between the history of the beer and the tasting of the beer. You get to taste 6 beers at the end. Would recommend.

This tour is well worth doing. It's interesting going from the old ways of how they used to do things to the new ways. Our guide has worked there a long time so was very knowledgeable about how everything worked and how everything was done. You also get to try a few beers at the end and even pour one... More

We did the brewery tour and it was fantastic! Our tour guide John knew his stuff and made the tour very entertaining, there were tastings included in the tour and even I who don't drink beer was inspired enough to try it!

We booked this tour online, arrived a few minutes early and were happy to start, exactly on time. Our guide was fantastic and was very informative. The history of the brewery is very interesting, too.
