    XXXX Brewery Tour
    Stop: 90 minutes - Admission included
    In Queensland, XXXX means beer, but how did this iconic brew get its name? Find out on a fun and fascinating 90-minute tour of the XXXX brewery. Your guide greets you in the brewery’s visitor center. Enjoy an introduction to the history of beer making, and learn some of the brewery's techniques. After your introduction, walk throughout the central parts of this historic site. Put on safety gear and check out the machinery that brews, stores and bottles beer. Most weekdays, you can enter the Packaging Hall to marvel at the state-of-the-art packaging line. Watch thousands of beer bottles whiz past you on a distribution line; most breweries don't allow you to get this close! Once you have delved into the inner workings of the brewery, get instruction on how to pour the perfect glass of beer in the XXXX Restaurant and Bar. Taste four freshly made brews with a new appreciation for the work that went into making the tasty beverage. After about an hour and a half your tour wraps up. Feel free to kick back in the bar and enjoy XXXX's legendary beers or visit the gift shop before making your way to your next destination.

We attended the XXXX brewery tour and has a really good time. Oscar was highly knowledgeable and a great host. Would highly recommend any visitor to Brisbane attend a session. Loved the history of Beer and the pictures of Assyrians who invented beer.

We had a phenomenal time led around by Daniel as a small group of 4 Brits, he gave us an in depth, funny and engaging tour of the XXXX Brewery. It was much less of a museum, like other brewery’s we’d been to, such as Guinness’s, and was a surprisingly hands-on tour through the

This is obviously a well-oiled machine with many tours operating a day. The intro video was very clever, there was lots of interesting equipment to look at and the tour structure was very well thought out. Unfortunately, we had a rather disengaged tour guide that soured the
