The Yarra Valley might be world famous for its wineries but it is also home to some of Australia's best breweries (and cideries). Come with Aussie Brewery Tours and explore this beautiful part of the state as you sample great beer and sumptuous food.
First stop is White Rabbit Brewery where bartender Julian will entertain you as you kick off the day with a few award winning ales.
Next stop is Hargreaves Hill Brewery for lunch. Selecting your meal from the sumptuous menu is almost as hard as deciding what beer to have with it. They will make your decision a little easier by talking you through their beers, with your own tasting paddle.
After lunch you visit Coldstream Brewery. Here you will tour the brewery floor, learning first hand how the beer (and cider) is made. With all that learning you'll no doubt be thirsty, but don't worry, more tasting paddles and beers are on offer as you spend the afternoon in this charming little pub.
With expert guides entertaining you throughout the day this is sure to be a day you'll never forget.

Australia has long prided itself on being a beer-drinking nation. Melbourne's first mayor was a prominent brewer, Henry Lawson wrote of his love of the amber nectar and former prime minister Bob Hawke held a world beer drinking record. Australia's favourite pastimes - the beach, the barbecue, the pub, sport and hanging out with mates - just wouldn't be the same without beer.
An Aussie Brewery Tour is not just about drinking beer. Combining great food, comfortable transport, music and games with a knowledgeable guide dedicated to the history of the local region and beer and brewing, they guarantee guests will have the best experience possible.
Aussie Brewery Tours are currently running from the CBD every Wednesday and Friday, along with regular weekend tours. Visit two regions, the Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula, with both tours including three breweries, lunch, tasting paddles, brewery floor tours and of course beer!
Aussie Brewery Tours are always fun, friendly and relaxed as they believe that's the only way to enjoy a beer.
