If you're a bit short on time but want to sample some of the incredible beer coming from the Gold Coast, this brewery tour only requires 3.5 hours to blow your mind! From Mick Fanning’s mega-million brewery on the southern end of the Gold Coast to Miami’s hidden gem with a funky vibe, the Gold Coast has it all. Pale ales to porters, this quick dash around the Glitter Strip will get you tasting award-winning beers at venues you’ll be keen to get back to.
The tour makes stops at 3 incredible venues, which will vary on the day with availability. However, it'll include a combination of Lost Palms, Precinct Brewing, Black Hops, Burleigh Brewing Co, or Balter Brewing. At each, you'll enjoy delicious tasters of the beers as well as snacks and witty commentary.
The tour starts with an introduction to beer’s main ingredients and a few tasters to experience the unique flavours in each beer and understand the differences in what you’re drinking, whether it’s a lager or a stout. Once you've had a chat about the history of beer and a solid basic understanding of how everything fits together, you'll go behind the scenes to see where the action takes place.
With fresh and funky Miami vibes, Lost Palms is all about embracing the Gold Coast lifestyle! Take some time to kick back and relax, check out the brewing equipment and try some of their delicious, cold beers.
Gold Coast’s first brewpub, Precinct Brewing, offers guests a range of beer styles fresh from the tank, as well as delicious pizzas and – most evenings – live music that invites you to kick back and chill out.
The crew at Black Hops Brewing have created a welcoming venue with a tasting room perfectly structured to sample their range of delicious, award-winning beers. Speak to the brewers, learn about the brewing process and see how everything functions by getting up close and personal.
Burleigh Brewing is a pioneer in bringing craft beer to the masses, with the longest-running craft brewery in Queensland. Their tantalising tasting paddles filled with well-known beers and special releases will keep you well hydrated – and you might even be tempted to take some home with you!

After taking out the top spot in Australian beer’s biggest popularity contest, Balter Brewing always offers guests something new and different – as well as their tried and true favourites.
