THE VERY BEST CRAFT BEER BREWERIES & GIN DISTILLERIES ON ONE OF OUR FAMOUS FLAVOUR EXPERIENCES

Smooth Hoperator is the #1 choice for a fun, informative, and relaxing brewery and distillery tour on the Gold Coast, Northern NSW, and Byron Bay region. Our handcrafted experiences connect locals and visitors with the community and neighborhood breweries and distilleries to drink, taste, and sip on their creations of craft beers and bespoke craft spirits.

Visit unique breweries and distilleries which can include Black Hops, Balter, Lost Palms, Burleigh Brewing, Precinct, Earth Beer, Stone & Wood Seven Mile Wandana, Husk, Wildflower, Granddad Jacks, Cape Byron and Lord Byron to see where the magic happens and most importantly, experience the explosions of flavors that our collaborators have passionately created. Our brewery tours also cater to non-beer drinkers, with the option of cider or wine at most venues.

Our beer bus is packed with fun surprises and has one of the best sound systems, LED party lighting, and a roaming mic for karaoke between the drive to venues. ย Our fun and friendly ‘beer pilots’ will ensure you have the best day out and pick up from locations across the Gold Coast, Northern NSW, and Byron Bay.

When you join us, you are not just joining an experience, you are getting a refreshing guarantee of authentic locals inside knowledge and experience. This is our passion, beer is our flavor and fun is our game, you mix this together and you’ve got one Smooth Hoperator.
