Our Gold Coast Brewery Tour will bring everyone together for a fun thirsty day of sipping, tasting, and visiting award-winning breweries on the Gold Coast and Northern NSW region. Jump on our super FUN and cool PARTY BUS as we take you around to 4 unique breweries in a day where you can sip on locally made craft beer while sitting back and relaxing with your mates. Our PARTY BUS has a kickin sound system, roaming mic for karaoke, LED party lights, tinted windows (what happens in the beer bus, stays in the beer bus 😉 ) and BYO’s are allowed on for drinks during the ride between venues.

Taste the explosion of flavours that each craft beer offers, you will get drinks included at each venue,  and your ‘beer pilot’ will give you insightful and fun info during the day but we promise that it won’t drag on too long so you can sit back and enjoy some great beers with your mates.

Expand your taste buds by sampling seasonal flavors with local ingredients that make incredible IPA’s, Red Ales, Lagers, Pale Ales, NEIPA’s, Porters, and taproom only releases. (Non-beer drinker? Some venues will offer other options including cider, seltzers or wine so get in touch if you have any q’s!)

Grab a roadie from the breweries if you like so you can drink in our party bus, enjoy a good yarn and chat with your FUN and friendly beer pilots as they safely move you around venue to venue.  Don’t miss this epic experience as there is never a dull moment when you are out with the Smooth Hoperator!
