“Pete was an excellent guide on the Prague Beer and Tapas tour. I enjoyed the evening tremendously and it gave me insight into the beer and food culture of Prague. We went to historical places and tried local brews as well as the food that goes with it - ending off with the famous Pilsner Urquell and pancakes for dessert!”

“Giovanne was/is an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide who made the tour so enjoyable. Not only that, but it is great fun mixing with other tourists with a similar passion for food and wine. Salut to the team. An UA tour will now be on a list of 'to do's' on each city trip.”

ITINERARY

Calling all beer fanatics! Looking for the perfect private beer tour in Melbourne? You got it. This thirst-quenching beer odyssey will take you through the best of the best on the Melbourne brew scene, from its largest brewery to those craft beers that only the true Melbourne locals know about. On top of all that, you’ll have a local guide all to yourself and you'll learn all about the history behind Melbourne’s favourite tipple, giving you all the local know-how to become the biggest Melbourne beer buff in town. 

Your Melbourne beer tour starts at the Southern Cross Station in Melbourne before we hit the train to one of the city's up-and-coming neighbourhoods, an area that is home to some of Melbourne’s best brewers. 

After an intro from your guide, you’ll head off to the first drinking den — no messing about on this tour, you dive right in! Whilst you sip on your first beer, you’ll learn about the rogue settlement of the city, and how the Melbourne beer scene came to be. From the city’s first pub to the outlandish colonial rules governing drinking in the southern capital, this Melbourne tour covers it all. 

We mix it up depending which neighbourhood we are in and where is best for the day you've booked. Venues range from breweries in industrial areas to classic pubs, bowling clubs and record bars — but the one thing they all have in common is a passion for the brew. Think wietbier, XPA, pilsners, porters and bocks — we are out in search of the best and for drinking them as close to the keg as we can get.

Along the way we'll dive into some good beer-drinking snacks to make sure the night is not all totally liquid.

By now on your private Melbourne beer tour, you will have been told all about Melbourne’s strict past and you will be able to witness the change and uprising of Melbourne’s unique laneway bar scene where you can try some microbrew while learning about the modern era of Melbourne’s relationship with beer. No better setting for that, we’d say! 

From here you can carry on your evening with some recommendations from our local guide, or if you’re in too much of a beer/food coma, your guide will also be able to point you in the direction of your accommodation or public transportation back into the city.

(If you’d prefer to travel as part of a regular group experience, please book our Beer Lovers Guide to Melbourne group tour.)

This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for two travellers.
