You know I have been so busy chasing wine farms on the Sunshine Coast, I didn't realise that we had more than one top-notch brewery in our midst. And, now with Father's Day just around the corner, the Hinterland ExBeerience Tour, proudly brought to you by Sunshine Coast Craft Beer Tours, sounds like a beery special tour to do.

The Hinterland ExBeerience Tour kicks off at 11.00 in the morning, meaning that a Sunday lie-in is still totally possible.

Sunshine Coast Craft Beer Tours love nothing more than taking you on a behind-the-scenes tour of the best local breweries and Craft Beer Bars on the Sunshine Coast, Hinterland and Noosa. Amber-liquid lovers will get to meet the brewers, learn how beer is made and get to sample the freshest local beer - what a splendid way to spend a day!

All the fun of the Hinterland ExBeerience Tour kicks off at Moffat Beach Brewing Co, officially the best independent small brewery in Australia. Moffat Beach Brewing Co received the bragging rights to the proud accomplishment of being the Champion Small Brewery at the Indies. Click here, to find out more about Moffat Beach Brewing Co's too-many-to-mention achievements.

Moffat Beach Brewing Co is located at 12 Seaview Terrace in Moffat Beach, close enough to the beach that you can hear and see the waves. Hinterland ExBeerience Tour participants will have the pleasure of sampling a tasting paddle of award-winning beers and a behind-the-scenes tour of this very special, tucked into the rear of a restaurant, brewery.

I love their slogan 'We can't brew it any closer to the taps!' - how awesomely fresh does that sound!

Onward and upward to the spectacular little Hinterland town of Maleny, where day-trippers will enjoy a visit to the Brouhaha Brewery in Coral Street. Guests will get to experience another tasting paddle of locally crafted beer as well as a scrumptious lunch at Brouhaha Brewery, in their very own on-site restaurant. The Brouhaha Brewery is beautifully designed within the restaurant. The chefs at the restaurant specialise in using locally sourced, fresh produce.

As beer is very much in the forefront of everybody's thought processes at Brouhaha Brewery, the menu has been designed to include beer in the recipes, to create a menu of meals, that pair perfectly with the selection of craft beers.

Styles of beer at Brouhaha Brewery range from sours to saisons, pale ales to stouts, plus an entire range of seasonal beers.

The final stop on the Hinterland Exbeerience Tour is at Macleod Brewing Company at the Big Barrel. Macleod Brewing Company is a family owned and operated craft brewery based in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland on the Landsborough-Maleny Road in Bald Knob. Beer lovers will get to sample Macleod Brewing's range of beers and check out the brewery too.

I can only imagine that at this stage of this totally exceptional tour, everyone will be relaxed and so ready for a 'Nanna' nap, but the Hinterland Exbeerience Tour is not quite done yet. Sunshine Coast Craft Beer Tours will drop you off at the Coast at your choice of either Sneaky Baron, Black Bunny Kitchen or TAPS Mooloolaba, where you can continue your craft beer experience.
