The Hinterland ExBeerience Tour kicks off at 11.00 in the morning, meaning that a Saturday/Sunday lie-in is still totally possible. Pick-ups are available from TAPS Mooloolaba and Sneaky Baron, Maroochydore.
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. 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!
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.
And last, but not least the third brewery on the Hinterland ExBeerience Tour is the recently opened Glass House Brewery/Restaurant in Mons Road, Forest Glen.
The Glass House Brewery firmly believe that craft beer brings people together. The location of the Glass House Brewery is in the heart of the Sunshine Coast - where the beer flows straight from the onsite brewery and can be enjoyed with great food and great company.
I can only imagine that at this stage of this totally exceptional tour, everyone will be relaxed and so ready for a 'Nanna/nano' 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, or TAPS Mooloolaba, where you can continue your craft beer experience.
Tour includes air-conditioned bus transport to all venues; expert beer tour guide; bottled water; all beer samples and lunch
Participants must be 18 years of age or older (phew, just made it)
Due to the busy nature of working breweries, Sunshine Coast Craft Beer Tours reserve the right to amend itineraries and venues without notice
Don't worry, there will still be plenty of beer and good times
A fantastic gift idea for that discerning person, who has everything. In other words, for him and for brew (you)!
NB The ExBeerience Tours appear to include Moffat Beach/Brouhaha/Macleod Brewery and Glass House Brewery. The writer is not aware of the exact sequencing of the itinerary for each tour, or if at any time, the tour might include a different brewery. Please check with the organisers when booking.
