Ever wondered how beer is made? Challenge yourself to experience the delights of brewing, using state of the art brewing equipment to create your own liquid amber. At the end of the brewing process, you'll even get to take home 50 litres of your very own freshly brewed beer!
Your beer brewing experience is split into two separate days. The initial beer brewing day takes place and then you will return 2 - 3 weeks later to bottle your very own liquid gold!
The Brewing Day: (approximately 1.5 hours in duration)
You'll arrive at the brewery ready to get stuck into making your own beer, and while at the brewery you'll be treated to some complimentary beers. You'll also have the opportunity to go through a huge recipe book of over 220 beers (just like the ones you already know and love) and pick one you'd like to brew yourself.
After you've selected your beer, your friendly staff will take you through the brewing process, which includes measuring different quantities of malt extract, wheat, hops and dextrose – which are then added in stages to a boiling kettle of water. Ask as many questions as you like or just kick back and relax with a complimentary beer in hand. The liquid is then filtered and cooled to allow you to add the yeast – this kicks off the fermentation process. The brew is then sealed and placed in cold storage for 2-3 weeks. During this time you are invited to ask as many questions as you like regarding the process as well as sample some more complimentary beers.
The Bottling Day: (approximately 1 hour in duration and occurs approximately 2-3 weeks after the brewing day.)
Finally! The big day is here. You'll return to the brewery for bottling, where you will be supplied with approximately 140 sterilised bottles and enough caps to bottle your very own brew. On the day, you can continue to sample some more beers (or your own) while you bottle. Your beer is ready to consume on bottling day.
This experience takes place in Brisbane - approximately 5 minutes south-east of the CBD.
