Come and uncover Brisbane’s regional past and wet your whistle in Ipswich. You will visit a historic brewery after driving through the beautiful Mount Crosby.
What to Expect
After pick-up, you will begin the scenic drive through Mount Crosby, situated south west of the Brisbane CBD (Central Business District). Enjoy some local history commentary, and relax in the van during the 30 minute drive to 4 Hearts Brewing at The Pumpyard. 

Here you will get out and stretch your legs, then tour of the brewery. Located within the walls of an historic building and with glistening metallic tanks, you can reach out and touch. Wade Curtis (the owner) has trademarked the “stainless steel selfie”, so grab a picture to share with your friends!

After hearing about the brewing process, and the sampling of some delicious local drops, you will head to the nearby Prince Alfred Hotel – another of Ipswich’s historical gems! With 72 unique beers on tap and a rotating list that would make any beer lover feel like they’re in heaven, you can select your tasting paddle and chat about what makes the beers taste so different.

Lunch will be served at either of the venues listed above, but no matter where you eat, you'll  not be disappointed! All the food is fantastic, and served with a cold beer of your choice.

Once the tour has come to a close you will be dropped off at one of the partner pubs in Brisbane (unless you want to stay in Ipswich, in which case you will be shown where the train station is, and so you can keep drinking delicious beer to your hearts’ content.
