Get acquainted with bohemian beers, bespoke microbrews and salacious sandwiches on this carb-unfriendly Melbourne walking (or is that stumbling?) tour.


Calling all beer fanatics! Looking for the perfect 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 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 in Melbourne’s up-and-coming neighbourhood of the Smith Street Precinct. Nestled on the border of trendy neighbourhoods Fitzroy and Collingwood, this area is home to some of Melbourne’s best brewers. 

After an intro from your guide, you’ll head off to the first pub – 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. 

Your next stop will be a bar specialising in only Aussie-made beers and spirits. This will be the setting of even more local tales about Melbourne’s past, including alcohol bans at football matches and the famous six o’clock swill. Your beer-loving local guide will fill you in on anecdotes like these throughout the tour, so you can really get in touch with Melbourne’s rich history with this beloved drink. 

Time to lighten up a bit and head to a venue that is on the precipice of the fast-growing microbrewing movement. Drink beer in full view of the beer makers. This last bar doesn’t just make beer, it also makes gin, coffee and cheese. By now on your Melbourne beer tour, you will have been told all about Melbourne’s strict past, but here you will be able to witness the change and uprising of Melbourne’s unique laneway bar scene. Here 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.
