About
Starting on the coast our first stop will either be at Your Mates Brewing for a tasting paddle and a behind the scenes tour of the brewery to see how beer is made. We then make our way up to the beautiful town of Maleny to Brouhaha Brewery for a tasty two course lunch featuring local produce, and another tasting paddle of locally crafted beer. Styles here range from sours to saisons, pale ales to stouts, and a whole range of seasonal beers. We then make our way down the range, to Glass House Brewing who will greet us with a tasting paddle and a few stories.  Finally we drop you back to the Coast at your choice of either Sneaky Baron or TAPS Mooloolaba where you can continue your craft beer experience! A great way to spend the day !!

      Great day!
      My husband and I really enjoyed our beer tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable, accomodating and easy going. I’m not a beer drinker but everywhere we went I got to enjoy lots of drinks cider, gin, ginger beer and other beers that were different and unique. We spent a good amount of time at each pub and everything was relaxing and enjoyable.

      Coastal Hop Tour Superb!
      3 craft beer fans booked the Coastal Hop and it did not disappoint! What an outstanding day - our tour guide Thijmen had so much knowledge about brewing and a great relationship with the breweries we visited. We fitted so much in to the day it was excellent value for money overall with the beer tastings and lunch. Even though we had previously visited most of the breweries as locals, this was a completely different experience and I highly recommend you treat yourself to a tour!

      Highly Recommend the Coastal Hop
      We decided to do this tour when we had family come visit us on the Sunshine Coast, and we are so glad we did! We had a fantastic day and learned a lot more about some of our favourite local brews with John as our guide. Getting the opportunity to speak with the brewers themselves was really valuable and we loved stepping out of our comfort zones to test the beers recommended on the tour. Sunshine Brewery was a highlight, plus the food at Your Mates was great! We had a busy day but we loved that John didn’t rush us along - perfect Coastey vibe! 👌

      Great exbeerience!
      Had a private tour with Thimon as our guide. He is very passionate about all things to do with beer. Got picked up from home & went to Your Mates brewery, then to Brouhaha with a great food stop. Next to Glass House brewery then home. Tried some great beers & had a great day out- & all on our back door!!

      If you are a fan of craft beers this is a must-do tour! Josh was an amazing tour guide and very knowledgeable. He stayed on schedule and still allowed us to experience four local breweries. That was no easy feat! The customer service was top notch also! We really enjoyed the beer and the day!!

      A Beertastic Fun Day!
      What a wonderful way to taste the craft beer of our region! We visited such a variety of craft brewers that it was almost impossible to compare them. Each one has a niche product and none of them disappointed us on the tour.! Thanks, Josh for your patient, your professionalism and great way of sharing knowledge with us. We certainly will be back for another fun time on the next beer-magic-trip!

      Best ExBeerience on the Sunshine Coast
      What a great tour! Fun, informative and adventurous....Josh is extremely knowledgeable,super friendly and a great ambassador for all the breweries we visited! Great to meet some of the brewers and hear their stories as well as seeing the way they support their local farmers/foodies. Our lunch was awesome and the beers at the 3 breweries we visited were amazing...all had their own special stamp on them...some were favourites though...looking forward to our next tour and some Sunday Sessions! Highly recommended tour. Don’t hesitate to book.

      Tastes of the Sunshine Coast
      Recently went on the new Farm to Fork Tour from these guys. Loved it. Great to engage with the local producers. Also great to see how the Brouhaha boys really walk the walk when it comes to supporting local foodies! Josh was super friendly and knowledgeable. Beers and food at the end - SUPER TASTY. Highly recommend it.

    We went on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland Wine and Cheese Tour yesterday. The weather was perfect and we had a very enjoyable day travelling on our minibus to the various locations . Our host and driver Zoe was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the wine and beer making processes. Our favourite location was the Flame Hill Vineyard, where we had white and red wine tastings and a port and an accompanying cheese platter. While the other locations were quite good, we were a little disappointed with our lunch at Brouhaha Brewery which was a very bizarre selection of shared plates. Also, perhaps in the current Covid aware times, shared plates between strangers is not the way to go. On the whole though, we had a great day and would recommend this tour as an enjoyable way to spend the day

    Hi - thanks so much for your review of our Cheese & Wine Tour! So glad you enjoyed the day, along with the food & wine! Yes Flame Hill is often a favourite for its picturesque views, accompanied with wine & cheese! Our lunch features a chefs selection of starters that feature local produce from the region and are always popular with our guests. This is followed by a selection of gourmet pizzas that are shared amongst the table. Glad you enjoyed the day overall and we hope to see you back again on one of our other tours!

    We went on the Sunshine Coast Wine and Cheese tour yesterday. The weather was great and our guide Zoe was very good however we found that the people in the back of the bus couldnt hear what she was saying.
    Disappointing the Maleny cheese factory had no tastings due to covid but thought the operator Josh might have put together a small plater for us to sample. The barrel at Clouds was very disorganised. Our favourite was the Flame Hill Vineyard still a great day for the girls.

    Hi thanks for your review of our Cheese & Wine Tour and glad you enjoyed the day out with the girls! Flame Hill Vineyard is definitely a crowd favourite and we hope you enjoyed the local cheese platter we included at this venue for you. It was an incredibly busy day in the Hinterland so all the venues were doing their best to get service to customers in a timely fashion. Sorry to hear this affected your day out. Yes Covid has meant regular cheese tasting at Maleny cheese is not available, but as we like to continue to support local businesses we still make a stop here so people can buy cheese direct from the supplier, along with other local produce available. Thanks again for booking a tour with us!

    We did the Coastal Hop tour of 4 breweries. We were picked up and dropped back again from our accomodation which was excellent.
    The tour guy was very good at his job, balancing friendliness with space as the tour progressed.
    I do a bit of brewing myself, so I was really impressed by the knowledge of the tour guide.
    The breweries we went to were all very good with nice selections to choose from. Will definitely do this again.

    We had a fabulous time for our Christmas Party this year. Josh tailored a tour specific to our interests and personalised out itinerary. Robby, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, professional and patient - but more importantly he was entertaining, funny and friendly. Everyone throughly enjoyed the day and every stop we made. We would definitely book another tour and highly recommend them!

    Just had an awesome day out on the Hinterland Wine, Beer and Cheese Tour in Montville and Maleny. A belated birthday gift to my hubby. Matthew was our amazing driver and tour guide. 1st stop Flamehill Vineyard for wine tasting and a Maleny Cheese Platter. 2nd stop Maleny Cheese for a much needed stop to purchase delicious cheeses. 3rd stop Brouhaha Brewery for beer tasting and lunch. Final stop of the day was Clouds Winery for wine tasting. In all a fabulous day out with a local tour company show casing local business. I totally recommend as a must on the sunny coast. Thankyou Josh for awesome business. So love the pickup spot near us, so we don’t have to get behind a wheel and we can enjoy the whole day😀

    Ok…I cannot say ENOUGH good things about creative tours in general.
    They have been amazing, 12/10 from the very beginning to the very end.
    Staff have been exceptional from Deb helping me create a tailored tour that suited what I wanted and our budget (we had 17 people on our tour), to being prompt with responding to my questions, to the actual tour itself with our guide Jeremy who was amazing and the tour was fabulous and everyone who attended has raved about it.
    If you are on the fence about booking a personalised tour or joining one of their scheduled tours…don’t be - do it!!! You will not regret it at all. Creative tours are the best!!!!!!!

    I went on a tour with Sunshine Coast Craft Beer Tours yesterday. Great day in all respects. Great breweries, great beer, very interesting and informative commentary from the host/driver. Although I had previously visited each of the three microbreweries, it was still a very worthwhile trip. Would thoroughly recommend it, and will come again.

    We had a very engaging host/driver in Adam. He had previous experience in brewing and was able to describe and guide us through the process with the involvement of the brewers and discuss the taste. He had other life experiences so the conversation was varied and interesting. For those who were non beer drinkers there were limited other options - they just need to choose more quality in the limited selection.
    The venues were varied some with live music. Lunch option was limited to a selection of burgers - it would have been nice to have some other healthier and refreshing options. In all it was a full and enjoyable tour.

    Thanks so much for your review and glad to hear you enjoyed the tour! All our tour guides provide local knowledge on breweries, beer styles and some local stories as well. For those non-beer dirnks who wish to join us on a brewery tour, we do the best we can by providing ginger beer, cider or wine where available, although our main focus is on those who are joining us to enjoy the beer!

    We had a great time on our tour, we were so lucky that a large group had hired one of the buses to themselves so we received a private tour! Our guide was wonderful, he tailored the tour to our preferences and we had some nice beer and lovely wines. Lunch was included at a local brewery and we had a very nice ploughmans like lunch. All in all had a very nice time and would do this tour again.
