Choose your pick-up spot and we’ll collect you and your friends in our comfortable COVID-safe air-conditioned minibus. We’ll drive you in luxury through the spectacular scenery of the Sunshine Coast to the first of three amazing Noosa breweries, the award-winning Land & Sea Brewery, Noosa’s original craft brewery.
Here we get to go behind the scenes with a brewery and distillery tour (Saturday ONLY), to learn how their award-winning brews are made, plus a few tastings of the house beers and gin to work up an appetite, your next stop is a filling-and-fabulous lunch and beer tasting in the Taproom at the Heads of Noosa Brewery.
You’ll finish your tour on a high at Boiling Pot Brewing Co, a young brewing company with a cool, funky-urban warehouse aesthetic before we drive you to our final stop for the day Laguna Lookout, and one last look over Noosa before we take you back in safety and style to your chosen drop-off point.
The tour starts at your chosen pick-up point around our beautiful Sunshine Coast. Our experienced driver will drive you safely to your first stop, while you just relax on the short drive. Sit back, relax and gaze out the window at the fascinating Sunshine Coast landscapes and townscapes, or chat with your friends. Mid-morning you’ll be parking up at the first of our three awesome breweries, Land and Sea Brewery
Land and Sea Brewery is off the beaten track and it has a relaxed, informal vibe and urban decor!. It also has a secret – it’s not just about the beer as it distils craft gin, too.
With a core range of six specialist craft beers, you’ll find something you really really like. Choose the refreshing Socializer for a heady mix of lychee, white wine and bubblegum (yep, this is still beer), or go Germanic with The Kolsch’s biscuity flavour and dry finish. And there are four other hand-brewed beers to sample, too.
Whilst here we will explore behind the scenes on a guided tour (Saturday ONLY) of both the brewery and distillery, learning what goes into making award-winning brews, and why, not all gins are equal. Coupled with a heady mix of samples, it really is a great way to whet your appetite for what’s ahead and pay tribute to the craftsmanship behind the brands.
After you’ve sampled the delights of Land and Sea, you’ll have worked up an appetite, which is just as well as next you’re heading off to our next Sunshine Coast beer stop at the family-owned Heads of Noosa Brewery for an amazing lunch and another super sample of locally crafted beer.
Heads of Noosa
The award-winning Heads of Noosa Brewery takes its name from the magnificent rocky headlands nearby, which face the might and drama of the Pacific Ocean proudly. The Heads of the Noosa team are passionate about lager and you’ll be amazed at their own take on this very difficult brew to nail down. From an oh-so-delicate Japanese-style lager to the full-flavoured Summer Dusk or the malty Bock (and more), you’ll find the range fascinating and intriguing.
Oh, and did we mention lunch? Get comfy in the Taproom, from where you can watch some heavy brewing action in the brewery beyond, and enjoy the chef’s recommendation, prepared freshly in the onsite kitchen. Carnivores and veggos alike are catered for brilliantly.
This is a chilled-out tour, so we don’t prise you from your lunch and throw you into the minibus for your next stop. There’s plenty of time to rest and digest, as well as try a few more samples of the Heads of Noosa specialist lagers. But we’ll get back on the road in time for your third and final brewery Boiling Pot Brewing Company.
Boiling Pot is Noosa’s newest Brewery, barely open a couple of years but making a big name for itself, and is anything but traditional. Housed in a refurbished urban-chic warehouse with seating at the front and brewing at the back, it’s designed to give every visitor a great experience. Sit yourself down in the sunny courtyard or in the taproom to sample Boiling Pot’s selection of golden brews. Choose from spicy Saisons to hoppy IPAs, a Rye XPA, and, our favourite, Bat Migration, a German-style Schwarzbier.
Now with a different outlook from the brews you have sampled along the way, it’s time for the final stop at Laguna Lookout.
Amid towering eucalyptus forest, on the edge of Noosa Heads, Laguna Lookout provides strikingly beautiful views along the Noosa River, Noosa Main Beach and Laguna Bay. Westward to the volcanic plugs that form part of the hinterland, this lookout is a popular spot, particularly at sunset when the sun dips behind the hills filling the sky with its fiery glow.
After you’ve totally chilled out, it’s time to head back to your chosen drop-off point for later afternoon.
