Love beer AND the Sunshine Coast? What better way to experience both worlds than to go on a behind-the-scenes brewery tour of some of our favourite hotspots (with plenty of tasting, of course)!

Luckily for you (and us!) there are so many delicious brewery tours that travel the Sunshine Coast from Coast to Hinterland that you could spend a week trying them all.

Hinterland 'ExBEERience'

A beer-y special tour that takes you to three breweries in the stunning Sunshine Coast Hinterland. As well as a behind-the-scenes tour and tasting paddles at each stop, you will also be treated to lunch at Brouhaha Brewery and Restaurant in Maleny.

As beer is very much in the forefront of everybody's thought processes at Brouhaha, the menu has been designed to include beer in the recipes, to create a menu of meals, that pair perfectly with the selection of craft beers.

The day doesn’t have to end when the tour does! Sunshine Coast Craft Beer Tours will drop you off at the Coast at your choice of either Sneaky Baron, TAPS Mooloolaba, or Mercure Kawana Waters in Birtinya, where you can continue your craft beer experience.

Noosa Brewery Trail

Explore the best beers at the northern end of the Sunshine Coast on the Noosa Brewery Trail. This tour takes you to four breweries and one distillery so you'll get to experience all the flavours of Noosa.

Start off with a German-style beer at Boiling Pot before lunch and a tasting paddle of beer at the largest brewery on the Sunshine Coast, Heads of Noosa. The next stop is just outside Noosa at Terella Brewing. The tap beers here change regularly with the season so don’t be surprised to see a Hot Cross Bun flavour just in time for Easter to add to your tasting paddle.

Your last stop will be Land & Sea Brewery. This spot is also home to Noosa Heads Distillery, which means the choice is yours between a quenching beer-tasting paddle... or a flight of local gins and vodkas.

Coastal Hop

Is there anything better than a beer by the beach? This coastal hop tour starts at Moffat Beach Brewing Co – the only brewery on the coast with a view of the ocean! After seeing how the brews are made, make sure you enjoy the samples here while breathing in the salty air.

Next up is some time at Your Mates. Their brewery in Warana on the Sunshine Coast is a friendly, beery oasis in an industrial area – that feels like the pool room at your friend’s house. Larry (Australian pale ale) and Macca (lager) will be your best buddies on a sunny day.

Then, continue the indulgent theme with a stop at Maleny Chocolate Company and try some of the delicious hand-crafted chocolates. Be sure to also include a stop at Flame Hill Vineyard and Maleny Cheese on your list.

Finally, finish your day with a wine paddle at The Barrel at Clouds Vineyard.

Tasty Sunshine Coast

Starting with a must-have photo at the Big Pineapple, you'll head up the road to sample beautifully-made craft spirits at Sunshine & Sons. Along with Original Dry Gin and Vodka, small batch classics are also on the menu: including their Parfait Gin and Mr. Barista – the perfect base for an Espresso Martini.

Beer is next on the menu at Boiling Pot Brewing Co in Noosa with a tasting paddle and freshly made pizzas.

Staying in the Noosa region, you will get to try some gin made with pure local spring water at Pomona Distilling Co.

The final stop of the day is at Dingo Creek Vineyard – a boutique winery in Traveston that has been described as one of the prettiest wineries on the Sunshine Coast. Not to be outdone by the scenery, though, the wine tastes pretty good too!
