Thirsty Critters is South East Queensland's original and best brewery tour! We visit some of Australia's greatest breweries including Burleigh Brewing, Stone & Wood, MT Brewery, Byron Bay Brewery, Brisbane Brewhouse & Bacchus Brewing. All tours include tasting beers at each brewery and lunch. A guided tour by a brewer at one of the breweries is optional. Groups of 6 or more are preferred, however a private tour option is available for smaller groups.

Pete is an enthusiastic aficionado of all things Beer. Discovering the local microbreweries of South East Queensland with Thirsty Critters makes for a great day out with friends. On our tour we headed up to MTB, Burleigh Brewing & the Brewhouse back in Brisbane. Lunch at Mt Tamborine was included & the food was fabulous & filling. Beers on taste... More

Had an enjoyable day, Pete the host is friendly and welcoming, it was great to walk through a brewery and have a brewer show us around and demonstrate how to pour a beer with sediment. Would have been great to have a bit of interaction on bus / a bit of beer education before arriving at first brewery, would highly... More

A fantastic way to spend a day with mates. Toured some great breweries and distilleries, learnt a lot along the way, and was suitably hazy by the end. :-). Pete was a very relaxed and knowledgeable host. Will be doing it all again soon for sure!

I actually went along to this solo after hearing about it on ABC's morning show (I think Spencer Howser hosts it?). From actually having a great time meeting new people, Pete's experience was actually insightful and I learnt a lot throughout the day. Planning the next one with a group of friends soon - can't wait!

From the moment the bus arrived at my house and greeted by Pete, my friendly tour guide for the day, I knew I was in for an awesome day. It didn't take long before my tour group and I were chatting together as if we had known each other for years and created a brilliant vibe that lasted a whole... More

Being a Queenslander I like a beer, it's perfect for a hot day, a BBQ, an after work get together (you get the point). This curiousity/love only increased when I discovered mircrobrews! Which is what prompted me to go on a Thirsty Critters Tour. We have some amazing Microbreweries in South East Queensland and the only frustrating thing is that... More
