Matt Far­relly and Joslyn Erick­son be­lieve strongly in the power of beer. So much so that they launched their own brewery tour busi­ness, Hop On Brewery Tours, to spread the good word about the world of craft beer – and it’s been a liq­uid-gold suc­cess. With half- and full-day tours op­er­at­ing in Bris­bane and on the Gold Coast, the cou­ple take groups be­hind the scenes of some of the coolest brew­eries to meet the brew­ers, taste the beers and see the full brew­ing process in ac­tion. A favourite for birth­day par­ties and cor­po­rate events as well as tourists and lo­cals keen to ex­plore the craft beer scene, the busi­ness has grown con­sid­er­ably since open­ing al­most two years ago. Now, they of­fer sev­eral tours of vary­ing lengths and fo­cuses – from the ‘Coldie on the Goldie’ full-day tour to the ‘Quickie on the Coast’ fourhour tour, and even tours ven­tur­ing into the Tam­borine re­gion. Their main mes­sage: there re­ally is a beer for ev­ery­one. If you think oth­er­wise, you just haven’t found it yet. “If you only as­so­ci­ate beer with the big­ger, more com­mer­cial brew­eries, it’s likely that you haven’t been ex­posed to a beer that you re­ally love… yet,” says Matt.
