Although not as prolific or as wide-ranging as the microbreweries in Victoria or New South Wales (mostly due to Queensland's stringent liquor laws), there are still 5 microbreweries within an hour or so of Brisbane, all of which are brewed to high standards and are worth a day trip for the traveling connoisseur . Thirsty Critters Tours is known for providing a quality service and includes stops at top-notch establishments like the Stone and Wood Brewery, Burleigh Brewing Company, and the MT Brewery. Contact the tour site for further details.
Note:The most famous brewery in Queensland is Castlemaine-Perkins, which produces the the ever-popular XXXX. Although no longer a microbrewery since its assimilation into powerhouse Lion-Nathan, it's still worth it to tour the brewery in Milton, a suburb of Brisbane. Check the included site for further info.
