XXXX is famous Queensland Beer, and the XXXX Brewery is where it’s made. Detailing the history of this iconic Australian brew, the site offers tours to give visitors the full, Queensland beer experience.
In 1877, two brothers came together with a dream to create the finest ale known to man. A lofty goal, but one that the XXXX Brewery believes it has accomplished. At over 135 years old, the XXXX Brewery has a lot of history within its walls. When operations first began, beer quality was measured in Xs—gaining a rating of four was highly coveted. In 1924, XXXX produced its first four-X beer, launching a brand.
The XXXX Brewery Tour covers the brewery’s 135-year history, including ingredients, brewing methods and how to pour the perfect glass. The tour concludes with a beer tasting session and the opportunity to purchase XXXX merchandise or take lunch in the onsite alehouse.
The XXXX Brewery is located in Milton, an easy walk from the town’s train station. A brewery tour lasts 90 minutes, and pricing runs from $30 for adults who don’t plan on drinking on the tour, $32 for adults with the tastings included and $18 for children.
