We want you to have the best day!
Yes, we all enjoy our world famous wines. But when you ask an Aussie bloke about his favourite beverage, the answer is bound to feature cold amber fluid with bubbles. McLaren Vale has both, and Adelaide Brewery Tours are keen to get you tasting some famous and some boutique brews. So tell us about your faves, and Partybus Steve or Partybus Tarn will work with you to put together a truly memorable craft brewery tour.

Oh yes, one last hoorah for the “lucky” man. Beers, boobs and bollocks galore – a big send off for your mate in peril. Our experience shows that a schedule similar to the “Celebration” tour format above works well. Assuming we are starting prior to noon, then one venue of specific interest could feature first up (a craft brewery or distillery perhaps), followed by a hearty lunch and a pub crawl. Simple, flexible and fun. And sorry, no, we don’t include a pick-up from the holding cells the next morning. 😉
