THE BEST TOUR-whether you’re a beer drinker or not!
Dana_S, Jul 2022
Had THE BEST TIME and I’m not a beer drinker! The tour was informative, fun and definitely tasty! Lewis knows beer and being a local he knows Queenstown and it’s surrounds too. He showed us the sights while guiding us through the local brews! I even found my two new favourite drinks while in Queenstown!
Response from Host, Jul 2022

The best tour guide ever.
Jenny_H, Dec 2020
Our guide was wonderful with lots of local knowledge, a fine sense of humour and a pleasure to be with. We loved Cargo brewery with its history and great food. Beer was interesting but pleasant.
Response from Host, Feb 2021
Cheers Jenny. The building sure is beautiful. Glad you had a fun time and you are welcome back any time
Great Day Visiting Queenstown's Best Breweries.
Ken S, Dec 2019
Wasn't sure what to expect. By day's end my wife and I had spent a wonderful day being escorted to 3 of the best breweries Queenstown had to offer. As we were the only booked guests on the day, our guide and business owner Lewis treated us to a very personal and exclusive tour that included lunch and some of the best craft beers I've ever tasted. We were so impressed we booked his services the following day to take us on a local Gin distillery tour and some other inclusions only a local guide operator would have knowledge of. All in all a GREAT day and one that should be included on any list of must-do activities while staying in Queenstown.
