Behind the Barrel was created to bring people together to enjoy a day of drinking in the Byron area and to learn about the processes of production from the masters themselves. You make the most of the day by visiting three local breweries and a distillery. The tour includes transportation so you can drink safely and comfortably without worrying about how you will get home. All tastings at each brewery and distillery are included so you won’t get thirsty ;p. You will also get lunch at one of the breweries and a sweet tour of the coast and some of the luscious hinterland that surrounds Byron. This little slice of paradise is the perfect place for beer culture to thrive. Not only does it attract hundreds of thousands of travellers, many of whom are international, but the land itself provides the perfect backdrop to enjoy a crisp beer, whether it’s at the beach or exploring the hinterland. Note: If you aren’t a beer drinker there are plenty of other options at the breweries. If you’d prefer cider, spirits etc we can accomodate. Although I do guarantee I’ll find you a beer you’ll like!
Being in the tourism industry for many years from central Australia to up and down the east coast to finally settling in Byron Bay. Over many years I had discovered the craft beer scene and thought I could show the rest of the world how amazing the Byron bay craft beer and distillery scene has become. With myself and the brewers and distillers we will show you how the magic is made. Find out how they all came about while sampling a lot of their amazing beers and spirits they produce. With my knowledge of Byron bay and surrounds we also explore the hinterland and coastline
