We did this Boag's brewery tour on a cold rainy afternoon. Nicole was our guide she was awesome. Great tour of factory and information on the end to end brewing process. Finished off with beer tasting with cheeses. Cranking way to spend an afternoon.

There are stairs to the initial waiting (1 flight) Then a set of stairs to view where the beer is fermented The last set is where you first started to finish and try some of their range of beers
