Murray took his first brewrey tour at Sierra Nevada in California - home of the world's best craft beers and brewery tours. Our Brewery Tour is nowhere near as fancy, but it's still great and you will see (and taste!) our passion for brewing great Australian craft beer.
PUBLIC TOURS - BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL!
Public Brewery Tours run at 2.30pm WEDNESDAY - FRIDAYS
The tour begins with a brief history of Murray's Craft Brewing Co while strolling between the grape vines to the brewery. The raw ingredients (malt, hops, water, yeast) are explained and visitors are able to smell and taste the raw ingredients. The process of turning the raw ingredients into wort (unfermented beer) are explained while showing the required vessels in the Brewhouse. Fermentation of the wort into beer, and how this takes place, is explained and the fermentation vessels are viewed. Generally on tours beer is fermenting and visitors can see the CO2 by-product being expelled from the vessel. The conditioning process, filtration and carbonation of beer is explained. Visitors may also see beer being kegged, or bottled. The tour group is then taken back to the cellar door for tastings of the beer being made on site, with trained staff.
It's about 30 minutes of interesting and informative beer stuff. Then the best part is a beer tasting at the end.
Feel free to ask questions on the process, the history of the brewery, and property. Returning to the cellar door you will partake in a guided tasting paddle with our cellar door team.
Visitors are advised that they can wander around our extensive grounds.
