Murray's first was 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.
Daily Public Tours
Public Brewery Tours run at 2.15pm daily.
The tour begins with a brief history of Murray's Craft Brewing Co while strolling between the hop and 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 20 minutes of interesting and informative beer stuff. Then the best part is a beer tasting at the end.
If you arrive early or late, or are unable to attend the 2.15pm public tour, just ask our staff who will direct you through the vines to the brewery entrance. From here you will see our trained and experienced brewing staff performing the tasks as per the brewing process chart on display. Feel free to ask question on the process, the history of the brewery, and property. Returning to the cellar door you can partake in a guided tasting with our cellar door team.
Visitors are advised that they can wander around our extensive grounds and up to the brewery to take a look at the brewing equipment and process chart of how beer is made - anytime.
NB: Suitable footwear must be worn. Open toe shoes or thongs will not be allowed.
