The Carlton & United Brewery tour gives you an insight into the history and tradition of beer brewing in Australia, the art of brewing, and a birds-eye view of the plant's state-of-the-art technology. Of course a brewery tour wouldn't be complete without some complimentary tastings of fresh, cold beer afterwards!
