Everybody knows that flowers are romantic, but roses are so cliché and predictable aren’t they? For too long flowers such as hops and barley (the backbone of beer) have been overlooked when the subject of romance has been raised. It’s these couple of flowers that you will become quite intimate with on the Carlton Brewhouse Brewery Tour, as you smell, touch and taste your way though this delicious adventure.
Located at the Carlton and United Brewery in Abbotsford you and that special beer lover in your life will be treated to a complete tour of how beer is made from plant to pint, all narrated by a knowledgeable and energetic tour guide. The highlight of it all is arriving back at the Brewhouse for a hard-earned and truly unique tasting unpasteurised Carlton Draught. Any fresher and you would be dunking your head in one of the vats of beer.
After that it’s time to make some tough choices as you fill your tasting paddle with beers and cider from the Carlton United stable. If you aren’t sure what to choose there is one of Carlton’s master brewers on hand for a recommendation and a chat. Once you’ve made your choices, grab some wedges and lap up the sun on the outside deck. So cheers to the true romantic flowers of hops and barley, because what’s a rose really done for anyone anyway?
