The Gold Coast has a new kid on the block running Brewery and Distillery Tours and they mean fun business!

Adam and Deb from Barefoot Downunder had to pivot their international tourism business after covid hit and borders in Australia shut. With the Gold Coast, Byron Bay, Northerns NSW and Brisbane craft beer and distillery industry really taking off like a rocket they figured what more do Aussies love more than getting together over a cold beer or gin and tonic?

It was a win-win for all and with their combined background in running tours, events and working in the food and beverage industry they wanted to bring visitors and locals together to experience all the amazing breweries and distilleries on the Gold Coast all the way down to Byron Bay in New South Wales.

Barefoot Downunder (like many of other businesses) had to come up with new ideas and ways to re-invent themselves in order to stay in business due to the Covid-19 pandemic and international borders shut and state border closures.

Moving from Sydney back up to where their home is on the Gold Coast, they had spent many of nights with ice cold craft beers and local gins and rums brainstorming about what their next move would be as far as running a new tour experience. With the Gold Coast and the craft beer scene really taking off and Aussies having to stay in their own country to travel, it’s a no brainer and Aussies love to drink so what better experience to run other than a new craft beer and distillery tour for the locals in the Gold Coast and Byron Bay area!

Deb had worked at a local brewery years back in her hometown of Tempe, Arizona where her first love of craft beer took off and Adam, well lets be honest, he loved his beer from an early age! With an open mind and mouth they have a love for all styles of beer including IPA’s, Sours, Stouts, Pale Ales, NEIPA’s, Lagers to Pilsners and new flarours and fruits beers.  They have put away their hiking boots for now and are putting on their beer goggles to share their love of good craft local beer with new friends up on the Gold Coast and Byron Bay.
