  • We were given a Red Balloon Tour and Meal for Christmas and we put it in the 'to do one day ' basket. Given we had been to a number of micro and craft breweries, this was a bit of a 'how big are CUB, we can bottle 900 bottles per minute and supply everyone in Australia a litre of beer every 12 days...' However, the tour was interesting given the young fella was fairly new at the tour guide gig. His knowledge was a basic level but informative enough for most people. A paddle of 6 beers and a superb lunch to follow with the band from the 60s Sunday Session ensemble providing atmosphere..we really did enjoy our Red Balloon experience. We thoroughly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a beer.
  • Carlton Brewhouse is one of the best venues we’ve had the pleasure of working with in Melbourne's Inner East for Engagements, Birthdays and Sporting Functions. Each time we’ve performed at Carlton Brewhouse, you can see the care and attention to detail focused towards the client and their guests. The venue decor is beautiful, the staff are so professional and friendly, and the food is to die for! Special mention must be made to Deb & Jessica for being two of the loveliest event managers we've ever had the pleasure of dealing with. When we have a gig booked at Carlton Brewhouse our entertainment team know that it’s going to be a 10/10! Nathan | General Manager Melbourne Entertainment Co.
  • They don't show everything of the building. Marketing team needs to work on their marketing ways. They advertise on website as $29 each adult and while scoopon as $10 each adult and travel magazine it says one free entry on one ticket and just a week ago, they ran an offer buy three tickets and bring on friend for free. Its bit silly as everyone don't feel they have got a good deal. I got tickets for $29 each for three people which was a big rip off. They show you around only two building out of many and they say it in the first place. Not wheelchair friendly. Only good thing is they talk about a lot of history of the company. If you are paying $10 and love beer than its a good place to check out. Otherwise don't waste your time.
  • Was exciting to see how it all worked. We didn't see bottling as it isn't opened on the weekends. Best to go really early in the week. But apart from that is was a fun experience. We got the food pacage with it and hung around after the tour was over. Was a great play to chill. There was some live music as well. Enjoyed the whole day.
  • 3 times - that's how many times I've been to this place I adore it even more everytime. Each visit has been a unique experience with different guides who are well equipped with history, knowledge and charisma. The Brewhouse and staff will make you feel like incredibly welcome and valued. Facilities and bar area are kept extremely clean. In summary, my favourite thing about this place is even though it's one of (or is) the biggest brewery in Australia, it has that nice old fashioned charm and hospitality.
