Red Bay Brewery tour


 A visit to Red Bay Brewery in Cleveland, QLD Australia. A micro-brewery that allows you to brew up your own beer and bottle it. They offered a tour and tasting day on Groupon and my husband and I enjoyed getting to know our way around the brewery and then the tasting afterwards.
