South Australia has a great selection of Micro Breweries and it is great to incorporate some of these breweries into your wine tours. Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and the Fleurieu or the Barossa are some of the regions that you will have an enjoyable day of visiting the craft brewers.
All of the Craft and Micro Brewers charge a taste fee for groups to visit and as the weekends are extremely busy you will be required to book your group in and pay deposits at some of the venues to secure a time slot for your group to visit.
