Kiff & Culture Is the New Company Hosting Day Tours Through Brisbane's Food and Drink Scene

Spend a day being driven between Brisbane restaurants, wineries, breweries and distilleries — or head south to eat and drink your way around the Gold Coast or Tamborine Mountain.

Finding somewhere to eat and drink in Brisbane isn't hard, with this city of ours overflowing with restaurants, bars, cafes, breweries, distilleries and even its own inner-city winery. But choosing where to head isn't always as straightforward. Maybe you're just indecisive in general, perhaps you feel spoiled for choice or you could simply want to sample everywhere you can.

Enter Kiff & Culture, the new local company that's doing tours through Brissie's food and drink scene. Book in for one of its sessions, and you'll be taken out for a five-course banquet at Southside, with the option of either adding drinks or a wine pairing. Next, you'll hit up Brisbane's City Winery for a guided wine-tasting session. Then, you'll choose between a third stop at Stone and Wood or Granddad Jack's at Albion — for a tasting paddle of ales, lagers and pilot batches at the former, or for gin at the latter.

If you live within 50 kilometres of the Brisbane CBD, you'll also get picked up beforehand — and, with collection at around 11–11.30am, lunch at midday and drop off between 5–5.30pm, you'll really be making a day of it. Tickets cost between $195–199, depending on whether you opt for Stone and Wood or Granddad Jack's; however, that covers everything on the itinerary.

Friends Drew Campbell and Alex Baker, who went to school together, are behind Kiff & Culture. The pair already ran food and wine tours out of Byron Bay, the Tweed Hinterland and Tamborine Mountain, but launched into Brisbane in late August.

"Over the past few years Brisbane's food and drink scene has grown into an exciting array of new experiences with a passion for local produce," explains Campbell. "With domestic borders closing for the foreseeable future, we're providing the opportunity for locals to explore some of the best venues in the city with the luxury of door-to-door service."

As of late September, Kiff & Culture has made the leap to the Gold Coast as well — and, if you're a Brisbanite who lives within 30 kilometres of the CBD, you can still be collected from home, driven around the Goldie for the day, and then brought back. If that sounds like your idea of an ace day out, you'll start with a five-course banquet at Rick Shores (with an optional drinks package), then move on to beer-tasting at Balter Brewery, and then hit up Granddad Jack's OG Gold Coast venue to sample pilot batches of the distillery's boutique gins.

Kiff & Culture's tours run from Thursday–Sunday weekly. For more information, or to book, head to the company's website.
