Long lunches, wine tastings and beer paddles – Kiff & Culture is taking you to Brisbane’s best artisan spots
When it comes to going out on the town, we all have our own bank of tried-and-true spots, and these personal favourites usually go hand in hand with unforgettable memories spent with friends and family over delicious bevvies and bites. If you’re keen on adding some new spots into your wining and dining repertoire, then we have an easy solution – Kiff & Culture. Already running food and wine tours out of Byron Bay, the Tweed hinterland and Tamborine Mountain, the tour company has recently launched Brisbane’s first artisan food and drink tour, giving locals a new way to experience the crème de la crème of the city’s culinary scene – with a little help from a van.
So that Brisbane locals can experience some of the best edible goodness that the city has to offer (with the luxury of door-to-door service, to boot), Kiff & Culture has partnered with some top-notch local venues. The artisan food and drink day tour drives hungry revellers to Fish Lane favourite Southside for a five-course banquet, with drool-inducing eats like drunken scallops with fermented chilli jam, duck ragu, pork and prawn sui mai with caviar, and truffle spring rolls set to be plated up. If you get thirsty, fret not – you can pair your flavoursome feast with an optional wine-matching experience or drinks package, with your tour guide having the extra bonus of being a designated driver. Next stop on the itinerary – City Winery. It’s here where oenophiles will get rewarded with some kick-ass grape juice and guided through the dynamite drops (including the much-poured Deathbox Grenache) by the knowledgeable City Winery team.
As Creedence Clearwater Revival muses, big wheels keep on turning – and this particular set of wheels are set to keep rolling you to your choice of sipping spots. To round out the afternoon, choose between beloved drinking destinations Stone & Wood Brewery and Granddad Jack’s Craft Distillery. Hop heads can sample Stone & Wood’s refreshing range of sudsy sips including its limited-release Counter Culture selection and pilot batches on tap, whilst spirited folk can tackle Grandad Jack’s critically acclaimed range of gins, which will be perfectly paired with tonic water. Whether you’re planning a long-overdue catch up with friends, a birthday bash, work Christmas party or you just want to delve deep into Brisbane’s dining scene, Kiff & Culture will have you well looked after. A man with a van and a plan, if you will.
Kiff & Culture’s artisan food and drink tours run Thursday through to Sunday, can take bookings for groups sizes of 4–40 people and collections can be made within a 50-km radius of the CBD. Is the group chat already popping off? Lock in your preferred date and make a booking at the Kiff & Culture website.
