XXXX Brewery Tours

Have you ever wondered how the XXXX brew got its name? Or how it’s made? Or what it tastes like when it’s poured fresh at the brewery?  If your answer is YES!, treat yourself to one of our historic XXXX Brewery & Alehouse Tours! It’s an unbeatable way to discover the legend of XXXX and experience a true Australian icon up close.

Journey through one of Brisbane’s greatest attractions in a remarkable exploration of the world of XXXX. This brewery tour will take you through the 135-year history of XXXX, from its origins to its position as Australia’s number one beer.

You’ll learn all about your favourite beer: its world-class brewing methods, top quality ingredients and, of course, how to pour a perfect XXXX. After the floods of 2011, we’ve refurbished sections of the brewery with the best equipment, and now it’s better than ever. The tour takes approximately 90 minutes & concludes with a beer tasting session with your tour guide.

Ben’s Grammar Tip of the Week

The Present Perfect Continuous

Last week we had a look at the Present Perfect Simple. This week, we’ve decided to introduce you to its cousin: “The Present Perfect Continuous”.

With Present Perfect Continuous, we focus on the length of time or activity: How long

For example:

ppc2

In the picture above, we see a man fishing. How many fish has he caught? We don’t know.

How long has he been fishing? He has been fishing for four hours!


The Present Perfect Simple focuses on the result: How much, How many.

For example:

ppc1

In the picture above, we can see a man who is fishing. He has caught three fish.

How long has he been fishing? That is right, we do not know.

How many fish has he caught? That is right, he has caught 3 fish!


 

Useful tips:

  • If you see for/since it is usually Present Perfect Continuous.
  • If it is a state verb use Present Perfect Simple.
  • Live, work and study can be either continuous or simple with no change in          meaning.
