          Fantastic day out!
          We had a private tour for our EOFY work day out and everything was brilliant. Organising the trip with Jarryd was easy, the venues perfect, and the timings perfect. I’d definitely recommend!

          I thoroughly enjoyable day with Ben our driver and host. A good selection of distilleries and breweries on the day. There was something for the entire group of 15 people.

          Great distillery (and brewery) tour
          Fantastic tour. Jarryd made everything so easy with the booking process, pick up and drop off at our accommodation made it stress free while Edward our driver was friendly and happy to accommodate our needs. Our favourite place was Cape Byron Distillery - beautiful views, great story about how the farm and distillery came about and we all loved the gin (and whiskey)!

          Get slightly tipsy while learning lots!
          Jumped at the chance of a free babysitter (thanks mum!) and celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary by taking the full barrel tour. As a former local of the area, I was really keen to see a few of the notable distilleries and breweries that have popped up on the Far North Coast over the past decade. Jarryd was a great tour guide - personable, funny and very knowledgeable about the places we visited and the various drinks we imbibed (oh yes, there was a few!). Tastings at each location included a chat from one of the brewers, with lots of interesting facts about the history of the place and the drinks on offer. Jarryd kindly dropped us off at the front door and we needed a bit of a lie down and a kebab! Such a great day out! Would totally recommend!

          Beautiful day out - highly recommend
          I went on the all day tour with my partner and we thoroughly enjoyed the day. Jarryd was very informative and laid back - we loved the stories behind each venue we visited, the tastings were generous and delicious. If you go on this tour I highly recommend getting the pina colada cocktail at the lord Byron rum distillery, it was as good as they said it is :)

          She likes Pina coladas!!
          I had a wonderful day, Jarrod made me feel very welcome and took us to some great places. Best pina colada ever at the rum distillery... loved it bought all the bottles to take home!! It was educational in the alcohol business and very tasty tastings everywhere we went. Very easy pick up and drop off from Ballina. A must do!

          The Behind the Barrel Tour was an absolute blast! With a group of 20 friends, we had an incredible time exploring, learning, and tasting. Jarryd from Behind the Barrell Tours has everything sorted for you so just sit back relax & enjoy the day! Highly recommended for a fun, effortless and enjoyable day!

        My husband and I came down to Byron for our honeymoon and decided to book a tour to learn more about the local brews and spirits and we are so glad we did!

        Our tour guide Jarryd was amazing, he taught us so much not only about the breweries/distilleries but Byron Bay/Australia. He is also an amazing photographer!

        We had the absolute best day and would recommend this tour to anyone that enjoys beer and spirits.

        We also got to see a baby Koala in the wild which was the absolute icing on the cake!

And a cheeky detour to see hubbys favourite bands street Parkway Drive! I hope you enjoyed the rest of your honeymoon and hope you come back to Aus soon to see more! Cheers Jarryd

        We had a great time on the afternoon tour all 3 venues were great and our guide Rory was excellent, very knowledgeable of the area the venue and their products. Me and my girlfriend were the only ones on the tour so it was like a private tour and we loved it. A nice amount of time at each place and was nice chatting away with him throughout.

        The guy at lord Byron distillery was particularly good as his place is small and relatively new he talked us right through every product and answered all our questions. We even got a few bottles of rum and vodka as they were too good not to buy.

        We knew what to expect at at stone and wood as they are so big, nice selection of beers and cider unique to our tastes.
        Wandana is a cool little brewery with top notch beers and beautiful view.

        Definitely recommend the Arvo session if your in Byron. My girlfriend was pleasantly surprised as she really not a beer fan AT ALL haha.

        Really great tour around Byron Bay. We visited three places, starting with the Lord Byron distillery, then the Stones & Wood brewery and lastly the Cape Byron distillery! Great places and good booze <3
        Jarred was a really cool guy - knowing lots about the place + friendly and chatty as the two nice aussie girls we joined the trip with.
        Perfect small-group trip for a rainy day in Byron Bay ;)

        Such a chilled out way to spend a Sunday afternoon being driven around to drink and eat if you wish. Jarryd was a great tour guide and all the venues he took us too the staff certainly new their stuff. Caters for everyone as I'm not a huge beer drinker. I went as a solo and everyone made me feel welcome. Highly recommend

        Although not much of a spirits drinker, the Lord Byron distillery was very educational. Stone & Wood & Wandana breweries provided some great beers too
        The tasting platters for drinks at all venues were great & Jarryd was a fantastic host too, with hotel pick-up from Ballina an unexpected bonus.
        Tour made all the better by great company on such a small tour group for us.
        No time pressure providing a great experience without feeling any pressure to move on to the next venue

Jarryd was an awesome tour guide and gave us lots of recommendations throughout the day. As a non beer drinker, he was very accommodating with ensuring I got to taste beer alternatives at the brewery!
