THE New England and North West's best breweries and distilleries will be showcased during a day-long bus tour on November 28.

Hosted by Tamworth's Chris Watson Travel, the Brew Bus Tour will take in four venues across the region including The Welder's Dog, New England Brewing Company, Dobson's Distillery and The Top Pub Uralla.

The Welder's Dog owner Ben Coombes said as well as being a boost to the local tourism sector, the event would allow guests to take in the region's "paddock to glass" potential.

"So often you see places advertise that they are paddock to plate but this is our chance to show you can create great drinks with local produce as well," Mr Coombes said.

"It really is like paddock to glass in a sense because I know we source all of our malt grains from the Wee Waa area and all of the other local guys where the tour will stop do the same.

"I think it is a great chance for us to show the benefit of sourcing products locally because COVID-19 has certainly shown us what can happen when don't have your own stuff on hand."

Mr Coombes said the event was an example of how local businesses can thrive when they work together.

"It has been a pretty tough year for our local tourism businesses and for us in the hospitality sector as well," he said.

"Events like these are really the perfect way to help people see the great things we've got in our region.

"Hopefully it will be a great day out and who knows, it might hopefully lead to these things becoming a regular event."

The tour costs $225 per person and includes lunch, a dinner voucher, transport and tasting at all venues.

Limited tickets are available due to COVID-Safe policies and group bookings are limited to 10 people.
