Which breweries the tour visits on the day does change depending on brewing operations, making these brewery tours truly unique and different each time. The focus is on providing a good mix of places, people, and craft beers to offer the best possible experience. A list of the breweries you may visit is highlighted below in more depth; however, if you do have a must-see beer spot, please let us know when making your booking and we’ll do all we can to make it happen.
WILLIE THE BOATMAN
Starting in 2012, Willie the Boatman beers are brewed on ex-dairy equipment, repurposed for brewing the delicious amber liquid known as beer! Pat, Nick, Joel and the gang at Willie’s do a fantastic job of creating beers with plenty of character (read; flavour)!
BATCH BREWING CO
Started by two Americans who met in Australia, Batch is the brewery you want to visit if you like something that's always new! With a core range of four beers and a further rotating six taps in the brewery, Batch Brewing Co likes to put out a new beer every 10 days. Even if you’ve been here before, there will almost definitely be something different for you to try each time you visit.
WAYWARD BREWING COMPANY
Hidden down a Camperdown laneway, Wayward Brewing Company is housed deep inside the roots of the former winery that occupied the site nearly a century ago. Originally a gypsy brewing company, they now have their own brewing and state-of-the-art bottling line. The 12-tap bar features a constantly changing list of craft-beer goodness, pouring Wayward beers that are only available at the brewery.
AKASHA BREWING CO
Akasha Brewing Co is one of the newer members to the Sydney brewing scene. Based in Five Dock, Dave, Wes and the rest of the Akasha crew bring a great attention to detail and the infamous ‘Akasha’ – the unspoken fifth element to their hop-centric ales.
ROCKS BREWING COMPANY
Led by fifth and sixth generation convict descendants, the guys behind The Rocks Brewing Company have thrown their all into setting up one of the most advanced breweries in town. Explore the brewhouse and get up close to their brewing equipment as you sample beers straight from the tank.
GRIFTER BREWING COMPANY
Three guys began brewing out of Young Henrys as gypsy brewers. Since then, the boys have taken Young Henry’s first brewhouse and opened up their own brewery in Marrickville. Based in an old commercial laundry with twelve taps and a pool table, a lot has changed in three years for The Grifter Brewing Company. Try the Fresh and Clean IPL, paying homage to the previous tenants.
Young Henry’s is perhaps Sydney’s most recognised large craft brewery. Just behind Newtown, Young Henry’s provides a fantastic example of what makes craft beer great! Good beers, a sense of community and good vibes all around.
