What to Expect

Head north to the stunning beaches and craft breweries of Northern Sydney for a full day of local beer discovery. Drive through iconic Manly and head to the new mecca of beer for the Northern Beaches, Brookvale. Also known as ‘Brewvale’, visit some fantastic breweries and maybe even a distillery. 


During your brewery visits, taste your way through a great number of amazing beers, of all different styles, strengths, colours and flavours. Learn about the brewing process and the ingredients used, and go behind the scenes to get a real feel for the breweries of Sydney’s Northern Beaches. A highlight of the day is an awesome brewery lunch, sampling some of the best local produce. This tour can also pick up and drop off guests in Manly from the 4 Pines Brew Pub, 29/43-45 E Esplanade at 11.00 am sharp with a drop-off at approximately 5.00 pm. 


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 and distilleries 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. 


The Venues

Nomad Brewing Co, in Brookvale, knows just how to use Australia’s native ingredients to influence the beers they produce. Headed by an Italian Head Brewery, and the husband and wife team behind Experience IT Beverages, you can be sure to find something interesting at Nomad Brewing Co, no matter the weather. Their motto – ‘Never Settle’.


Established on the Northern Beaches in 2011, Dad and Dave’s is a true family-owned business. They focus on the four core ingredients of beer and use them through innovative techniques to give the people what they want. It is even embodied in their motto – ‘We make beer! Delicious beer!’


Modus Operandi, Latin for ‘Method of Operations’, embodies what Modus’ beer is all about. Beer first, no shortcuts. And that’s reflected in the quality of beer they produce. Flying live yeast in from the US, and canning everything cold, Modus Operandi is all about the ‘fresh is best’ ideology.


It really is a bar in a truck. The large-scale production brewery and packaging line located in Brookvale is a regular favourite for locals. 4 Pines is on a mission to become Australia’s first carbon-neutral brewery. They have a love for beer, a focus on the environment, and a passion for the community.


After their long-term dream of owning and running an independent brewery in Bucketty fell between their fingers, owners Nick and Lexi instead opened their brewery doors in Brookvale in February 2021. Bucketty’s like to do things a little differently, using homegrown hops and wood from their land to bring the bush to Brookvale.


Seventh Day Brewery operates with the combined importance of creating excellent beer and wholehearted involvement within the local community. They rose from the dust with the help of the community through crowdfunding, as such they promote the idea of giving back and doing good.


Capturing the harmony between carefree beach life and urban sophistication for which Manly is renowned, founders David, Vanessa and the Manly Spirits Co. team create Australian Gins, Botanical Vodkas and Whiskies that rival the best in the world. Much of their inspiration comes from the stunning surrounding marine environment of the New South Wales coastline.
