Touring Craft Breweries on Northern Beaches

One of the best ways to see them is on tour with Northern Beaches Brewery Tours. On the tour, you'll visit four breweries, and they are always happy to take requests if you have a brewery you're been desperate to see.

Setting off from the historic Manly Wharf, take a short trip to Brookvale for a behind-the-scenes tour, beer-tasting talk and delicious lunch. Then along the coast to Mona Vale or Manly Vale to enjoy tasting paddles and brewery stories. Hop back on the bus to 'Brewvale' for the tasting session at the last two breweries. From there, it is a short trip back to Manly, where we will drop you off near the original microbrew house of 4 Pines and Manly Wharf.

Trust us when we say you won't be disappointed. The tour itinerary is planned so you can sit back and relax. And with brewers branching out into the world of distilling, alcoholic ginger beers, seltzers and non-alcoholic beverages, there is something for everyone on our tours!

Craft Breweries Around Dee Why

4 Pines: Born following a post-surf chat at Manly between Jaron and his dad Steve, a whole lot has happened since these guys first opened their own microbrewery in Manly in 2004. 4Pines’ 11(!) venues including BrewPub Manly, TruckBar Brookvale, Public House Newport + Blocks Bar Manly.

Bucketty’s: All about the Brewery, the Bar and the Music. Bucketty’s is one of Brookvale’s hidden gems (well, to the rest of Sydney it is!) and really a one-of-a-kind venue. There is such a friendly atmosphere and everyone is welcome, even if you have four legs. All of Bucketty’s brews are made in-house by hand with the amazing brew team rotating a range of beer + ciders across their 15 taps. They also have a stack of great Aussie wines, beers and spirits.

26 Orchard Rd, Brookvale

Modus Operandi: Born in 2014, the Mona Vale venue is the first of MO’s establishments and the original HQ of Modus Brewing, playing a pivotal role in the award-winning past of the company. The venue has been awarded champion smaller, medium & large brewery and continues to produce award-winning beers today. The venue is filled with character and you’ll find 16 beers on taps, a delicious rotating menu featuring dripping burgers, authentic pizzas, chicken wings that are both mild and damn hot (for the risk-takers), and hearty bowls & salads if you are looking for something lighter.

14 Harkeith St, Mona Vale

Quakers Hat Brewing in Northern Beaches

Quakers Hat Brewing: A small family run craft brewery dedicated to serving its local residents. Since opening in 2019 the team have been releasing delicious takes on classic beers as well as some new and inventive styles! You can get the goods straight from the source when the Taphouse is open (Thursday 6pm to 9pm, Friday 5pm to 9pm, Saturday 2pm to 9pm) or purchase take away from the brewery Monday to Saturday.

Cam Robinson, Head Brewery, Recommends Beer of choice — Red Rye IPA. This is one of the first beers we brewed. I really like the relationship between the malty rye and the fruity hops and find it a great winter beer. Tasting Notes: This is a dark, malty brew coupled with big hop flavours reminiscent of blackberry and tropical fruits. Price — $21/4 pack, $90/24 pack case.

Order online or pick up at B14/1 Campbell Parade, Manly Vale

Seventh Day Brewing — Midnight Surfer: Big in both alcohol and flavour, this dark beauty is packed with malts, real cacao and coffee beans. $40/4 Pack. Order online or in-Store.
