Dive into the land of beer and beaches with this Brewery Hopping Tour around the Northern Beaches, in Brookvale and Mona Vale. Comprising visits and tastings at four different breweries, this tour is not just for beer connoisseurs and but for anyone and everyone looking to have a ball of a time while sampling some great brews.

Departing from either Surry Hills or Manly, we will head to the new mecca of beer for the Northern Beaches, Brookvale - also jokingly called ‘Brewvale’, where we will explore two fantastic breweries. Moving on, we will continue to Mona Vale where we will indulge in some exceptional brews and food amidst some equally fantastic brewing machinery before returning to Brookvale to visit the fourth and final brewery on our list. 

The four breweries we’ll be heading to include:

Nomad Brewing Co

Using Australia’s native ingredients to influence the beers they produce and headed by an Italian as well as the husband and wife duo behind Experience IT Beverages, there is always something interesting happening at Nomad, come rain or shine. Their motto – ‘Never Settle’.

Dad & Dave’s Brewing Co

A truly family owned business established back in 2011, this one focuses on the four ingredients of beer and uses them through innovative techniques to give the people exactly what they want. It’s literally reflected in their motto – ‘We make beer! Delicious beer!’

Modus Operandi Brewing Co

All about the ‘fresh is best’ ideology, Modus is all about beer with zero shortcuts. They fly in live yeast from the US and can everything cold, clearly embodied in their superior quality brews. A regular as our lunch stop, they offer a great ambiance too, especially with their live music that’s available most weekends.

4 Pines – Truck Bar

Literally a bar in a truck, this large scale production brewery and packaging line located in Brookvale is quite the crowd favourite. They are on a mission to become Australia’s first carbon neutral brewery with their endless love for beer, a focus on the environment, and a passion for the community.

The trail will treat you to an insane amount of excellent beers, getting you up close with an array of different styles, strengths, colours and flavours. Discussing brewing processes, ingredients, behind-the-scenes operations at breweries, this is an activity that will return you with a huge grin on your face!
