Itinerary
Meet your guide at the designated time in either Sydney CBD or Manly, depending on your choice of tour (details under Itinerary below). Your guide knows the key players in Sydney’s craft beer scene and makes the daily schedule depending on who is brewing on the day of your tour.

All tours include plentiful tastings of fine craft beers at each venue, and comfortable transportation in a minivan equipped with air-conditioning, light snacks and drinking water. The 6-hour tour covers a wider reach of geographical locations, and includes a hearty pub lunch with several meat or vegetarian options.

Not left thirsty

Great way to celebrate with life long mates. We were informed about the beer making process by knowledgeable beer enthusiasts. Had enough samples to be happy. Visited three great breweries.
