“Well worth a visit”
Review of Black Duck Brewery

Black Duck Brewery
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The Black Duck Brewery is a great place to visit in Port Macquarie, it is in an industrial area a little out of town but well worth hunting it down.
The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful taking the time to explain the different craft beers they have on offer - the tasting paddles are a great way to try a few different varieties. They also have a nice selection of local wines and soft drinks available all at a decent price.
We usually get some bar snacks to nibble on with our beers but last time we visited we were lucky enough to be there on the first Friday of the month when they open up with a special themed night, We were there on Mexican Night so it was nachos and quesadillas for dinner, freshly made to order. There was a live band playing and the placed was packed but with a great relaxed vibe

A little hard to find, being in an industrial estate, nothing much to look at, but great once you're in there. Went with friends, had lunch and the guys had beer tasting. We girls had a very decent white wine, we had food as well. The staff were lovely, the ambience was fantastic! Luckily the four of us will be meeting up again in Port Macquarie next year, Black Duck Brewery is on the 'must do' list

This is our second visit to Port Macquarie and our second visit to the Black Duck. First Friday of the month the have food and live music, so we headed down for Mexican night. The beers are great and they have a selection of local wines and soft drinks for the under 18s. The food was amazing, a little slow coming out but the place was busy and the time went quick listening to the great guitarist. Fabulous, friendly, helpful staff.Would definitely recommend a visit and I don't drink beer!

Our annual drop into the black duck while up at Port and it does not disappoint. Great craft beers, new ones to try, friendly staff, cruise, relaxed atmosphere. See you again next year.
