Sydney Northern Beaches Craft Beer Guide

SYDNEY | While Sydney’s inner west, and Marrickville in particular has carved out a reputation as being the heart of Sydney’s craft beer scene, there’s a lot going on elsewhere in the city too. Case in point is Sydney’s northern beaches, which is home to a number of fantastic breweries. It might seem like the northern beaches brewing scene is young, and from a modern craft beer perspective it is, but in fact the first brewery in this area was Brookvale Brewing Company, which ran from 1950-57.

Talking about the current brewing scene, and breweries that still exist, it started with 4 Pines, who opened their original Manly brewery in 2008, followed by the likes of Mona Vale’s Modus Operandi, Brookvale’s Nomad and more. Today there’s a lot of exciting and interesting beer being produced in the area, and while you’ll have to use public transport or have a designated driver (or go on an organised pub crawl) to get to all of them, it’s well worth it. There are beers you can’t get anywhere else on offer at the various breweries, ranging from the accessible to the experimental.

Here’s our Sydney northern beaches craft beer guide conveniently mapped out for you – simply click on the breweries to find out more.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
