Experience the thrill of Sydney’s newest and most exciting sport – urban Axe throwing! The Maniax pros teach you the skill of axe throwing, followed by a competition to crown the champion. The prize? Bragging rights for the rest of the day!

After embracing your inner Viking we take you to two top craft breweries, for a behind the scenes look at Sydney beer.

At each venue we will guide you through a tasting session, and discuss ingredients, brewing techniques, styles and just general cool beer stuff!

This tour also includes an awesome lunch at one of our favourite pubs!

Which breweries we visit on the day does change – not all places are open every day and our beer tours are all about timing and providing a good mix of places, people, and beers.

Number of guests per tour – This Sydney beer tour accommodates a minimum of six and a maximum of 10 guests (get in touch for information on larger group sizes). Your order will be confirmed once we have filled six seats on the tour.


  • Chevron down MANIAX – AXE THROWING
  • Located in Precinct 75, in the heart of the Inner West; Maniax offers you the chance to let out your inner viking, and unleash some axes! A place for you to … ‘Bury the Hatchet’ with your mates.

  • Chevron down WILLIE THE BOATMAN
  • Started in 2012, Willie the Boatman beers are brewed on ex-dairy equiptment, repurposed for brewing the delicious amber liquid known as beer! Pat, Nick, Joel and the gang at Willie’s do a fantastic job of creating beers with plenty of character (read; flavour)!

  • Led by fifth and sixth generation convict descendants, the guys behind The Rocks Brewing Company have thrown their all into setting up one of the most advanced breweries in town. Explore the brewhouse and get up close to their brewing equipment as you sample beers straight from the tank.

SOMETIMES THINGS CHANGE – Because our brewery tours are truly behind the scenes experiences sometimes our plans need to change to accommodate brewery operations. And sometimes we just know about beer goings on around town that are worth checking out, so we may change some parts of our tours. Whilst these changes are rare, we do reserve the right to make them. If you do have a MUST-SEE beer spot, please let us know when making your booking and we’ll do all we can to make it happen.
