Where you will go

Hidden down a Camperdown laneway, Wayward is housed deep inside the roots of the former winery that occupied the site nearly a century ago. Originally a gypsy brewing they now have there own brewing and state of the art bottling line. The 12-tap bar features a constantly changing tap list of craft-beer goodness, pouring Wayward beers that are only available at the brewery.

Led by fifth and sixth generation convict descendants, the guys behind The Rocks 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.

3 guys started brewing out of Young Henrys as gypsy brewers. Since then the boys have taken Young Henry’s first brewhouse and opened up their own brewery in Marrickville. Based in an old commercial laundry, with 12 taps and even a pool table a lot has changed in 3 years. Try the Fresh and Clean IPL named after the previous tenants.

Started by two Americans who met in Oz, Batch is the brewery you want to visit if you like something thats always new! A core range of four beers, and a further rotating six taps in the brewery, Batch likes to put out a new beer every 10 days. So if you’ve been here before, then there’ll almost definitely be something new for you to try.

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)!

Akasha is one of the newer members to the Sydney brewing scene. Based in Five Dock, Dave, Wes and the rest of the Akasha crew bring a great attention to detail and the infamous ‘Akasha’ – the unspoken fifth element to their hop-centric ales.

Young Henry’s is perhaps Sydney’s most recognised large craft brewery. Just behind Newtown, Young Henry’s provides a fantastic example of what makes craft beer great! Good beers, a sense of community and good vibes all round.

*SOMETIMES THINGS CHANGE – Because our 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.
