The Northern Exposure gets you up to the Northern Beaches, for a taste of the beach life, with some awesome beers in hand.

Checking out the breweries around Manly, Mona Vale and Brookvale, we kick off with a cruise out of Manly to Brookvale, then up to Mona Vale for a stop for lunch, then back down the peninsula to see another brewery in Brookvale, then we drop you back to 4Pines at Manly.

Over the course of the day, you can expect to try great amount of beer, and beer styles, all talked through by our expert guide. We talk about the ingredients and the brewing process, while you get to go behind the scenes of the breweries and check all that out as well.

On this tour you will visit 3 awesome Northern Beaches breweries and have an a delicious lunch at a cool venue. Which breweries we visit on the day does change – not all places are open every day and is all about timing and providing a good mix of places, people and beers.

Number of guests per tour – This tour accommodates a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 10 guests (get in touch for information on larger group sizes). Your order will be confirmed once we have filled 6 seats on the tour.

Where you will go

One of the finest brewpubs in Sydney, Flat Rock is a hidden gem on the lower North shore. With a growing reputation for traditional ales and saisons, the scale of the nano brewery certainly doesn’t limit creativity. With a bit of luck, you may even get to sample some of the famous barrel aged beers they keep hidden away downstairs.

Perhaps one of Australia’s smallest breweries, Block and Tackle is the newest beer-stop on the Beer Coaster tour. Very much a community-focused brewery, you’ll get to try their beers, check out the space, and learn what it takes to live the dream of owning your own brewery.

The boys behind Six String Brewing have combined their love for music, the coast and beer to create a mecca for those who share their passions. Tasting their core range and a selection of new releases, we will grab a bite to eat from their delicious menu, enjoy lunch in the tasting bar, and maybe even get a chance to enjoy some live music.


*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.
