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

Nomad in Brookvale, are like chefs, in how they use Australia’s native ingredients to influence the beers they produce. Headed by an Italian Head Brewery, and the Husband and Wife team behind Experience IT Beverages, you can be sure to find something interesting at Nomad, no matter the weather. Their motto – ‘Never Settle’.

Established on the Northern Beaches in 2011, Dad and Dave’s is a truly family owned business. They focus on the four ingredients of beer, and using them through innovative techniques, to give the people what they want. Embodied in their motto – ‘We make beer! Delicious beer!’.

Modus Operandi – latin for ‘Method of Operations’ embodies what Modus’ beer is all about. Beer first, No shortcuts. And thats reflected in the quality of beer they produce. Flying live yeast in from the US, and canning everything cold, Modus is all about the ‘fresh is best’ ideology. A regular stop for us with lunch, and providing live music most weekends, Modus is a must visit.

It really is a bar in a truck. The large scale production brewery and packaging line located in Brookvale, is a regular favourite for locals. 4 Pines is on a mission to become Australias first carbon neutral brewery. I love for beer, a focus on the environment and a passion for the community.



*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.
