Relatively new microbrewery located not far from the ferry terminal in Manly. Beers were nothing wow as just the usual culprits (PA, Hefe, Kolsh & ESB). Was very quiet for a Friday arvo. Update July ’12. A much wider selection of beers to when they first started up. Seasonals and one-offs etc. I’m not a massive fan of the beers - some are just downright awful and poorly brewed however they seem to have quite a following from the locals.

Been here a couple of times now and always enjoyed it. Good to be able to try some of their specials and one-offs. The food was good and the overall atmosphere excellent.

Nice small brewery right near the ferry wharf. Five flagship brews and some one offs. Food available, but I did not try. Inside and outside seating available.

If you live on the Beaches chances are there’s a 4 Pines tap in your local. I’ve tried a handful of their offerings at various locations further north and in bottle but this was the first time I’d visited the home of 4 Pines despite having been to Manly many a time and not living that far, all things considered. A little hard to find a seat and darkly lit where we were but good enough for one glass though a long stay wouldn’t have been on the cards nor would dining. The range is fine and made all the better given the specials and one-off taps they offer alongside their regular line-up with prices in keeping with Manly. Service also fine given that it was on quite a busy Easter Monday. Also a cider and ginger beer on tap for those so inclined. A must if you’re in the area.

Visited Sunday afternoon, it was pretty busy. Close to the the ferry landing. Seating inside with some outside. They had 6 beers on tap and 1 cider. All of which was solid but a few had some noticeable diacetyl. The food was good.

Visited on July 14, 2013.
Took the ferry from Sydney to Manly, nice ride there in the day, and to the lights of the Sydney harbour coming home at night. Think the ferry was just short of $15 return.
Walk off the ferry and out of the terminal, cross the first road, turn right. You’ll see a black sign with white print stating "micro brewery" just up the road. It will be on your left hand side coming from the ferry.
They had 7 beers (well, 6 beers + 1 cider). Tasting paddle of 5 for $15. Single tasters cost $3, very nicely thought for us beer nerds out beer hunting. Tasting paddle was great looking too.
Beers not served as horribly cold as most other places in this country.
Didn’t eat but had the 7 different drinks they had available. Brewery visible behind glass. Fairly big indoors and smaller outdoors seating. A flight of stairs to get up to the place from the street. No WiFi.

The beers were all solid, especially the special from the "Keller Door" series. One of the brewers was Canadian and the pub did a fun Canada Day celebration with poutine and a "Canadian" brown ale brewed with maple syrup.

One of the better brew pubs in Australia with a decent view of the wharf. $3 tasters for all beers, they have the 5 regulars and 3 brewpub one off’s. Service was nice and knowledgable. The downside was very very poor food, generic offerings and not executed nicely.

Very busy on a Sunday afternoon nowhere to sit. Despite this bar service very little queuing. Tried Weiss ESB and Kolsch all OK but nothing more. Expensive and would definitely recommend Murray’s before here

Visited March 2012. Friendly, first floor bar with a pleasant view from the balcony over the harbour. The specials were all stouts when I visited, and the oatmeal one was enjoyable. Well worth a visit.
