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.
Brewpub close to the Manly ferry terminal. Downstairs has a restaurant licence, upstairs is the bar, where you can just grab a beer without having to order food (pub food served upstairs also though). Around 12 taps of 4 Pines beers on, including a couple of specials, and the cask Best Bitter, which was decent. Paddles served, choice of 5 beers. They are a friendly bunch behind the bar. Definitely worth a visit if getting the ferry to Manly
Near the ferry terminal but not much of a view. The downstairs section has all the specials and one-offs, the upstairs just has the core range. Not sure what the point is of having a second, worse bar attached to your brewpub, but what do I know? Good variety of specials in the downstairs part, fairly up to date, I think it’s the only place I’ve seen a NEIPA in Australia. Food and service pretty normal. Make it a part of your day-trip to Manly.
A decent brewpub in Manly right near the wharf. Went here in the afternoon. Decent service but not as beer geeky as some other places. They have decent beers, not mindblowing but decent. Food was okay.
Located near to the Manly ferry terminal, has the microbrewery upstairs visible from the main bar, with another bar downstairs serving a good range of small batch Keller door series beers (available as tasting flights of 5) and friendly fast service, recommended.
Visited in January 2015. Took the ferry up to Manly, from there its a really short walk to 4 Pines. All their beers on tap aswell with the special cellar door beers. Nice ambiance, good service, worth a visit.
Nice place 2 minutes walk from the ferry terminal (a good excuse to catch the ferry actually). Always lots of 4 pines beers you’ve never seen before. This place is always busy. Good food (Poutine!), great beer, fantastic service, lovely view. What’s not to like?
We went to the brewery location in Brookvale, which is located buried within an industrial park. Wonderfully set up interior, with the brewing facilities right next to the tasting area. 15 beers on tap, of varying quality and ambition. The standard lineup isn’t anything special, but some of the more adventurous beers are decent. Paddles of 5 for between $15 and $20. Service is extremely friendly and generous with the free samples. Worth coming to.
Visited on 7th April 2016. It’s a couple of minutes walk from the ferry terminal and has a nice view of the harbour.
It’s on the 1st floor and has inside and outside seating. Food is pretty good.
The beer range showcases the core range plus Keller Door small batch releases. The beers are pretty solid. It’s a nice place to get to with the ferry and a decent spot for beer. Recommend a visit here.
Nice vibe at Manly beach, right near the station. Decent selection of in-house brews. Some better than others, overall decent. Slow service, and food’s on the expensive side, but the food is good and they do flights!
