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.
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!
I stayed for 5 days in Manly for work purposes. This was the only place I could find in the area that allowed you to have a smoke with a drink in your hand. It has a balcony with radiant heaters that shuts at 10pm. Didn’t try the food but it has all the regular beers (brewed off site at their main brewery in Brookvale) plus the Keller Door small batch releases (possibly brewed on site - the best being their English style Best Bitter on hand pump). Approx $10 a pint. Gets quite crowded at weekends. Worth the trip even if staying in CBD (located across the road from Manly Wharf - about 30mins from Circular Quay by ferry with good harbour views). Manly Beach itself is actually a 10 min stroll from here (full of surfers).
