For too long there have been winery tours, cellar doors and tastings for wine lovers, but nothing for those who prefer an ice cold brew. But the craft beer revolution has changed all that and Dave’s Brewery Tours are here to take you along for the ride.

With the myriad of microbreweries that have popped up in Sydney in recent years, Dave Phillips saw the opportunity to bring beer lovers together and support the local producers. With a team of avid tour operators behind him, Dave’s Brewery Tours are now running daily and operate all over Sydney and beyond.

Much more than just a courtesy bus, all tours are accompanied by expert operators who are as knowledgeable as they are passionate about the product. Each tour includes a trip to several breweries where you will be taken behind the scenes to learn about the whole process that goes into the wonderful art of beer brewing. Your guide will also delve into the intriguing history of beer here in Australia and around the world, and of course you’ll be treated to several tasters at each venue.

Offering more than just your average lager, each brewery has something a little different to offer, including dry and zesty saizens, hoppy India red ales, creamy milk stouts or the knockout sour beers. Alongside a mix of unique pale ales, IPAs and Bavarian lagers, Dave’s tours give you the chance to try something different and who knows, you may even find your new favourite beer!

The popular Hipsters and Hops tour will take you to Inner West breweries such as Batch Brewing Co., Young Henrys and Rocks Brewing Co., as well as stopping off at the craft beer pub The Henson for a feed (we’re talking baby back ribs, hot dogs and burgers to perfectly match a day of beer consumption). The Northern Exposure tour will take beer enthusiasts around North Sydney to craft beer hot spots such as Modus Operandi Brewing Co. and the famous 4 Pines Brewing.

Short on time? Dave also offers a 3-in-3 weekday tour that gives you a chance to explore three city breweries in three hours. But for those who are looking for a city escape, you can also go on brewery tours that will take you to the Shire or the Central Coast.

If you’re looking for a fun day out with some mates or want to give someone the ultimate gift, Dave’s Brewery Tours offer a one of a kind experience for beer lovers.
