What you can expect
Dive into the drink culture of New South Wales as you explore the beer scene in Newcastle. With an in-the-know guide leading the way, visit brewhouses, beer pubs, and restaurants known for serving a mix of both old and new brews in spectacular atmospheres.
Meet your guide in Newcastle near the shore of the Hunter River and head off for a picturesque walk towards the Lucky Hotel. Grab a seat in the trendy pub among a mix of modern designs and antique elements and order up a traditional craft creation like a refreshing golden ale or cloudy apple cider.
Next, head to industrial-chic Foghorn Brewhouse for a tasting of unique beers such as double raisin stout or chocolatey brown ale. Continue on to the Hop Factory, a locally owned restaurant serving up a rotating selection of Australian-made beers ranging from bright pilsners to thick stouts. Your tour concludes at the Grain Store, a café boasting one of the largest craft beer tap lists in Australia. Settle amid the Art Deco environment for a tasting of creations like hoppy IPAs, citrusy hefeweizens, or rich porters before saying goodbye to your guide.
