Where you'll be

This experience takes us to some of the best Inner West independent breweries available. Each brewery has its own unique vibe as well as beautiful hand crafted beers to taste. We'll provide initial tasting samples at the first brewery. There may also be opportunities to check out the brewery operations and meet the people behind the scenes. There is now also an optional hidden gin distillery - a great palette cleanser between breweries.

We had an awesome time on the craft beer tour with Peter! He brought us to some amazing, hidden-away locations, that we would not have found ourselves and, of course, we got to try lots of great beer. We are big fans of the craft beer scene, but still got plenty of useful and interesting information. Peter made us feel welcome right from the start and was a great host. We had a really interesting and relaxed conversation, not just about beers. Very well structured tour through suburbs of Sydney that we would otherwise probably not have visited. Thanks Peter, it was a pleasure to meet you!

Highly recommend! We ended up being the only group on the tour and it was so special. Peter is very knowledge and personable and really tailored our brewery tour based on our likes. He shared great insight into the culture and his experiences traveling all over the world. It was the perfect way to end our trip in Australia and would take any of his tours again in a heartbeat if the opportunity arises!

Peter is a great host! He really made an effort to get to know what kind of beers we liked and took us to breweries that specialized in those brews. His beer (and life) chat was fantastic - it was like going for a beer with an old mate. He is a genuinely nice guy who can get on with anyone. We would’ve loved to have spent longer with him.

Peter was an absolute blast to hang out with. He was very personable and friendly, and made me and my boyfriend feel very welcome. We talked about everything and nothing and spent a wonderful three hours tasting some delicious beers and gin. Peter shared some great insights about the beers we were tasting and the places we went to felt truly unique. I definitely would recommend this experience to anyone who enjoys good company and great drinks. Thanks for a wonderful night!

Loved doing this tour with Peter - it was a great night out. After strolling from the station through the industrial area of Marrickville, we first arrived at a very interesting craft beer space where there were plenty of beers on tap and a full range to try. This brewery specialises in sour beers. Pete gave us a rundown of their beers and recommended ones to try based on our preferences. The next brewery was different again - a larger, more airy space with a gorgeous garden outside. It was very pleasant to sit here and chat with the other guests while trying some very different beers. The last brewery was my favourite mostly for its beer choices. It was a smaller space and there were lots of doggies there that added to the atmosphere. Again, a very convivial space and despite not knowing the other guests beforehand, we were firm friends afterwards. Pete was a special host whose stories and knowledge entertained and informed us. He had a great knack for making us feel welcome and comfortable. He was able to explain about beer production and even had a friend who had been involved in setting up one of the breweries, pop in and chat to us. I learnt a lot about craft beer production while enjoying the company of others. A great experience, thanks Pete!
