The tour starts at Circular Quay.

James Squire The Squires Landing

Opened in mid 2018, The Squire’s Landing is James Squires flagship brewhouse. Overlooking the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, it has to be one of the most well placed breweries in the world.

The brewery has its own fully glazed room, perched high above the open air beer garden and fully visible from the whole venue. The beers on offer include the core James Squire range brewed elsewhere together with small batches brewed on site.

Endeavour Brewing Co Tap Rooms

The Endeavour Tap Rooms is located in the Rocks area in an historic old colonial hotel dating back to the 1800s.

There are a number of small rooms throughout the multileveled building with the actual brewery being squeezed into a small downstairs tap room. The beers on offer include the Endeavour range of beers with a couple produced on site, which are clearly indicated on the menus

Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel

The Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel is Sydney’s oldest continually licensed hotel is also home to Australia’s oldest pub brewery, most of which can be seen at the back behind the bar.

Looking and feeling like an old English pub, the Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel serves its consistent range of seven beers, and one rotating seasonal beer, amongst the convict quarried sandstone walls.

Always busy, you can retire upstairs to the restaurant to sample the great food, or try and find a space downstairs for some traditional English bar meals.

All Hands Brewing Co

Having been a number of other breweries, a massive refurbishment in late 2017 saw the emergence of All Hands Brewing Co.

The open beer garden overlooking Darling Harbour flows into a large indoor seating area on a couple of levels, which focus on the two bars. The brewery is located on the lower level to the side fronted by its own bar area.

The REDOAK Boutique Beer Café

Half way along Clarence Street is the REDOAK Boutique Beer Café, a small haven with its large range of internationally styled beers. You can try anything from German Wheat Beers to an English Oatmeal Stout from the 12 taps and one handpump.

Beers are brewed offsite, but this is the only outlet for Redoak beers.
