Awesome day, #brad was patient to explain and pass on his beer knowledge from grains to hops! The rest of the tour group was cool as .... considering most weren't into beers... totally awesome day! Recommend it

The guides were extremely helpful and informative. They managed to balance out professionalism and banter. Thanks for the great day guys! Would recommend for a bucks trips!

Don't have a beard and way too old to be a hipster, but love hops. I now also love Dave's Beer Tours, as this was a great day out in Marrickville/Newtown with host Terry. After a very interesting intro covering off questions such as 'first beer drunk and at what age?', 'what's in your fridge?' and 'favourite style?', we very quickly arrived at our first venue, Batch Brewing. This was a great start to the tour as the crew there were full production mode, The tasting flight covered a good spectrum from a sour, an xpa, a nitro ipa, through to a nitro milk stout. Next stop was an early lunch at the 'Hanson', a popular community local where a hearty pub meal was washed down with a lovely neipa, also brewed locally by Willie The Boatman. Then on to one of my current craft favourites, Sauce. It was here that the group, formed pretty much entirely by hop heads, began wield some influence on Terry, as we lined up a hazy galaxy pale ale and the superb bubble & squeak in addition to the berlinner weiss, sampled in a huge covered beer garden at the rear. By the time we reached our final venue, Young Henrys, the place was already gearing up for a busy Friday night, making for a superb atmosphere at hipster central. We had a awesome time sampling their natural lager, double towner pale ale, free the neipa and the ipa, interspersed with convivial conversation around craft beer and american politics. Terry dropped us back in town at the Royal Albert - great host, great company, great beers.

Been on this tour twice now and both times just as good. Awesome day out and James our tour guide really made the day. We were looking for something different rather than just the usual wine tour and this really did the job. Highly recommend for group days out and couple dates. A must do !

stephenofarrell1990 September 2020

The brewery tour was fantastic. Made even better by the tour guide Brad. I want to keep him. I would recommend to everyone thinking of a gift idea for a few lads.

Brad is a gent and full of beer knowledge. We had a great day in Sydney’s inner west breweries. Would recommend.

jodierosenberg333 July 2020

We had such a good time with Brad. We loved the different breweries that we went to and learned a heap. Brad was so nice, extremely knowledgeable and really made the experience for us! Booking was also very smooth and simple. Will definitely be recommending the tour to others.

The brewery choices were really good, and the tour guide was very knowledgable. We got to watch the brewmaster do some of his work up close which was really interesting. Although we enjoyed the beers, we look forward to coming back when the IPA's are a little better.

N3976IPpeterb March 2020

We joined Terry and a small group of beet lovers for a great afternoon full of good beer and traveler's tales, swapping recommendations and enjoying the expressions on faces ad we sampled a mixture of pale ale, sours, up as,cap, lagers and around from three local breweries around the Marickville area. The consumption was broken up by relatively short walks with some great commentary along the way. Our host Terry provided some excellent comments covering beer types and brewing techniques and if you were a novice at the start you would feel fairly proficient in the brewing process by the end of the afternoon. Beers to suit all tastes and a great sample of craft beer in Sydney in 2020.

Terry and Dave provided a great day out!! Great brewery’s all day and a day full of jokes!! Great bucks party

592martyl February 2020

Terry was an informative and passionate guide for our tour. We did Sauce, Wayward & Akasha (including lunch at the Forest Lodge Hotel). Was good being pushed to try beers outside the comfort zone and therefore also educational. Cheers !

liam_r_1975 February 2020

Terry was our guide and was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the brewing process. His Dad-jokes were pretty terrible but in a good way. For our tastes I think there was a little too much information, particularly at the second brewery Modus Operandi where after a long drive we just wanted to enjoy a few drinks and the very nice food. Towards the end of the tour I think he started to realise this and the provision of drinks picked up pace, and the spiel lessened giving us a better chance of enjoying the brew houses, each others company and the day overall.

craigcE9881BH January 2020

Started in city to meet with Terry our tour guide at 10 Birthday tour for a mates 60th Driving into the “shire” Terry made everybody welcome and had everyone give their experience of beer, great ice breaker Started at Hairymans brewery at Taren point Great beer, excellent explanation of how beer / craft beer is produced Lunch at the Prince hotel in Kirrawee, always good Next to Shark Island brewery, again excellent beer and talk, this venue also supports south coast wine producers with samples available for non beer drinkers Last stop at Southern Road, couldn’t fault their product either, first time there, will be going back Overall, the three places all producing excellent beer, all with various business modules to suit their target market Dave’s tours was great, Terry friendly, knowledgeable Would recommend this tour given the experience today Will do the inner city and northern tours soon

anthonymatai November 2019

Great tour led by Terry across 3 craft breweries - including lunch at the Hensen. Willie the Boatman in their new premises was the best starting point - try the Louie XPA before finishing at the Rocks Brewery and the Boxer Red Ale.

bullrafferty November 2019

We went with Mat and a small group made up of my family. We had a great day, learned a lot about bear and sampled a huge variety at the same time. Recommend it to anyone who likes beer

KevinH299 November 2019

We had a group of 6 on the tour which was hosted by Terry. We had a great afternoon. Terry was a tremendous host - knowledgeable and informative about the breweries and beer, and also attentive to make sure we always had enough of the ‘samples’. Would recommend the tour for anyone that has an interest in beer.

Stephen P November 2019

There are plenty of great breweries in Sydney's inner South / West. I didn't know which ones we would go to and I was pleasantly surprised by which ones we went to: Frenchies, Yulli's Brews, Willie The Boatman. Dave (aka Terry) is a friendly and knowledgable guide. He was able to tell us about the different styles of beer we were trying. At the second venue he spoke about how beer is brewed, how different grains make different flavours. Didn't say much about how hops and yeast work but I'm a bit of a beer geek so he wouldn't have told me anything new anyway :) If you like beer you'll enjoy this.

Tony M October 2019

What a fun day we enjoyed with friends and other beer lovers in superb weather ... so well organised and professionally run. Matt was a natural host easily translating some of the complexities of beer making with his wealth of knowledge as a brewer. Lunch was great and we loved our beer stops in Marrickville and Newtown tasting the flavours of the many ales and lagers on offer. Worth every cent and highly recommended to all beer lovers!

Wendy L September 2019

The Mattman (Matthew Lawrence) was down-to-earth and knowledgeable. It was a well-organised tour, with a good flow and variety of beers to keep everyone jolly and merry, yet it was an educational at the same time. Definitely a great way to get beer-educated for a novice beer drinker. Last but not least, great company with new found friends from Arizona. Thank you Dave’s Tours. Will certainly recommend the 3x3 Sydney Brewery Tour to all! 6 stars from the bottom of my beer glass!

gooddaytours August 2019

I enjoy craft beer and I know it is such a trendy outing finding local brewery not only Australia but All of the World. Terry was great tour guide who explain every single all curious questions with even historical background knowledge. We learn how to make beer from the scratch and we taste, smell, touch and compare just like real science. How amazing I had all the end of the day. The venues we went to are very hidden I don't think I could find out by myself. Thank you Dave your itinerary is fantastic and well organised. You made my day and will not forget forever.

Marc D August 2019

Terry was a great tour guide who gave us a overview of the brewing process for the different beers. Tour included 4 breweries and lunch on the Northern Beaches. Different beers tasted at each brewery which gave us an appreciation of what varieties you can select at each brewery, in family friendly atmosphere.

gareth801 May 2019

The tour was well organised, ran on time and was very informative! Led by a knowledgeable guide (Matt) and supported by his 2IC (Rob), both we’re very enthusiastic and it made for a great day!

Lynne H April 2019

We love pub / beer tours. The extra inside information you acquire via your guide gives you a feel for the city. I would recommend you book your tour as one of the FIRST things you do in a city, so you can then plan your trip around what you learn. THIS TOUR IS GREAT!
