About the Activity:
After meeting your guide at the Keg & Brew Hotel, its off to our first stop, Young Henry's brewery at Newtown. Here you will learn all about beer, beer history and what goes into making it, with of course a beer in your hand. With a head full of beer knowledge we get behind the scenes and go deep inside the brewery to see where it all happens. Out the other side of the brewery and back in the tasting bar, it's time to taste more of the Young Henrys range before we head off to lunch.
2. Lunch is at The Henson at Marrickville. Originally called the Henson Park Hotel, it opened in 1936 near the football ground of the same name - home to the legendary Newtown Jets. It is an old school pub with an excellent menu of both food and craft beers. Why not try the famous "knuckle sandwich"? Wagyu brisket on rye with fennel coleslaw, Swiss cheese and smoky mayo.
3. Staying in Marrickville, a short trip down the road takes you to the Batch Brewing Company. Here you can chat with the owners, Andrew and Chris, about how they started up brewing and setting up in a converted smash repair shop. Then retire to sample some of their wares in the tasting bar and maybe try hand at a game of 'cornhole'!
4. Time to squeeze in one more brewery, the excellent Rocks Brewing in Alexandria. This Australian-owned and operated craft brewery is lead by fifth and sixth generation convict descendants. Begin with a tour of their state-of-the-art brewery before trying "the kinds of ales your grandfather and your grandfather’s father used to drink". They also have an impressive food menu if you are still hungry!
5. Finally it is time to head back toward Central for final stop, the Royal Albert Hotel in Surry Hills. Part of the local scene since 1927, it offers a stunning array of craft beers and ciders in a cosy setting. Well known for its "Tap Takeover" evenings, where a craft brewer gets exclusive access to their eight taps and two hand pumps, it is the perfect place to end the day.
At the end of the day you have the option of ending their tour at the Royal Albert Hotel or being dropped off at the nearby Central Station.
