Smack bang in the heart of Manly Wharf’s heaving hospitality scene is the relaxed and ever trendy 4 Pines Brewpub, perfectly capturing that summer afternoon casual pub pop-in all year round.
The brainchild of father and son duo, Jaron and Steve Mitchell, 4 Pines was the result of their frustration at Sydney’s lack of noteworthy, interesting beer. Their vision took the form of the modern, on-site microbrewery that now serves as immensely popular upstairs bar. Here, you can sit along the communal timber counters on the sunlit balcony or amongst the kegs and barrels whilst watching the brewers work their magic in crafting the perfect ice-cold ale.
The short walk downstairs will take you to the Keller Door, the cheeky, eccentric bar that showcases the 4 Pines boutique range by the same name. Intended to challenge beer enthusiasts with German style lagers and innovative craft brews, the Keller Door is the perfect place to knock back a cold one and watch the world go by.
Communal eating and drinking is at the heart of the 4 Pines Brewpub, with exciting menus in each bar that showcase a fresh takes on pub classics. Envisioned as the place where family and friends ‘end up with dirty hands, faces and grins’, small plates like the pita breads with babaganoush, hummus and muhammara, or tiger prawns with chilli jam will leave no face unsmiling.
Alternatively, plan your visit to the Brewpub to coincide with one of their enticing specials, like Tuesday’s two for one feast, or a pint on the house with any main meal purchased on Mondays.
When it comes to beer, the staff at 4 Pines Brewpub can talk the talk. Passionate about all things beer, the team are constantly working with innovative flavours to change your perception of the humble ale. If you never thought you’d be one to fancy a tea infused brew or perhaps a coffee kolsch, now is an exceptional time to try.
Situated just a short walk from the busy Manly Wharf, it’s just too easy to stop in for a drop and watch the sun go down over the ocean with a parma and a pint in hand.
