Newcastle Craft Beer and Food TourThis half day tour around Newcastle's best breweries is the ultimate mate date, with even the most dedicated foodies set to be delighted.
What to Expect
Discover Newcastle's craft beer scene, paired with some of the finest local produce, on this half-day guided tasting tour. Go behind the scenes at four of Newcastle's hidden gems as you sample some flavourful brews with gourmet food pairing. What better way to spend an afternoon tasting the best of 'Newie'.
We all know beer is the best, and the only thing that can make it better is when it's matched with food. Join your expert local guide on this palate-pleasing tour visiting four venues in Newcastle and Newcastle East with local craft beers matched with food in three of the four locations. The final stop is a craft brewery where you will enjoy a tour of the brewing facility and a tasting paddle of their fabulous frothy brews. Don’t worry about the extra calories, you will be walking so we are pretty sure you’ll burn it all off.
These beer and food matches will delight everyone from the casual beer sipper to the well-travelled foodie. Think sausages and Saisons, Berliner Weisse with brie cheese, or maybe even a porter matched with a pistachio ice cream sandwich... delicious.
Because these beer tours are truly behind the scenes experiences, sometimes our plans need to change to accommodate brewery operations. Whilst these changes are rare, we do reserve the right to make them. If you do have a must-see beer spot, please let us know when making your booking and we’ll do all we can to make it happen. Below is a list of the venues you may visit in further detail.
Staying true to its grand history dating back to the 1800s, Lucky Hotel underwent a major renovation in 2014 to restore the original facade and bring the famous hotel back to life. Contrasted against a trendy new fit-out of elegant modern designs and features, the hotel offers a luminous mix of old and new.
Bringing craft brewing and locally sourced food to the heart of Newcastle, this restored historic industrial building is a must-see. Genuine, handmade, and local, it is Newcastle’s quintessential brewery.
WIL & SONS
Wil & Sons is a locally owned family business turning 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry into a genuine craft beer and burger restaurant. It is the ideal choice when it comes to micro-brewed beer suitably paired with great food and a superb atmosphere.
THE GRAIN STORE NEWCASTLE
Located in Newcastle’s food and cafe hub of the Historic East End; with high ceilings, Art Deco tiling and timber flooring, The Grain Store is the perfect site for the craft-beer focused restaurant it now is. It oozes character and style, and its walls tell a story. The Grain Store boasts a tap list totalling 21, featuring 100% independently owned and Australian brewed craft beers. This makes it one of the largest craft beer tap lists in Australia.
