Sydney’s 4 Pines Brewing Company will expand its Northern Beaches footprint into three new hospitality venues over the coming months.
The venues comprise a barrelhouse in Newport, a beer and bread concept in Belrose and a new eatery underneath the BrewPub in Manly.
They are in addition to the original Manly BrewPub and Brookvale Brewery Truck Bar, the latter of which was established at the company’s Brookvale production brewery last year.
“When Brookvale took off, it swallowed capital for the next few years, in a pretty major way,” 4 Pines ‘Brew Publican’ Ged Dore told Australian Brews News.
“Because the national sales grew so rapidly, they had to keep on updating the brewery.
“We were always going to get back into the hospitality space. We looked at different areas in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane and we just kept on coming back to the Northern Beaches,” he said.
More detail on the new venues:
- 4 Pines Manly Underground – A new eatery in the space formerly occupied by Out of Africa restaurant, Underground will be open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Long term 4 Pines Executive Chef Rob de Paulo heads up the kitchen with a seasonal menu. To launch in spring;
- 4 Pines Newport Barrelhouse – A restaurant offering 4 Pines’ core range complemented by beers aged in an onsite barrel room. “By the time the venue launches early summer, there will be a range of top-notch barrel-aged beers available that have been ageing for anything from six to 24 months,” 4 Pines says;
- 4 Pines Belrose – A beer and bread concept opening in the Glen Street Theatre in Belrose in 2017. Open seven days a week from brunch to dinner, the venue will be suited to drinks and dinner pre or post theatre, a mid-week lunch, coffee or a “cheeky pint”. Fresh bread will be available daily.
