Brewery tours & craft beer tastings in Newcastle

Love a craft beer? What about seeing how a brewery does its thing? Look no further because Ted’s Tours has an almighty offering with their Brewgustation tours across Newcastle.

“Not everyone loves wine – we get that! We don’t want groups of pals who are more ‘frothy’ to feel left out. So, we’ve put together a little offering specifically catered to those who LOVE a craft beer.”

In recent years, the local brewery scene has boomed with craft breweries popping up all over town. Local-born tour business, Ted’s Tours saw this as an opportunity to get the locals and visitors making the most of our ever-growing brewery community, launching their Brewgustations in March this year.

Known for their specially curated Hunter Valley tours, the locally run company is the brainchild of fun-loving young couple, Ted and Zac, and with a love to share the best of the best when it comes to beer across Newcastle, Brewgustation was born.

“We have been ‘killing’ it in the Hunter for a few years now and have noticed how big a role breweries play for Novocastrians! The decision was rather easy to kick it off in Newcastle as we have become a craft beer hub. And who doesn’t love pub grub and snacks on the way?”

So, what exactly is a Brewgustation?

Think a wine tour, but with beer; and some of the best beer if we do say so ourselves. Get picked up directly from your Newcastle location and what follows is a day designed for you with absolutely zero hassle. Let the Brewgustation team scoot you around the streets of Newcastle to find all the best-hidden craft beer gems and street food along the way.  

Joining forces with all of the best venues across town, you will get a thorough overview of Newcastle’s craft beer offering. You could be taste testing some of the offerings at Shout Brewing; a small batch craft brewery based over in Mayfield West.

Another long-term favourite is the first modern brewery in Newcastle’s CBD; Foghorn Brewhouse. Located right in the heart of the city, the Foghorn team has become known for brewing some of the best beers across town.

Heading out to Beresfield you’ll sample some of the craft beers from Maltnhops Brewhaus with their offering of 11 taps; with something for the craft beer aficionado to the complete novice.

Up next, you could be exploring Styx Brewery, a hidden gem in Carrington and one of the coolest spaces we’ve got here in Newcastle. Sit back and relax in the Styx lounge room as you enjoy the local brews.

Finish up by mixing a little spice into your brewery tour and drop on into Earp Distilling Co. to get your tummies filled up with delectable street food and if you’re up for it, maybe even a little gin tasting!

“We are lucky here in Newcastle to be growing a craft beer hub and stoked to have some of the best breweries in town join our forces.”

Each tour is completely customisable, so really, the day is your oyster! The team pride itself on filling your brewery adventure with street food, pub grub, snacks, beer paddles, and even gin flights.
