WHERE YOU WILL GO*
Already famous for its wines and providing a spectacular venue for world-class concerts within the vineyards, in 2014 Hope Estate made a foray into the world of beer brewing. Hosting major performers such as Bruce Springsteen, the inspiration behind their beers stems from their passion for creating the perfectly matched craft beer and concert experience. With up to 12 different beers on tap, Hope Brewhouse has a variety of award-winning beers to be sampled while taking in the beautiful Hunter Valley scenery.
Located within the Hunter Valley Crowne Plaza, the 12 + award-winning Lovedale Brewery is a must see. Showcasing up to 7 craft beers at any one time, there is always something to satisfy the beer connoisseur and the beer curious. The brewery also has its own bottling line, meaning take away beers from Lovedale are some of the freshest in the region.
Located at Potter’s Resort, surrounded by the old brick remnants of the pottery kilns, Hunter Beer Co is the oldest operating brewery in the Hunter Valley. The brewery produces a range of world-renowned, award-winning beers, and a visit here is an experience no beer lover should miss. Hunter Beer Co produces several signature beers, such as their German-Style Kolsch, and their crowd favourite; the Slaked Magpie Vanilla Porter.
WHEN YOU CAN GO
*WHERE WE GO EACH DAY CAN CHANGE – Whilst we would love all our breweries to open everyday, not all can. And because our tours are truly behind the scenes experiences sometimes our plans need to change to accommodate brewery operations. Whatever happens, rest assured you will get to experience our local beer scene at its best with a guaranteed visit to three of the hottest local beer spots around.
