We decided to take a trip to Manly to visit the 4 pines brewery on the West Esplanade, Manly. On a lovely sunny winters afternoon, we got lucky and pinched a table just inside the big glass windows with a great view over the pathway and street beneath. On tap they had their base range with a few seasonal ‘Kellerdoor’ beers consisting of the XO sauce spiced amber ale, a Belgian blonde ale (which was our favourite) and a new world cask ale from the hand pump. The bar staff were exceptional, in particular a very welcoming guy called Mark who gave us a quick brewery tour and a run down of their new seasonals to come. Very nice bloke. Great food, even better beer and very good atmosphere. These guys are running a very good brewery here, definitely worth the visit.
