Bucketty’s Brewing Co. & Freshwater Brewing Co

Brookvale has long been known as the industrial area of Sydney’s Northern Beaches, but with no less than six breweries springing up in recent years, it’s quickly becoming known as Brew-Vale, and this weekend Sally takes you to two of the best.

Opened in 2021, Bucketty’s Brewing Co has made a name for itself with its wide selection of brilliant beers, fantastic meals from its onsite food truck and as a live music venue. With a pool table, dart boards and a play area for kids, Bucketty’s has something for everyone – you can even bring your pets! And if you want to know all about ales, join Sally as she takes the Bucketty’s weekly brewery tour to learn the basics of beer making.  

A three-minute walk away is Freshwater Brewing Co, Brookvale’s newest keg on the block. Inspired by its namesake suburb, the brewery oozes beachy vibes with its pastel tones and laid back atmosphere. Offering some amazing ales, lagers and pilsners and a nostalgic Aussie-as food menu including an amazing Fish Finger sanger, Freshwater Brewing Co is the perfect destination for a relaxed weekend catch-up with friends and family.
