At the Hunter Beer Company join one of the Brewers for a tour and tasting. Taste and smell the tropical fruit from the hops and taste the nutty, biscuit and coffee flavours that come from the malt. These flavours are matched with the beers they flavour. The tour is informal... ask as many questions as you like! Their passionate team love to share their knowledge, experience and all round beery love and buy your favourite ale!

Hop over to Hope Estate Brewhouse where winemaking brings a new approach to brewing adding new dimensions to old favourites. There's a maniacal level of productivity in the Brewhouse with a relentless stream of new brews - at any time there are 12 different beers & ciders on the go. Get an insight into the Brewhouse operations and choose 4 of the beers to taste in the new Beer Hall with nothing between you and the pure beer flavour! And grab a Growler to take away!

Last stop is the Sydney Brewery Hunter Valley where the talented Brewmasters handcraft award winning craft beer & cider in the beautiful grounds of the Crowne Plaza, Hunter Valley – the perfect Lovedale experience.  Sample their range of seasonal brews and cider over a  private tasting at the Lovedale Bar where the beers are served from tank to tap, taking home whichever you choose!
