It’s exciting times for 4 Pines and the Northern Beaches community with three new venues set to open across the Northern Beaches.
Joining the original Manly Brew Pub and Brookvale Brewery Truck Bar, that launched last year, will be a barrel-aged beer concept in Newport, a beer and bread hospitality hub in Belrose and a new eatery underneath the Brew Pub in Manly.
“Barrel-aged beers, a range of breads and a plethora of new dishes have been trialled in the Manly Brew Pub over the last few years, so it’s fair to say these concepts have been a while in development.
“Vigorous testing was carried out on a range of subjects including Northern Beaches locals and unsuspecting tourists,” says 4 Pines Hospitality Ops Manager Sarah Turner, who is proud to say all results were positive.
“4 Pines has come a long way since the Brew Pub launched in 2008, with our Keller Door range, the Vostok Space Beer, and the Truck Bar opening in our Brookvale Brewery last year.
“We’re looking forward to spreading the love across the rest of the beaches. We don’t want to do something new unless it’s an organic fit for 4 Pines and we’ve had the tick of approval from the local community.”
4 Pines Manly Underground
43-45 E Esplanade, Manly NSW 2095 (opening soon)
Set to launch in spring, a new eatery where Out of Africa once was in Manly, Underground will be open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Long term 4 Pines Executive Chef Rob de Paulo heads up the kitchen which will be a step away from the pub-focused dishes from their upstairs counterpart, with more of a produce-driven and seasonal menu.
4 Pines Newport Barrelhouse
313 Barrenjoey Rd, Newport NSW 2106 (opening soon)
Barrel-aged beer was never part of a masterplan at 4 Pines but brewer Garrett Sherman’s sheer willpower to get this over the line made it impossible to ignore. He has been tinkering around with recipes over the last few years and his experimentation has created some absolutely mouth-watering (sometimes literally, always figuratively) results. Using wine and whisky barrels means there’s always some tweaks to be made to flavour profiles but this ongoing refinement is producing a better class of beer. By the time the venue launches early summer, there will be a range of top-notch barrel-aged beers available that have been aging for anything from six to 24 months. Although 4 Pines released their first barrel-aged bottled beer, Oaked Baltic Porter, through their small batch Keller Door range late last year, this venue, located in the heart of Newport on Barrenjoey Road, will be the first of its kind in the state, if not Australia.
4 Pines Belrose
Cnr Glen Street, Blackbutts Rd, Belrose NSW 2085 (opening 2017)
This beer and bread concept will open in the Glen Street Theatre in Belrose in 2017. Bread-making is a natural progression for 4 Pines who have made their own stout bread in the Manly Brew Pub since 2010, using the same principles of craftsmanship they've honed in brewing, for bread. As well as selling fresh bread daily, you’ll be able to pop into 4 Pines Belrose for a drink and dinner pre or post theatre, a mid-week lunch, a quick coffee or a cheeky pint. Open seven days a week from brunch to dinner.
