Northern Beaches residents rejoice. If you've already made your way through the area's selection of top-notch beachside breweries, there's another spot to add to your must-try list — Freshwater Brewing Company. It unveiled a 120-capacity taproom and restaurant in 2022, pouring its approachable craft beer creations.

This fresh-fish face on the local brewing scene was established in 2020, releasing its first beer, the Freshie Pils. Since then, the Freshwater Brewing Company stocklist has expanded to include two more pilsners — the Pacific Pils and the Duke's Czech Pilsner — the Mexican-style Wedge Cerveza and the Secrets Hazy Pale.

All five beers are available across the Freshwater Brewing Co's 14 taps, accompanied by a bright, welcoming space and a memorable food menu.

Behind the bar sits a range of wines, curated alongside a bright summery spritz to accompany frothy beers on warm Sydney days.

"Community is in the brand's DNA, and this gives us an opportunity to create a space for our friends, family and neighbours, and create a brewery for all that embodies the Australian surf lifestyle," Freshwater Brewing Company co-founder Jonny Bucknall said.

The best part of all this? Freshwater Brewing Co is pooch-friendly, so you'll never have to leave your best four-legged mate behind again.
