Modus Operandi Brewing Company
Tuck into freshly brewed beers — and mac ’n’ cheese croquettes, salt and vinegar wings and soft shell crab burgers.
Hoppy and full of flavour, IPAs date back to the mid-19th century. Modus Operandi's version doesn't boast quite that lengthy a history — the northern beaches brewery opened in 2012 itself — but it's a fine addition to the fold.
An American-style tipple that has picked up both awards and a hefty following, the Sonic Prayer IPA started as a limited-edition brew; however it has now firmly found its place among Modus' year-round core range. That's great news if you're looking for a malty beer with a hint of citrus, peach, passionfruit, stone fruit and pine, and if you're a fan of Mona Vale-based outfit. When it comes to the latter in general, this brewery takes its US influences seriously — even flying in live yeast from America to use in its beers.
Located on Harkeith Street, Modus' HQ also features a brewpub, so you can settle in and drink beers onsite — and tuck into mac 'n' cheese croquettes, salt and vinegar wings, soft shell crab burgers and eight types of pizza. Expect specials each week night, as well as regular ticketed masterclasses.
