Can't trip all the way out to Katoomba's Mountain Culture brewpub? Well, the brewery's Emu Plains location is here to save your beer-focused explorations. The Factory, as it's called, is open to the public on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from lunch till dinner — with takeaway or dine-in options, so you're really covered on all bases.

From the outside, it looks like any other industrial building. It's inside where the magic happens. See where the Mountain Culture crew brew the lush IPAs, crisp pales, wild ales and pillowy oat creams that they're famous for. Then, settle in for a fresh pour of the core range, seasonal specials, weekly new releases and whatever other experiments are on the go.

Plus, they've got wines, cider and craft non-alc options. There's always a food truck on site, slinging everything from barbecued meats to woodfired pizza and even Polish fare — all bona fide fantastic pairings for your frothy.
