4 Pines Beer & Burger Manly
This northern beaches bar is slinging burgers piled high with cornflake-coated fried chicken, and sweet and sour pork belly.
Sydney's 4 Pines brewery is no longer just about beers — now it has entered the burger game, too. After launching a beer and burger restaurant in Surry Hills last year, the brewery has opened a second one underneath its original Manly brewpub. Here, thirsty patrons will find the full 4 Pines core range and limited releases flowing through the taps, alongside some seriously stacked combos of meat and bread.
Think dishes like cornflake-coated buttermilk fried chicken burgers with chilli and peanut butter ($16); sweet and sour pork belly topped with Asian slaw, fresh chilli, yuzu mayo and pickles ($15); and both a regular cheeseburger ($15) made with Angus beef and a double-sized version that also features maple bacon ($19). Sides-wise, you can opt for panko-fried IPA jalapeños, a serve of chicken wings, chargrilled halloumi and wedges of iceberg lettuce topped with grated egg and blue cheese ranch.
Apart from beer, there's also a modest supply of wines and spirits on offer, plus a cocktail menu that makes ample use of ginger beer.
The new bar has a similar fit-out to the brewery's other instalments which include the Manly Brewpub, Brookvale Truck Barand the Newport barrel-aged outpost — plus the Manly ferry bars and the SCG craft beer stall which opened in April last year.
