Sydney Brewery

After opening its sister Lovedale Brewery at Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley in March 2014, Sydney Brewery has gone from strength to strength. On the back of a swag of medals in the three years that followed – 77 in total including nine trophies and ten golds by the end of 2017 – they have expanded the Lovedale facility to triple its capacity and installed a state-of-the-art bottling and canning line.

The original Schwartz Brewery was opened in 2005, with an 800 litre wood clad brewhouse from the UK that supplied not only the hotel bars upstairs but also many others around NSW within the Schwartz Family Company hotel chain. Sydney Brewery headquarters are now in Sydney’s World Square, where you'll also find The Cidery bar and kitchen, all part of SFC owned Rydges World Square.

In line with the breweries rebranding as Sydney Brewery in 2013, the beers took on names to reflect the brewery's original home. Today, there are eight kinds of "suburban" beer, including the most popular Surry Hills Pils, Paddo Pale, Glamarama Summer Ale, Pyrmont Rye IPA and Darlo Dark, along with the multi-trophy winning Lovedale Lager, which was born out of the new Lovedale Brewery. More recent additions include Pittwater Bitter and Sydney Session Lager, as well as a regular array of seasonals like Bondi Belgian Blonde and Potts Point Porter.

Then there is Sydney Cider, which has also collected multiple trophies since arriving on the scene its hybrid offspring, Agave Ginger Cider, which has quickly made its mark too. Completing the fruity fleet is pear cider Manly Perry, launched in 2017 and collecting a bronze soon after at the Sydney Royal Beer & Cider Show to confirm Sydney Brewery’s excellent cider making credentials.

Sydney Brewery Lovedale Lager

Given their brewery is no longer in Sydney yet most of its beers and ciders take their names from areas of Sydney, it seems only right that the relocated Sydney Brewery (formerly Schwartz) should honour its new home in the Hunter Valley with one beer. It does so with the Lovedale Lager, a faithful interpretation of the classic German beers that, along with those inspired by Czech pilsners, took over the world. The beer is doing a good job of honouring Lovedale in more than just name too: it has been… Read more

Sydney Brewery Surry Hills Pils

Brewer's notes: The big floral aromatic hop character doesn't fight with the oh-so-rich malty mouth flavour, it dances with it. Then there's the fruity spicy bitterness that brings it all together, and finishes it off beautifully.… Read more

Sydney Brewery Paddo Pale

Brewer's note: Like the suburb it was named after, this ale arguably has it all. Somehow though everything's kept in just the right balance and proportions. Which of course only goes to make it more desirable and appealing. So, on first tasting, look for a true citrus and floral ale aroma, but then stand back for a full malt experience in the mouth, followed by a big bitter finish Hey, that's great. Our Paddo Pale is triple hopped with Cascade, Galaxy and Amarillo hop flavours. See, it's got it all.… Read more

Sydney Brewery Glamarama

Brewer's notes: If it's not the look that's hot it's the weather. Or being summer in Sydney's east, it's both. Sizzling sultrily hot. Boy, do you need a beer. So here's to another perfect Summer Ale! Crisp and clean, light and refreshing, like the way you like your waves. And as for that cheeky little touch of tropical fruit and pineapple you detect every time you take a sip? That's nature's way of telling you it's going to be a long hot summer. But just stay cool and reach for another.… Read more
