Gaz took us for a great tour around Sydney’s Inner West breweries, stopping at Batch, Stockade and Sauce. Got to go behind the scenes and see the brewing equipment up close and learnt a whole heap about beer! A great afternoon! Highly recommended!

Robbie was/is a brilliant guide full of information and interesting anecdotes told in an entertaining way. The tour was extremely relaxed and as there were only 3 people on the tour, it felt like 4 mates heading around the Rocks enjoying each other's company.

Had an absolutely amazing time! It was just me, my significant other and our delightful tour guide Craig. He was just one in a million and each pub story he told us was so detailed and his enthusiasm and excitement is infectious and just rubs off on you! A wonderful way to not only experience a tour personalised to the poeple on it but an amazing way to uncover the history of Sydney and the Rocks!

Great afternoon, Dave (Greg) kept our group entertained. As someone who lives in Sydney and spent time here it was really interesting to hear the history behind the area. Greg was very knowledgable about the beer and was cool find a few that I hadn't tried. You'll enjoy it not just for the beer but the history also.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your recent Balmain pub tour with Gregg. It's great to hear that, as a local, you were able to get a better understanding for Balmains history, not to much the great local beers on offer. We'll definitely pass on your kind words to Gregg, and we hope to see you on one of our other awesome tours in the future. Thanks also for supporting local tourism at this time. Cheers
