Best pubs and breweries in NSW
There's no better way to enjoy a beer than on the verandah of an historic pub in regional NSW. At a great pub, you'll enjoy not just good beer but good service, food, ambience and, if you're really lucky, something else â an idyllic location or unique style.
Some good NSW pubs are the Jack Duggans Irish Pub in Bathurst, Mount Kembla Village Hotel near Wollongong and The Royal Hotel in Moree. Great beachside pubs include Patonga Beach Hotel on the Central Coast, Sawtell Hotel near Port Macquarie and The Dockyard at Newcastle.
Regional breweries are also on the rise in NSW and you'll find them sprinkled around the State. In Mudgee enjoy a local beer at the Mudgee Brewing Company; don't miss a local brew at Wollongong's Five Islands Brewery or BlueTongue Brewery in the Hunter Valley. The Northern Rivers Brewing Company is at Alstonville while the Byron Bay Brewery has a delicious Byron Bay Premium Ale.
