Boutique Brews

The Shire is home to three microbreweries where local craftsmen share their skills and serve up beers that are seeped in community spirit and represent our home in name and taste.

Sunday Road Brewing

Sunday Road Brewing is a short walk from Kirrawee station, and is set back from the road along a driveway lined with glowing fairy lights. It's the perfect spot to spend an afternoon tasting the beers on tap including award winning craft brews Enigma and Blackwoods Ale, as well as new-comers Sunseeker India Pale Ale and Coffee Lager.

Local Brad Walker – who grew up in the Shire and lives here with his young family – has been brewing beers since 2014 and opened Sunday Road in March 2016. “We love being part of the Sydney beer scene,” said Brad.“We’re very proud that through winning some major awards this year we are letting the rest of Australia know that the Sutherland Shire is producing some world class beers.”

You'll find the Taproom at 147 Bath Road Kirrawee. It's open Thursday to Sunday with a great line up of rotating food trucks and live music. 

Opening Hours with food trucks: 

Thursday 3:00pm - 7.00pm

Friday 12.00pm – 10.00pm

Saturday 12.00pm – 10.00pm

Sunday 12.00pm – 10.00pm

Shark Island Brewing Company

Shark Island Brewing Company takes its name from the reef break just off South Cronulla Point and was the first of the microbreweries to call the Shire home, opening in 2015. Owners, locals Peebs and Driza, name their rotating brews after local surf spots, with favourites like the Sandshoes Golden Ale, the Alley Texas Brown Ale and The Point Dark Ale.

Shark Island Brewing Company is open Thursday to Sunday and hosts a variety of food trucks - wings, burgers, slow cooked pork and schnitzel - every weekend.

The cellar door is at Unit 8/29-33 Waratah St Kirrawee – just down the road from Kirrawee Bunnings.

Hairyman Brewery

A brewery that welcomes both kids and dogs to its cellar door, Hairyman has eight beers on tap plus seasonals on rotation. The brewery is on the Woolooware Bay shared pathway – close to Shark Park and the Woolooware Bay development - and is popular with bike riders and walkers, especially at weekends when on-site food trucks sell a delicious variety of street food.

After 20 years in the building industry and an even longer passion for brewing, owner and Woolooware local Andy followed his passion and built the Hairyman brewery himself. Andy and his wife Joan began producing their own range later that year and now boast a bunch of award-winning craft beer. “Our most popular at the brewery is Follet's Fable (Pacific Lager) which has citrus and spice tones and is pale with a golden hue. Our extra pale ale is also popular - it’s our 9th beer and is aptly named IX PA, and is fruity and tangy,” said Andy.

“Beyond the brewery, our hybrid Pop Ale, is gaining in popularity. It’s a combination of Creaming Soda and Craft Beer and hits a sweet spot with a variety of craft drinkers.”

Named after The Wild Man of Botany Bay who is said to have roamed the area and was captured and sent to England in 1800s, Hairyman is the perfect spot to catch up with mates. The Brewery is at Unit 10, 12-14 Northumberland Rd, Caringbah.

Opening hours:

Wednesday: 12pm-5.00pm

Thursday: 10am-7.00pm

Friday & Saturday (with food trucks): 10am-7.00pm

Sunday (with food trucks): 10am-5.00pm
