Established in 2014, Modus Operandi is an award winning, family owned craft brewery based on the Northern Beaches of Sydney.
Always dreaming but finally formalising the concept in 2012, it all started in a motor home travelling around the U S of A, blaring Creedence and delving deeper into the craft revolution. We discovered every nook and cranny of the USA craft beer world for six months, brewing, talking, cleaning, talking, cleaning, brewing, and yes, drinking a lot of beer (tough I know).
We returned home to our beloved Northern Beaches with heads full of beer lovin and some very talented American brewers in our bags. Hailing from Oskar Blues Brewery these guys have serious street cred, know good beer and brew even better. They have taught us and our Aussie brewers the real art of craft beer, using first class materials and practices. We have also taught them how to surf, the culinary delight that is a meat pie and how sunscreen is not negotiable in Australia. Its a win win situation.
We are larrikins at heart, but when it comes to our Modus Operandi (Latin for Method of Operation) which put simply is, beer first, no shortcuts, this is where we get real. Fresh live yeast flown in from the USA, the finest specialty malts and hops from all over the world, brewed and packaged in our brewery and permanently kept cold so we don’t have to put preservatives in, means we deliver fresh real craft beer to you. These methods of operation cost more, but we think its worth it. You be the judge.
