Duration: 3 hours
Meeting Point: Memorial Compass, First Fleet Park
The Rocks is a wealth of culture, teeming with history, and ready for you to explore. A stroll around the area will open up a window into Sydney as a city. Many of Sydney’s most established businesses can be found at The Rocks, including some of its oldest pubs.
On this tour, you will visit six historic pubs to learn more about their individual histories and how they have contributed to Sydney. You’ll learn about the history of beer itself, how it is brewed, why it has become such a significant part of Australian culture, and how this has all come to contribute to the growing interest in craft beers.
There will be an opportunity to purchase samples of the beers that interest you the most at each pub, and some food will be provided.
There will be some walking involved on the day, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella if the weather calls for it. Tour price includes some food items, but does not include beer samples. All participants must be over 18 years of age.
If you’re looking for a few hours of fun on the weekend, meeting new people, and discovering new things about your city, Foodi tours will show you where to start.

Absolutely fantastic! Worth every cent paid for it.
The host, the pubs, the food, the quantity of time spent.
David - our tour guide was absolutely fantastic, welcoming, inclusive of all the people, knowledgeable in beers and history, conscious and always checking / aware of his guests.
What impressed me the most was David's ability to observe what guest drank and then a guest would go up to him and ask what should 'I'i drink and he would recommend a great option.
David is also very interactive and pleasant.
Would DEFINITELY go and do this tour again! 5/5 by Monica Sewter 16-1-2016
