Six String Brewing is proudly the NSW’s Central Coasts first home grown craft brewery with our brewery and tasting room in Erina. We are all about great beer and great music, a combination which we think is the ultimate collaboration.

The Brewery

Launched in late 2012 by Chris Benson, an avid home brewer and school mate Adam Klasterka, Six String Brewing Co has built a strong following producing full flavoured or as we like to call them Amplified Ales and continually brewing up something new, different and often out of the box of your standard beers. With the help of Ryan Harris who came onboard the Brewery has had an epic few years continually pushing the limits of the breweries capacity and expanding into cans so the beers can be distributed further a field.

Our beers

All our beers are preservative free, unpasteurised and unfiltered, giving the fullest possible flavour to our range. Our award-winning core range has four beers; Coastie, specially brewed for the Central Coast fitting right in to the beach lifestyle and synonymous with the Central Coast, TPA ~ Tropical Pale Ale, Pale Ale and Dark Red IPA. The brewery also produces a Limited Edition Seasonal range and Small batch brews. These are released for a limited time, often one off brew, sometimes one-off kegs,always limited edition and never dull.

Tasting room

The Six String tasting room, onsite at our brewery in Erina, gives you the full brewery experience. Here you can learn about the brewing process, touch, smell, taste the ingredients and sample our beers, all while watching the brewery in action. With over 12 taps including a hand pump and if you come on the right day, Real Ales served straight from the cask, the beers are always changing and with the brewers working on the other side of the bar you can chat all things beer while work your way through them all. The tasting room and restaurant, run by Donnie Eats, is open to the public for tastings and takeaway beers and for lunch and Dinner Wednesday to Sunday. We are a family friendly venue, so kids are welcome.
