Hope Brewery & Distillery


Hope Estate is a family-owned and operated working winery, brewery and distillery perfectly located in the heart of Hunter Valley wine country. Award-winning craft beer, Estate-grown wine, premium Australian grain spirits and home to Australia’s largest purpose-built outdoor winery concert amphitheatre with the biggest concerts going around.

Hope Brewery opened in 2014 and kicked off their range with a whole lot of hoppy ales, distinctively recognisable by their black cans and amp design – a homage to Hope’s love of music. Since then they’ve been satisfying a desire for new beers and new styles including NEIPAs, sours, trophy-winning stouts and even Australia’s strongest IPA.

Mid-2020 saw the inception of Hope Distillery launching with a range of premium Australian grain spirits including Gin, Vodka and a Single Malt Moonshine.

Our newly renovated Cellar Door offers a variety of experiences for everyone to enjoy in one place. With 22 beers and ciders on tap, why not try a beer tasting paddle of four varieties! Can’t choose just four? We also offer a flight of 12 served with a cheese plate. For those who are after something different, our spirit tasting paddles will go down just a treat! Choose from a gin paddle or a vodka and moonshine paddle. All served with a matching garnish, mixer and mini bucket of ice.
