And finally we have probably the most exciting of the concepts, a beer barrelhouse in Newport. Barrel-aged beer was never part of any strategic plan but brewer Garrett Sherman’s sheer willpower and passion to get this over the line meant it was a perfect little venture. 4 Pines have been tinkering around with recipes over the last few years and the experimentation is now becoming a permanent feature on 4 Pines venue list. Craft beer lovers can now sample beers that have been aged from six to 24 months.
This fits in nicely with the village feel that has been created at Newport over the last decade or so. The Newport Barrelhouse will be opening sometime early in the coming summer.
One of the best parts of the expansion is the fact that 4 Pines are keeping their footprint to the Northern Beaches. 4 Pines Cheif of Hospitality Ged Dore, who is leading the venue openings, explained it very simply.
“We looked at various opportunities, but it felt right for us to stay local and concentrate on what we do best.”
Can’t argue with that. We think that the new ventures are going to be huge and something everyone should get behind. They will not only create over 100 new jobs but also cement 4 Pines as a leader in the craft beer and hospitality industries.
