The Hop Factory

The Hop Factory is Newcastle's home of Craft Beer, offering both a Craft Beer Cafe & Restaurant experience on Newcastle's most famous eat street - Darby Street. We have 20 taps of craft beer, the biggest and best range of Aussie and Imported beers in Newcastle, with a strong emphasis on food matching and a wine list exclusively featuring our local Hunter Valley vineyards.

The Hop Factory is a locally owned family business and is the end product of a 10 year dream to operate a genuine craft beer cafe by the Jeffrey family. Licensee Matt Jeffrey has experience to burn in the craft beer industry and is passionate about filling Newcastle's need to have second to none choice when it comes to micro-brewed beer. Matt has previously been deeply involved in establishing and maintaining the broad range of high quality craft beers available at East Maitland Cellars, Warners at the Bay and The Prince of Wales Hotel.

At the Hop Factory, the focus is not just on the beer - quality beer needs to be suitably paired with appropriate food, whether that be a burger, a traditional fish meal or a delicious chocolate pudding, all of which, and more, are on the menu.

The Hop Factory also has a strong portfolio of Hunter Valley wines, a diverse selection of ciders and ginger beers as well as a constantly changing range of bottled beers.

The Hop Factory changes its range and menu regularly to ensure fresh experiences each time you visit.
