As an Independent Brewery Owner, I visit a lot of breweries while travelling. I was impressed by the operation. The beer was great. The staff knew the beer and the buffalo wings were Very Spicy! I'll visit again

We live in a brewing town in the UK....Bury St.Edmunds...Greene King beer.....but drinking beer surrounded by brewing beer is a bit special. On several visits tried many of the beers on offer, and none disappointed.

Modus has a great variety of craft beers and now even wines and food. Great place to hang on weekend with live music.

The food was tasty. I had the soft shell chicken tacos. The veggie balls are very more-ish. The beer was a fresh fruity taste that went down easily with the food. Would love to go again next time I’m back in Sydney.

owners are great, locals and friendly. Their winter ales are to die for. Sunday afternoons in summer they have music.
