Nice to support an independent brewer.
Modus Operandi, a craft brewer in Mona Vale in Sydney, has recently opened a venue in Merewether in Newcastle.

We were up in Newcastle for the day to go to the Newcastle Camping and Caravanning show, so we called in.

Fabulous venue. Clever use of materials.

Indie had a great romp in the fenced, off-leash dog park before we headed off for a walk.

 

We’ve walked by a hundred times, but never actually entered.

What a mistake!

Sydney Park is huge, with heaps of off leash areas, and an interesting history.

A plane! Rarely seen in COVID-19 during 2020!
