Modus Operandi Brewery
Modus Operandi opened in July 2014 by husband and wife Grant and Jaz Wearin. Based in Mona Vale on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. They are a husband and wife team who have been passionate about the industry (and drinking craft beer!) for years and have also dabbled with home brewing. When it got to opening there own brewery, they decided to pull in the big guns, hence there head brewer hire from the US of A (DJ McCready) who was from award-winning craft brewery Oskar Blues and running their specialty beer program. Recently, Modus Operandi hired Dennis DeBoer, there assistant brewer, who brewed with DJ back at OB with years of valuable experience, which Modus are putting to good use! It’s a fresh is best philosophy. Modus's motto is honest.local.fresh. They brew there own beer the best they can in there own brewery so they have full control. Grant and Jaz don’t undertake contract brewing arrangements from a philosophical point of view.
