It's a decades-old inner west tradition — watching the Newtown Jets' home footy game, from up on the hill at Henson Park, on a Saturday afternoon each July. But things have been dialled up a few notches over the years and it now coincides with the annual Beer, Footy & Food Festival, which celebrates its third outing on Saturday, July 28.

A winter ritual for footy-lovers, foodies and everyone in between, the event's set to dish up a huge afternoon of family-friendly fun.

As well as that famed game of rugby league, expect a celebration of another inner west triumph — craft beer. Keep that thirst in check with drops from 20 different brewers, including Young Henrys, Grifter, Wayward, Batch, Yulli's Brews, Sauce Brewing and a heap more.

Organisers have roped in double the number of food vendors of previous years, too, so you can chow down on goodies from the likes of Burgers By Josh, Inbocca, Sparky's Jerk Barbecue, Arepa and Koi Dessert Bar.

And kidults and littlies alike are sure to be kept busy checking out the festival's biggest kid-friendly offering to date — think, petting zoo, obstacle course, giant slide, ferris wheel and even a couple of jumping castles.
