The month of beer is officially upon us; October and the beer jubilee it brings with it are here. And this year, there'll be a number of seriously enticing events in the winding sandstone lanes of Sydney's heritage precinct. Celebrate the Best of Beer at The Rocks, with food and drink offerings at pretty much every restaurant, bar and cafe in the 'hood.

Highlights include The Australian Heritage Hotel's 13th Annual Australian Beer Festival, which runs from October 13–15, boasting more than 120 Aussie craft beers to try from 30 different brewers. Gloucester and Cumberland Streets will be alive with the sounds of glasses clinking at blind tastings, live entertainment and meet-the-brewer events, all while Munich Brauhaus is showing everyone how Oktoberfest should really be done. There'll be authentic German beer flowing to be paired with Bavarian delicacies such as pork knuckle, warm pretzels and an 'Oktoberfest platter'. There's also a pure bier on tap each fortnight from now until the end of October.

Also worth jotting in the diary is a Guinness & Oyster Festival happening at The Mercantile, where you'll be able to sample oysters and many other seafood dishes with a backdrop of local artists, Irish ensembles and live oyster-shucking demonstrations.
