Coogee Bay Hotel will open its garden to Sydney's craft beer-loving masses again when its fourth annual Craft Beer and Cider Festival returns on Saturday, October 12 and Sunday, October 13. The weekend-long festival celebrates the best drops from around the country, showcasing Australia's best breweries and cider makers.
Festival-goers can expect over 60 beers from brewers across Australia, including Byron Bay's Stone & Wood, Adelaide's Pirate Life and, all the way from Hawaii, Kona Brewing Co. Not to mention a huge showing of local talent including Akasha, Batch, Lord Nelson, Young Henrys, Endeavour and 4 Pines, plus ciders by Hillbilly Cider and more to be announced.
Pop-up food stalls will be offering smoked meats and other treats throughout the weekend, plus there'll be live jazz to help fuel your beer tastings. While entry is also free, discounted tokens and festival kits can be pre-purchased online, or you can nab 'em at the door.
If the thought of all this booze is already making your head spin, why not book a staycation while you're at it? Coogee Bay Hotel has plenty of boutique and heritage rooms so you don't have to go far to find a pillow after the festivities wind down. Plus you'll be beachside when you wake up so you can remedy any sore head the next day with a plunge in the ocean.
