The Factory Theatre will turn into a beer hall for one giant day of gigs, games and craft beer appreciation.
Thank you, Germany, for giving us yet another reason to splurge on our favourite fermented beverage. Oktoberfest is getting an Aussie do-over for the third year running, as Oktoberwest takes over Sydney's inner west for a day of beer, live music and food truck eats.
The Factory Theatre will be turned into a beer hall for the day on Saturday, October 12. Inside, you'll find Young Henrys, Willie The Boatman, Wayward, The Grifter, Batch, Stockade, Philter, Sauce and Malt Shovel Brewery all providing their best limited edition brews. All up, there will be 40 beers to try.
Oh, and of course there'll be tunes. Over 20 bands and DJs will take the stage, including Melbourne's The Bennies and local psychedelic four-piece The Laurels. So you can sit back with your pint and enjoy the music, or get involved in the pool comp, beer bingo, an arcade game battle or a go in the dunk tank.
In short, there's a lot to do. Luckily, pizzas, Jamaican-style burgers and jerk chicken and German sausages will keep you going throughout the day.
