Rise 'N Brine

Pickle beers, pickleback slushies, pickle eating competitions and pickled food at The Oxford Tavern

Petersham's newly revamped stalwart The Oxford Tavern is going full sour next month — and not just with its beers. The inaugural Rise 'N Brine festival will take over the pub on Saturday, November 16 with pickle-themed food, booze and even entertainment.

To start off, the bar will offer a few pickle-flavoured beers, which have been brewed for the day by local craft legends Batch and Yulli's Brews. Other booze options include a full pickleback menu, which features the classic — aka a shot of Jameson chased with pickle juice — and even a slushie version of the drink.

And the pickling doesn't stop there, either. The pub's Executive Chef Richard Price has also created a special menu of pickle-inspired barbecue eats to tuck into — think pickle-brined wings, fried pickle hot dogs and pickle pops.

A honky-tonk band, pickle eating competitions hosted by local favourite McClure's Pickles and roaming pickle mascots are also on the docket. If you'd like to sign up for the comp, you'll need to email hello@theoxfordtavern.com.au with "Pickle My Pie Hole" (yes, really) as the subject.

Entry is free, so just rock up and get stuck into the pickles.
