Returning for its seventh year, Sydney Beer Week — which has this year dropped the 'craft' from its name — celebrates beer in all its golden greatness this October. Running from Friday, October 20 till Sunday, October 29, the ten-day celebration is packed full of events and activities that will grasp the interest of beer novices and connoisseurs alike.
These will take place in several locations all over Sydney — and there's quite the list to choose from. One notable event is the Hair of the Dog Breakfast, where the Rocks Brewing Company will throw a mighty six-course breakfast paired with eight beers. It promises to be one of the best hangover cures we've heard of.
You'll need it if you're heading to any of the other events, like the kick-off party full of brews and food trucks at the Australian Maritime Museum. Or The Grifter Brewing Co.'s dog-friendly event at their Marrickville brewery — there'll be brews from The Grifter and NZ's Parrot Dog brewery, food from LP's Quality Meats, pups and pints, canines and cans, fluffballs and frothies and so on. There's no doubt SBW will leave you better quenched, better fed and better educated in beer related matters than it found you.
