Fourteen brewers, two beer trucks, a cider tent, three food tents, live musicians, a petting zoo and plenty of beers will converge on Willoughby on Saturday, September 10, for the fifth annual Willoughby Craft Beer Fair.
Entry to the shindig is free. But, if you're keen to sample, you'd be wise to invest in some tasting tix before the date. For $33 online and $36 at the door, you get a tasting ticket, which will let you do just what its name implies. Expect Australian brewers peddling their creations — Balmain Brewing Company, Gang of Four from Sydney's Northern Beaches, Mountain Goat from Richmond, Victoria, Yulli's Brews from Surry Hills and Murray's from Port Stephens have all been on the bill in previous years — plus a stack of drops from around the world.
The Fair is hosted by The Willoughby Hotel, and is an all-day affair. Expect the craft beer fun to kick off at 11am and wind up at 5pm.
