Drink West

Head to Penrith to taste the beer made especially for the west.

Drink West is the fresh-to-the-scene brewery and brewpub backed by Sydney UFC legends Tai Tuivasa and Tyson Pedro plus Penrith Panthers' Nathan Cleary. The sell? "The first beer made out here, and the first beer made for us."

The range of crisp west-born frothies include the flagship lager, which according to the owners "pairs perfectly with a fresh pair of TNs and tall stories about how your old man nearly played for Penrith". Luckily, it also pairs with the loaded hotdogs and burgers. If lager doesn't tickle your fancy, there's also a nitro stout, oat cream XPA, pale, pils and hibiscus lime gose — plus a zero-carb mid.

From Wednesday to Sunday, you can swing by or book a table in the huge brewery space (complete with a staggering mural of the players and black and yellow team colours), catch some live music, cheer on the big game or just hang out on the lawns beneath the palms.
