Sydney’s Ultimate Beer and Brew Festival Announces Dates
Turn down that Steve Smyth record, and hold off on the pin-up girl tattoo: it’s time for action. Sydney’s largest craft beer festival, Sydney Craft Beer Week has announced their 2015 dates. Let your boss know now: you’ll be needing Saturday 17 October – Sunday 25 October 2015 off work.
What can you expect at a festival where the fun is as important as the hops? The Festival has seen everything from Beergustations and Block Parties to a Sydney Sausage-fest or ladies beer high tea. Brewers descend on a city that in recent years declared: beer is best.
Mark David, Festival Co-Director says “Sydney Craft Beer Week is what Sydney is all about; incredibly fun events backed by a quality product. And that product is beer. The ultimate unifier. Literally nothing in the world could be better than celebrating beer, by its devoted makers, in Sydney.”
Get involved! Check out the stats:
- It all began in 2011, where just 100 craft beer lovers came together with local brewers and venues to celebrate the delicious variety of brews from around the country
- The event has doubled in size every year since, and shows no signs of slowing down!
- 2014 Sydney Craft Beer Week saw over 130 events in 60 venues
- Australia now producers more beer-enthusiasts than any other nation* (*Speculation only)
Festival Co-Director Joel Connolly promises it will be a festival not to miss. “Sydney Craft Beer Week has grown from a few beer-loving experts to a community wide celebration. This year we want to out-do ourselves again. There really is something for everyone, just as long as you love the beer and you’re willing to make 2015 the Unofficial Year of the Beer.”
Sydney venues and brewers can get involved now by registering events, visit the Sydney Craft Beer Week website for more information.
Stay tuned for announcements on the line-up for this year. The Sydney Craft Beer Week is gearing up to be one of the highlights of the Sydney social calendar, so save the date and prepare yourself for an unforgettable beer-fuelled experience. 2015 kicks off with the return of the Opening Gala Night on October 16.
