In addition to
sampling sours, lapping lagers and appreciating ales, lucky patrons will be fed by Sydney’s finest food trucks and dazzled by live entertainment and harbour side views.

tournaments or a sea shanty singalong to name a few, you will need to get in quick to grab
your spot and be part of the celebration of beer. The festivities continue until Sunday 29
October with plenty of free events in the program to whet your appetite.

Festival Director Dave Phillips is excited to release the program of events for his first SBW.
“I’m stoked by the amazing efforts from the beer community to make so many great beer
experiences available for Sydney Beer Week. The hard yards have been put in by brewers,
venues, their mates and our own festival team to create an amazing line-up of events for
the beer curious as well as those already passionate and knowledgeable about their all
things beer”, said Phillips.

As the birthplace of Australian beer, Sydney has a rich and diverse history of brewing, and
SBW will feature some of the oldest in the country as well as the newest.
