SYDNEY CRAFT BEER AND CIDER FAIR

Presented by The Oak Barrel

The Oak Barrel (in the heart of Sydney’s CBD) will be hosting the second annual Sydney Craft Beer and Cider Fair on the 15th June, 2013. This is an indoor event showcasing Australian and international craft beer and cider. Last year’s fair was a great success and tickets sold out.

The fair will host over 25 stallholders each showcasing a variety of labels – with over 100 craft beers and ciders available to sample – offering customers the chance to taste and connect with the various brewers, brand ambassadors and other passionate aficionados.

There will be an emphasis on local craft producers. While we still have a way to go to catch up to our Kiwi cousins and the Yanks, there has been an revolution in local craft production over the previous couple of years and we aim to highlight the great stuff being done in our own backyard.

                 “Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer.

                   Oh, I grant you the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not

                  go nearly as well with pizza.”  Dave Berry
