The Willoughby Craft Beer Fair has definitely earned its place as the leading craft beer fair of Sydney’s North Shore. The street fair is an institution for craft beer lovers and their families, with the fourth instalment confirmed to be held on Sunday 13th September, 2015; 11am – 5pm.
Tasting tickets will provide fair goers with a ‘license’ to taste what the craft beer market is serving up in 2015; from the latest perfected brews from the big players, palate pleasers from local brew houses, to the more exotic off-the-grid concoctions sourced from the far corners of the world.
This year’s fair will be featuring familiar faces including Matilda Bay and Endeavour along with a handful of fresh breweries such as Gang of Four, Matso’s Broome Brewery, and MO Brewing. With so many beers available to taste, finding the right beer for you will be easy! 
Gourmet food stalls will be offering superb dishes, perfect to accompany the beverages on offer. A range of activities will be onsite to keep the younger ones entertained, including a petting zoo and everyone’s favourite…face painting! Additionally, with fresh new live music acts, to keep the ears as satisfied as the taste buds, the day is a ‘must do’ spring event for beer enthusiasts and their families and friends.
Willoughby Hotel’s Publican John McGurk said “The Willoughby Craft Beer Fair has become an iconic event on the North Shore Calendar. The team here have been able to create a fantastic day that allows our community to experience the fantastic products created by the Australian and International Craft beer Industry.” 
The beer fair was honoured at the 2014 NSW Australian Hotels Association Awards for Excellence; Highly Commended for Best Promotional Concept.
The Willoughby Craft Beer Fair is a FREE community event held in conjunction with Willoughby Council’s annual EMERGE Spring Festival. Tasting tickets for the day can be pre purchased for $22 at the Willoughby Hotel or on line at (search Willoughby Craft Beer Fair). Tasting tickets will also be available on the day for $27.50. With over 2000 in attendance in each year, we suggest you come early and stay the day!
