Redcape's Willoughby Hotel on Sydney's North Shore is set to present the 3rd annual Willoughby Craft Beer Fair, to be held this weekend as part of the Willoughby Spring Festival.
Fifteen Australian brewers will take part in the event, which takes place between 11am and 5pm on Sunday September 14. The Willoughby Hotel blocks off MacMahon St, transforming it into a beer mecca for the day.
This year’s fair will be featuring familiar faces from 2013 including Cascade and Matilda Bay along with a handful of fresh breweries such as Nomad and Dennis.
Three years in, Willoughby Hotel publican John McGurk said the team has created a fantastic day that allows the community to experience the fantastic products created by the craft beer industry.
The event will see beer tastings complemented with a range of activities including gourmet food stalls, live music from local bands, face painting, a jumping castle and the baby animals to keep the kids entertained.
Tasting tickets for the day can be pre purchased for $20 at the Willoughby Hotel or on line at www.stickytickets.com.au.
Tasting tickets will also be available on the day for $25.
