There's a pop-up beer garden hitting Sydney’s Inner-West with a phenomenal line-up of Aussie frothies, beats and Mario Kart on Freeplay, and you better ‘beer’lieve it.
Hold on to your pints peeps because our fave frothie celebration is returning to The Factory Theatre. Following a sold-out festival last year, this baby is back and it's bigger and better than ever (really though).
Over two glorious beer-filled days, the official festival of the Inner West Brewery Association will celebrate the rich culture of Australia’s craft beer capital with a heap of tunes and liquid gold. Marrickville’s Factory Theatre will be transformed into an epic beer garden and beer hall with entertainment galore, let’s just say we’re ‘frothing’.
We’re talking a curated line-up of brews from some of the best breweries in Sydney with the likes of Young Henrys, Batch Brewing Company, Willie the Boatman and Sauce Brewing Co all making an appearance.
Tune-wise, expect Adelaide’s heavy hitting Bad//Dreems, the perennial Inner-West party starters Philadelphia Grand Jury, slacker rock viral superstars The Chats, ex-Snowdropper frontman’s new project JD and the Hunger Men, Sydney’s garage-rockers Bloods.
To pair with all that beer lovin’, expect slow-cooked meats from Bovine and Swine Barbecue Co. and a swag full of brewery merch is also up for grabs. As for the Mario Kart? There is a pop-up ‘beercade’ with, yep, you guessed it, arcade games on Freeplay. To grab your tickets, head here.
