On Saturday 18th March 2017, Sydney Brewery spent the day exhibiting at Canberra for our 10th time running!

With over 51 exhibitors.. this beer fest was definitely the BIGGEST & CRAFTIEST to date… a day for the whole family with Expression Sessions hosted by our very own Head Brewer, Michael Capaldo, jumping castles and face painting for the kids, a selection of local gourmet foods and of course.. over 100 craft beer and cider to choose from..

To celebrate the festivals 10th birthday we had a specialty brew to launch on the day –

BRADDON BELGIAN BLONDE 7%…

An unfiltered Belgian blonde ale with slightly more hops than one would expect for style. It presents a thick, creamy head that lingers to the bottom. The aroma throws phenolic, estery fruits and the palate is a complex bundle of mid bitterness, sweet Belgian candy and high biting alcohol.

Catch us next year at the beautiful grounds of the Mercure Canberra!

In collaboration with Quarrymans Hotel for Sydney Craft Beer Week 2016, we launched Pyrmont Double Rye IPA.

To celebrate DOUBLE the goodness of our multi award-winning Pyrmont Rye IPA 6.5%, we kicked off SCBW with a “Meet the Brewers” session at Quarrymans as well as giving all patrons their first brew on us with nibbles to match!

PYRMONT DOUBLE RYE IPA 

8% ABV

The big brother of our original Rye IPA, this is a bolder hoppier version, yet still has incredible balance and smoothness for such high alcohol. Brewed with chinook, enigma and columbis hops this new world Rye IPA has all the old world character of traditional German malts, combined with pure Hunter Valley water.

Sydney Brewery enjoyed yet another fantastic weekend exhibiting at Taste Of Coogee, this year exhibiting over two days on Coogee Oval Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September 2016.

To CELEBRATE COOGEE we crafted a a specialty brew ‘Coogee Kolsch’, showcasing it at this year’s festival and ultimately giving the crowds… a taste of Coogee’!

ABV 5.1%

A rich, fruit driven head froths to the surface as the crystal clear, straw colour beer awaits below.

Brewed with a traditional KÖLSCH yeast this beer combines a soft malt profile with a surprisingly crisp and balanced noble hop character.

Over the course of two days, with Sunday 4th being Father’s Day, we welcomed long queues of Sydney Brewery beer enthusiasts, festival goers discovering the #BrightCiderLife and of course.. some very happy dads. We were  also part of the VIP experience at Taste of Coogee, exhibiting a bar Master Chef ‘Mindy Woods’ authentic Mexican cuisine.

Sydney Brewery continues to impress the Australian beer market with a swag of medals at recent AIBA, CBIA and International Beer Challenge competitions.

Hot on the heels of being the first small brewery in history to take out the ‘Champion Draught Beer’ with Lovedale Lager and ‘Champion Cider’ with Sydney Cider at the 2015 Sydney Royal, Sydney Brewery has won two more Trophies at the 2016 Australian International Beer Awards.

Lovedale Lager won Best European Style Lager again, after also winning it in 2014. Head Brewer, Michael Capaldo, believes that “the recognition we have received for our beers and ciders by the industry through such awards as the Sydney Royal Beer & Cider Shower and AIBA is a reflection of our commitment to quality”.

Glamarama Summer Ale also raised the bar for small Australian breweries, winning the 2016 AIBA Trophy for ‘Best International Lager’.

More recently at the Craft Beer Industry Association Awards, Sydney Brewery won 4 Silver and 6 Bronze medals, with every beer entered winning a medal including specialty beers, ‘Alter Ego’ an Imperial Oatmeal Stout crafted for GABS Festival Sydney, ‘Salaryman Lager’ and ‘Nulla Natural’.

Then at the International Beer Challenge just judged, Sydney Brewery picked up 3 Bronze medals for Pyrmont Rye IPA, Paddo Pale and Darlo Dark.

The expansion of their Lovedale Brewery is foreseen to be completed by late October this year, with the bottling line and new cannery to now be housed in a larger purpose built facility.

As an extension of the Schwartz owned Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, beer-enthusiasts will have a more enticing brewery visit and growing demands for the award winning range will be met.
