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.

This iconic event, currently celebrating its ‘nineteenth annual exhibition’, showcases the creative talent of 107 artists from 19 countries.

With this exhibitions backyard being the mesmerizing outlook of Tamarama Beach – honestly, is there a better location to enjoy one of our Glamarama Summer Ale’s?

We kicked off Sydney Craft Beer Week 2015 on Thursday 15th October launching Schwartzenlager, our collaboration brew with the Keg & Brew andDove & Olive. Thursdee arvo beers never felt so good.. with complimentary tastings served by our Head Brewer, Michael Capaldo.

Schwartzenlager is a 6.4% Californian IPL

The nature of this brew stays loyal to the lager tradition of crispness and the need for hops. Being a 6.4% 52 IBU lager, we have used only the finest hops from the West Coast of the USA. Tropical fruits of guava and pawpaw greet at the nose, before the balance of bitterness and malt combine to create a lager that you want to jump out of the chopper for more!

Click here to view a snippet of the collab brew in action when James (D&O) and Zak (K&B) came to our brewery in the Hunter to make some magic…

Hasta la vista,

Sydney Brewery xx
