What a week, what a drive…
We pulled out of Byron last Friday cruising along the coastline down to Sydney. With our top speed being 90km/h on the flat black bitumen and on those great inclines as you hit the outskirts of the city making us struggling to maintain 40km/h, we kept to the left lane the whole way.
Just like those balmy nights where the cicadas’ hum makes everything feel like it is pulsating, Sydney Craft Beer Week has given the city a real buzz. When we rolled into town on Sunday, we kicked off the week with our event Holidaze… Sometimes life throws up unexpected surprises and two weeks out from this event, our venue fell through. Luckily, we found 107 Projects and luckily the punters found us on the night. With table tennis rallies being won and lost on one side of the room and a token American was showing keen onlookers the ropes of corn hole while the DJ played retro tunes, everyone settled in early. We kicked off with a Karma Keg to raise money for the not for profit art space we were using, raising over $600 and we tapped our Limited Release Lager alongside our other beers, all while the Veggie Patch filled everyone’s tummies. What a great mix of people. Thank you Sydney for showing up and making it an awesome night.
Bonnie at The Steyne
There’s been no rest for Bonnie with the caravan being checked into The Steyne on Monday morning. She is pouring beers from 5 this afternoon, so if you are around Manly come down.
The Big Pig Out Three
Come Saturday, she’ll be crossing the bridge again and making her debut at The Pig Out 3, at the Newington Inn. This is one of our favourite events and with it being the third year we have done this, The Newington is putting 3 pigs on the spit, so everyone who pays $25, will enjoy a pork roll and four of our beers on their Saturday afternoon.
Sip and Savour
We’ll also be at Sip and Savour, so make sure you drop past for a beer and a game of table tennis.
We will be making the drive home Monday morning, so if you see Bonnie… give us a beep!
Here’s some happy snaps from the Holidaze Sunday Sesh…
