"Better beer for Sydney" is the wonderful philosophy behind Sydney Craft Beer Week (SCBW). So mark your calendars, folks because from Friday 21 October to Sunday 30 October, SCBW will offer more than 100 events at over 75 different venues around Sydney.
With axe throwing competitions, hangover-crushing brekkies, beer-matched chocolate desserts and beer-guzzling history lessons, the SCBW program offers up a smorgasbord of glorious hoppy-goodness for both craft connoisseurs and occasional drinkers alike.
