The breweries of the Central Coast are banding together to celebrate locally brewed beer with Local Beer Day on February 24.
The event aims to showcase the local beer scene in the region, bringing beer lovers together for a day of good times and some epic locally brewed beers.
This will be the first Local Beer Day, inspired by a number of campaigns and events run over the past two decades pushing support of local and independent breweries and the growing craft beer Industry.
James Smith from The Crafty Pint is the main organiser.
“Our hope is to have hundreds of celebrations of local beer taking place in all parts of the country, encouraging people to reconnect with or discover for the first time all of the great locally-owned businesses in their communities,” he said.
“(We hope to) put a smile onto the faces of the business owners and their staff who’ve been doing it tough in recent years and make a noise about how wonderful and widespread the Aussie beer world is today.
“Craft beer enthusiasts and locals alike are invited to partake in this one-of-a-kind experience, exploring the rich brewing culture of the Central Coast.
“We have put together a day of festivities with a bus service between Six String Brewing Co, Block ‘n Tackle, Bay Road Brewing and Hawkesbury Brewing, only a 15-minute jump between each stop.
“The hop-on-hop-off service will run in a continuous loop throughout the day, providing participants with the flexibility to visit all four breweries at their own pace.”
The cost of $10 per person includes unlimited stops along the loop throughout the day plus a taste of the Central Coast’s finest brews with a complimentary schooner of each brewery’s core range beer.
“From the hoppy to the malty, the innovative to traditional brews, the region has a spectrum of craft beers to discover,” Smith said.
“A Central Coast Local Beer Day passport can be purchased from any of the four participating breweries prior to or on the day.”
