It's fair to say the beer scene south of Sydney is on the up – there are breweries to be found pretty much all along the coast to the border with Victoria.
And Wollongong, in particular, has become something of a hotspot in recent years, with Seeker Brewing one of the most exciting and colourful new openings around the city.
Last month, they did their bit to both shine a light on the area's beer scene and give Gong locals a taste of beers from further afield with Collabruary: they brewed beers with 11 of their mates along the East Coast and tapped them all at the same time.
Now they're heading to Sydney for a showcase of some of those beers at the Union Hotel, Newtown, where guests will also be able to hear the founders' awesome story: one that involves identical twins, touring indie bands, and their evolution from Grassy Knoll to becoming brewery owners at Seeker.
On March 23, they'll be there for a Meet The Brewers at which guests will enjoy:
- 5 x 200ml pours of Seeker beers
- Q&A co-hosted by The Crafty Pint's Judd Owen
Tickets cost $40pp for all the above.
Unless... you're a member of The Crafty Pint's beer club, The Crafty Cabal. If so, you can save $5 on tickets and get a can of one of Seeker's IPAs to take home. Take advantage via the Cabal website.
