An Epic Free Four-Day Music & Creative Arts Festival Is Coming To Freshwater Brewing Co This Month.

Wander Through Night Markets, Learn A New Skill, Listen to Live Bands, Enjoy Fresh Beers & Bites, and See Circus Acts with the Kids at Brookvale’s Most Aesthetic Brewery

Sydneysiders tired of winter hibernation are about to be catapulted out of their caves, with the arrival of an epic four-day music and creative arts festival at Freshwater Brewing Co. from Thursday 25th to Sunday 28th of July.

Freshie Palooza will be held at the Brookvale brewery at the end of the month as part of the Creative Open – an initiative by The Northern Beaches Council to help boost and revitalise the area’s nightlife and music scene after lengthy lockdown impacts. Three years in, it has quickly become a major event for both locals and music lovers from afar.

One of the newest additions to Brookvale’s vibrant brewery district, Freshwater Brewing Co. is a stylish, relaxed and community-focused brewery renowned for its crisp lagers, energetic live gigs, great vibes, and delicious bites.

The brewery is The Creative Open’s official hub this year, with most major acts and attractions taking place at its expansive, pastel-hued taproom.

There will be entertaining and eccentric activities for all ages to enjoy from midday until late each day, giving all walks of life (including non-drinkers) a chance to discover what an exciting precinct Brookvale has become.

For music lovers, the impressive lineup of free gigs at Freshwater Brewing Co. over the weekend includes the likes of rapper Gold Fang, neo-RnB singer Ruby Jackson, Indie-trio Loretta and Urban Roots band The Strides – to name but a few.

There will be creative workshop offerings over the weekend, with tote-bag printing on Saturday and woodworking on Sunday, as well as an artisanal Winter Night Market on Friday featuring local legends PLOW Surf Co, Atypical Aromas, BohoBabe, The Sunshine Collective and more.

Those gastronomically inclined epicureans will enjoy some seriously good food and drinks. Freshwater Brewing’s kitchen will be firing up the burners and serving an array of hearty favourites for lunch and dinner, while the bar will be pouring cocktails, beers, natural wines and non-alcoholic beverages.

There will also be exclusive Palooza-themed specials on the food and drink menus – including a Palooza Pilsner and Palooza Paloma – with more exciting collaboration details to be revealed in the next few weeks.

Freshie Palooza isn’t just for the big kids. From 11:30 am – 2:30 pm on Sunday there will be a roving circus to keep the little ones entertained, while parents can kick back, listen to live music and enjoy a beverage and a bite. Not to mention, kids eat free on Sundays too!

“Brookvale has completely evolved over the past 10 years from an industrial estate to a bustling social precinct. With Freshie Palooza, we’re excited to introduce music lovers from all over Sydney to our creative and vibrant neighbourhood, and hope that they enjoy supporting and discovering our talented local musicians, artisans and producers,” said Jonny Bucknall, Founder of Freshwater Brewing Co.

Freshie Palooza’s inaugural four-day festival will be held from Thursday 25th July to Sunday 28th July from 11 am until late at Freshwater Brewing Co.
