Soak up the sunshine and views, listen to great live music and taste your way through the best of Sydney’s brewing scene – including lots of local brewers – at Harbord Diggers’ upcoming Keep It Crafty Beer Festival.

The Northern Beaches is a frothy playground for craft beer lovers, yet deciding which brewery to make your next stop is always a challenge. Well, you can now experience the best of Sydney’s brewing scene all in one place thanks to the triumphant return of Harbord Diggers’ Keep It Crafty Beer Festival on October 21.

This is bound to be the ultimate spring day out filled with more than 30 boutique beers, culinary delights to match, live tunes and all-around good vibes.

Tickets to the Craft Beer Festival are $30 and grant you six tokens, each redeemable for a 150ml craft beer sample of your choice. Think of them as a passport to broaden your beer horizons or to simply raise a glass to the breweries you know and love.

The craft beer line-up will include local legends like Manly’s 4 Pines, Brookvale’s Surcraft Brewing and Freshwater Brewing. But you will also have the chance to discover new favourites such as Sunday Road Brewing in Kirrawee, Six String in the Central Coast, Mountain Culture in the Blue Mountains, and Stone and Wood in Byron Bay. 

Additional drink options will be available for purchase on the day, with one for $8, two for $15, and three for $20. 

Soak up the sunshine with a beer in hand on the Diggers’ picturesque Ocean Terrace, while enjoying the invigorating sounds of live music. Multi-talented singer, guitarist and DJ, Adrian Joseph, will kick off the tunes from 1-4pm, followed by X Factor contestant and local singer-songwriter, Ellis Hall, from 6.30-9.30pm. 

Whether you’re a seasoned beer enthusiast or a curious newbie, the Keep It Crafty Beer Festival is bound to be a highlight of the Northern Beaches calendar for 2023.
