The Argyle will be bringing back their Amber Affair beer festival this October, encouraging folks to raise a glass to help gather some much needed funds for Sydney Children’s Hospital in Randwick. Hundreds of beer lovers will be coming together on Thursday 20th October for the annual event, a showcase for various delicious and unique craft beers, ciders and wines from local Australian producers like Batlow Cider, Endeavour Vintage Beer Co, Premium Beverages, Rocks Brewing Company, Stone & Wood Brewing Company, The Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel, Hemera Estate, and Young Henrys.
“Supporting the Children’s Hospital is always a good cause no matter what,” said Mark Fethers from Rocks Brewing Company. “I believe this will be our 7th year supporting Amber Affair and it has always been a fun night.”
Now in it’s 15th year, Amber Affair celebrates a long history both helping the hospital and showcasing the strength of our local drinks industry. Last year, the event raised $52,640 to help Sydney Children’s Hospital purchase advanced new equipment, fund clinical trials and research, and provide vital training for doctors and nurses.
Tickets for entry are set at $80 and include food on the night, generous samples from every exhibiting brewery and winery, and three ‘take home’ mugs from some participants. Those heading along can also expect a dedicated games room, and several competitions including one raffle which will see one lucky ticket holder win ‘beer for a year’.
