Sydney’s new six-hectare foreshore park, Barangaroo Reserve, will come to life this month for the first instalment of the Barangaroo Welcome Celebration, a three-month program of free music, art, talks, family events and giant picnics overlooking Sydney Harbour.
Kicking off this Sunday (6 Sept), Young Henrys will be running two beer bars and a gin station serving their Noble Cut Small Batch Gin at the reserve.
Young Henrys will be serving a specially crafted ‘Welcome Brew’ copper ale (4% ABV), which was made in collaboration with Clarence Slockee, Aboriginal education officer at the Botanic Gardens. After consulting to find out which foods might have been available around the harbour at the time of the first Australians, Young Henrys and Slockee crafted the Welcome Brew with a selection of native ingredients.
“To complement the nutty, slightly roasted character of the wattle seed we added Australian noble like hops of Helga and Sylva along with the earthy, spicy notes of Ella. The result is a subtle, bright and lovely easy drinking ale that is sure to please the picnickers at Barangaroo,” Richard Adamson of Young Henrys said of Welcome Brew.
Food will be available for purchase alongside drinks from Young Henrys and others. The Welcome Party on Sunday is a free event, however registrations are essential. For more information, click here.
