Frenchies Bistro & Brewery is set to hold its annual Brewer’s Got Talent event at Sydney’s The Cannery on 24 February, giving beer fans the chance to taste quality home brew beers.
In previous years, the competition has been a launchpad for breweries like Cooks River Brewing Co., Nine Fingers Brew, Seeker Brewing and Wooden Axe Brewing Co. This year, 12 budding home brewers will submit their creations to a judging panel, with the winner receiving a beer brand launch program, mentoring and more.
Beer lovers will also be able to meet the brewers, taste the beers, and vote for the People’s Choice Winner. The winner will be able to brew a beer at Frenchies for half the usual price.
Frenchies’ Co-Founder and Brewery Director, Vincent De Soyres explains why the Brewers Got Talent event is such an important date on the calendar for the brewing community.
“We’re passionate about championing the local, independent beer industry, and Brewer’s Got Talent is the perfect way to provide emerging brewers with a platform to get their beers in front of industry pros and beer fans, and learn, grow and develop along the way,” he said.
In a competition first, beers by previous winners will be available for purchase from an onsite mobile bar, including brews from Beer Club Brewing, Wooden Axe Brewing Co., and Prickly Pete and The Wolf. Additionally, a special collaboration between Frenchies and Seeker Brewing will be on show on the day.
Responding to high demand, Frenchies has launched a second ticket option, which includes a lunch and Frenchies brewery tour before the main event. The lunch menu will feature popular Frenchies Bistro dishes, including a signature burger and hand cut fries, house made sausages and mash, a prawn and lobster roll, handmade pasta, and king prawns with coriander and tempura, each paired with a middy of house brewed beer.
Tasting only tickets remain available, with the sampling session running from 3pm to 6pm.
“We’re super excited to be bringing the event back to Frenchies for yet another year. We’ve built on the format for 2024 too, so there’ll be top notch food, some special brews, opportunities to get a behind-the-scenes look at our breweries and brewing process, and more. If you’re a beer lover, it’s not to be missed,” De Soyres said.
