The Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS) has postponed the 2021 Sydney Royal Beer & Cider Show due to the Greater Sydney lockdown.

Judging, which was to take place this month, has been moved to September 15 while an announcement will be made in the coming weeks about revised dates for the awards ceremony. The champions were to be declared at August’s Grape, Grain & Graze Festival but new dates for that now postponed event will also be rescheduled in due course.

2021 Sydney Royal Beer & Cider Show submission deliveries are being received between September 6 and 10. Head here for more information.

RAS Wine Committee Chair Sally Evans says although it is disappointing, safety must come first.

“The competition provides a great opportunity for beer, cider and perry producers and brewers to benchmark their products against competitors, so although it is a shame to see the competition postponed, we must be flexible and adapt to ensure the competition can happen in 2021, and provide that valuable service to our exhibitors,” Sally said.

“On behalf of the RAS, I thank all exhibitors and judges for their understanding, and we look forward to bringing the Sydney Royal Beer & Cider Show back to life this September.”
