Beer lovers and gin lovers will also be in for a treat, as the festival features the best local Sydney breweries with Willie the Boatman, The Grifter Brewing Co and Yulli’s Brews bringing their Froth Whitlams and Oprah Tinfreys along for the ride.  As well as Byron Bay based distiller Brookie’s Byron Gin joining the selection,” he added.

“The ever-popular Cheeky Naked Oyster Bar will be serving freshly shucked oysters and juicy prawns straight from Sydney Fish Market. There will also be a Japanese Aburi Bar where you can pick up mouth-watering blow-torched cheesy scallops.”

"We can’t wait to showcase the best of Pyrmont and NSW to locals and visitors alike," said Gibbs. "And the Pyrmont Chamber of Commerce would like to thank our partners and supporters, The City of Sydney, The Star and Marsh Advantage Insurance, for their ongoing commitment to this important event."
