A few beers with your mates is never a bad idea, especially if it’s for a good cause – and that’s the case now more than ever. On Saturday, January 18, a handful of Sydney’s top-flight craft breweries will be taking part in Beer for Bushfire Relief, a day of fundraising across the country to support Australia’s firefighters and the communities that have been affected. So far, there are more than 70 initiatives across six states and territories, and that number’s only getting higher as the date approaches.
Whether it’s a one-off karma keg, or an ongoing effort, below are just some of the cracking producers taking part in this endeavour. For a full list of participants, click here.
And if you’re worried about having to nominate a designated driver, don’t be –Sydney-based wine, spirit and craft beer tour company Hop, Grape & Grain will be operating a donation-based hop-on, hop-off shuttle service connecting a number of the participating Inner West breweries between noon and 8pm. Funds raised will be donated to the NSW RFS, the Red Cross and WIRES.
