Celebrate beer and footy for a good cause at Beer DeLuxe
Cross-Tasman rivalries are sharpening up once more with the annual New Zealand vs Australia rugby union clash the Bledisloe Cup this August.
This year the Bledisloe Cup Charity Lunch is taking place at Beer DeLuxe in King Street Wharf, hosted by Phillip Cornwell and featuring special guest former rugby union star (and current Balmain coach) Matt Dunning.
Tickets to the lunch are $100 per person including a three-course meal and drinks. The afternoon will feature raffles and hot charity auction items guests can bid for courtesy of some of Australia’s best craft brewers.
From Two Birds Brewing, there’s a T-shirt and beer prize pack. From Akasha Brewing there’s a cap, T-shirt and brewery tour on offer (the tour includes a complimentary tasting paddle).
There’s also a tour on offer from Wayward Brewing – to which the winning bidder can bring 20 mates, including tastings.
Time Out is also getting in on the charity spirit with two gift bags, each including bottles of white wine and red wine, a six-month subscription to Time Out Sydney magazine, and a copy of the Time Out Sydney Pub Guide 2016.
If you love craft beer almost as much as you love your rugby then you’re going to want to get along to this – but book now to avoid disappointment.
The very deserving charity benefiting from the event is Bear Cottage – the only children’s hospice in NSW.
