The Royal Hotel Leichhardt is transforming into a beer lover’s playground for the third year to host Inner West Beer Fest for one weekend in November.
The corners of Leichhardt’s Norton and Carlisle Streets come alive with more than ten breweries pouring their wares.
Live music and DJs will perform across the weekend and there will also be a "best beer in show" award that grants the brewery a tap takeover at The Royal Hotel.
If you're after something a little more hands on, crab racing could be for you; a gold coin donation gets you your very own hermit crab to run laps around the others.
The day will also see ping-pong, arcade games, giant Jeng, giant connect four and food from Asian Dumpling House and Mexican Fiesta. Or grab a meal from The Royal’s stellar balcony as you overlook the festival and buzzing Norton Street.
The event is free but you can skip the queues and pre-book your tastings by buying tickets here.
Inner West Beer Fest takes place at The Royal Hotel, cnr Norton Street and Carlisle Street, Leichhardt.
