Ten years ago in 2012, Young Henrys first contrived to brew a beer in honour of the Sydney suburb it calls home. They named it Newtowner.
This fairly simple, crowd-pleasing beer has gone on to become their flagship far beyond its locale, and ever since it was put into cans the brewery has celebrated its success with an annual event, the Tinnie Crack.
Once again taking place at the pub where it all began, The Courthouse, this year's event promises to be just as celebratory as previous years. It'll be hosted by the Liquor Sisters, with live music from Young Henrys' Rock 'n' Roll Circus spilling out into the streets, pop-up food from Mary's, The Continental and 212 Blu, plus the irrepressible 'Bucking Tinnie'.
The party starts at 2pm, and if you'd like to hear what it sounds like when hundreds of beer cans get cracked simultaneously, the Tinnie Crack itself happens at 4pm.
Entry is by way of a simple gold coin donation, which will be directed to the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre.
