The Inner West’s celebration of beer returns bigger and better


Hold onto your schooners! Following a sold-out event in 2017, the Inner West Brewery Association has announced the return of Oktoberwest to The Factory Theatre from 6th to 7th October 2018.

Bigger and better, the Inner West beer festival has in 2018 expanded across two days to accommodate an epic program of live music, speciality brews, DJs, games, food trucks and much more.

Presenting a curated selection of brews will be eight of the best local breweries including Young Henrys, Willie the Boatman, Wayward Brewing Co., The Grifter Brewing Co., Batch Brewing Co., Sauce Brewing Co., Philter Brewing and Malt Shovel – proving why the Inner West is fast becoming the Craft Beer Capital of Australia!

Over the two days, The Factory will be transformed into the ultimate beer garden and beer hall boasting entertainment that promises to have something for everyone. Highlights include:

Adelaide’s heavy hitting Bad//Dreems, the perennial Inner-West party starters Philadelphia Grand Jury, slacker rock viral superstars The Chats, ex-Snowdropper frontman’s new project JD and the Hunger Men, Sydney’s garage-rockers Bloods, Frankie’s pizzeria resident Rock’n’Roll Karaoke with Dave Eastgate, free arcade games and Mario Kart ’64 care of 1989 Bar & Arcade pop-up ‘Beercade’ on Freeplay, a swag full of brewery merch up-for-grabs with Mayor of Inner-West Darcy Byrne’s Brewery Bingo, mouth-watering slow cooked meats from Bovine & Swine Barbecue Co and so much more!
