The NSW North Coast’s favourite brew event is back

Crafts on the Coast, the NSW’s north coast’s only craft beer festival returns to the Seabreeze Beach Hotel for a second year. After the success of last year’s event, the best of the north coast brew scene is back for round two in March 2017.

Between Friday 3 March and Sunday 5 March the Seabreeze Beach Hotel transforms into a beer lover’s playground. Crafts on the Coast celebrates local and regional boutique breweries including Bucket Brewery (Kempsey) and Black Duck Brewery (Port Macquarie).

General Manager of the Seabreeze Beach Hotel, Troy de Luca says, “Crafts on the Coast brings craft beer lovers and the local community together. Seabreeze is buzzing with good vibes, live music, great food and ice cold beer by some of the best brewers in the state.”

Entry is free with tasting tickets available to purchase. Visitors can meet the brewers and taste their way through a selection of local craft beers and ciders. The drinks selection is complemented with beer friendly food sourced locally from Macleay Valley producers. The menu is exclusively available for the weekend only.

Want to take your love of beer and produce to the next level? The ‘Brewers Dinner’ is a must. Held on Friday and Saturday the ticketed degustation dinner features dishes from local producers paired perfectly to select craft beers and ciders. The brewers are on hand to discuss all things beer and brew for an intimate foodie experience.

Sunday is a relaxed affair with a spit cooking on the terrace and a backyard BBQ atmosphere. Guests enjoy live entertainment on both Saturday and Sunday from 2pm.

Seabreeze Beach Hotel offers a range of accommodation packages for the event. Soak up the sun, enjoy great cold craft beers, fine food and make a weekend of it.

Located in the picturesque coastal town of South West Rocks the Seabreeze Beach Hotel is a hidden gem on the mid north coast and a stone’s throw from the beach. The town is known for its relaxed atmosphere and pristine beaches, along with its diving, fishing and camping. South West Rocks is just under an hour’s drive from Port Macquarie airport or a five-hour drive from Sydney or the Gold Coast.
