    I'm going to Sydney for a concert festival in March. I'd like to find some good breweries while I'm there, anyone have some advice (or even want to meetup with an American home brewer)?

    I'll be there from March 6 to March 13, with the concert on the 9th.

    I really like the "Basement Brewhouse" inside Bankstown Sports Club (It's my local watering hole). It's more of a brew pub, where they make about 10 of their own and have another 10-12 craft beers on tap. Plus they do burgers and fries, etc.

    It's also spitting distance from the train station, if you're doing public transport while here.

    Where's the gig?
    Do you have accommodation booked? what suburb?
    This will allow people to recommend breweries and how easy they are to get to. Sydney is a decent sized place, and a lot of places are not easy to get to without a car

    And lastly, question from the muso in me, what band could cause you to travel to Australia?

    Going to Download @Donavin Smith ?

    I'm headed to Sydney next weekend for my sister-in-laws 30th - we're staying near the Cross as the party is at one of the main pubs there (don't ask, lets just say there are 'connections' in the area).. anyway, hoping I can find a good crafty somewhere in the area!

    It's in Parramore park. I've never been there, but the pictures look nice. I have looked at google for the breweries around, and there are a lot of them, I know I can't try them all, so looking for recommendations from people that know what good beer is supposed to be :)

    I did already book in Parramatta...but I can change it I think, where would be a better place in the city, it looks like transportation to & from the show is easy, so staying near it isn't important...(BTW, auto-correct didn't like Parramatta, stupid iPhone) I would like to visit breweries, wineries and do some diving...busy week of Rock, drinking and diving :)

    if your into booze and bands and stuff Id say go with Marrickville, Enmore , Newton . Inner city and a bit grimey but good pubs,close brewerys , beer and that lifestyle .And they are on the same train line as Parra so easy for your gig. If you want beach Coogee. beach is as nice as Bondi but allot more affordable to stay. but you will need to get a bus to the train

    but again if you don't wanna change Parra wlll be fine .and also cheaper


    by the way - no one local calls it Parramatta . its Parra with an Aussie drawl

    Was at 4 Pines a couple of weeks ago, so still definitely there and you can get their kellar door series at the brewpub. Hard to beat Marrickville as a place to start. Can walk between some of the breweries and then Willie the Boatman, Rocks, and Yulli's are not far away.
