One of our favourite craft beer pubs in town, the DOG Hotel in Randwick, will be celebrating its first birthday in style on Friday 9 December with one of the state’s most awarded breweries taking over the taps and launching a special collaboration beer.
16 of the venue’s 59 taps will be pouring Sydney Brewery’s finest drops from opening until sold out, including the Surry Hills Pils, Darlo Dark, Glamarama Summer Ale, Sydney Cider and Alter Ego Oatmeal Stout. In celebration of the special occasion there will also be a one-off collaboration brew, Light Rail Ale, in a nod to Randwick’s future transport links. The American-style steam ale has a light fruitiness that’s clean, crisp very easy to drink, and just $5 a schooner all day long.
Other specials throughout the day at the Dog Hotel will include the Paddo Pale for $6.50 a schooner, $8 a pint or $16 a jug, as well as $4 schooners of Coogee Kolsch from 4-6pm. Head brewer, Michael Capaldo, will be on site from 6pm to talk through his best brews and give advice to any novices.
On the food menu there will be a special $9.90 Fish and chips or mouthwatering $15 Rotisserie beef, chicken or pork. There will also be a competition to win a trip to the Hunter Valley including a two night stay at the Crowne, brewery tour, dinner and a tasting session valued at over $300. To enter, simply fill out a form in the venue and hang around for the draw that evening.
