This Sunday in celebration of Sydney Beer Week, the Inner West will gather together at the Factory Theatre in Marrickville for the first ever OktoberWest.
The festival marks the official launch of the Inner West Brewery Association formed earlier this year, and is a triumph of what our community does best: Live music, arts, entertainment, good food and great beer.
I am looking forward to kicking off this sold out event by playing a one hour DJ set on the Beer Garden Stage from 1:00pm.
With over a dozen live acts and eight different breweries represented, there is no shortage of activities on the day.
I am particularly looking forward to checking out The Morrisons and sampling one of the 30 unique craft beers on offer.
I congratulate the Inner West Brewery Association and the Factory Theatre for putting together this fantastic event.
I will continue to represent the interests of craft beer brewers in the Federal Parliament so events like these can continue into the future.
