South West Rocks’ Seabreeze Hotel to host two-day craft beer festival in March (NSW)

Across the weekend of 10th and 11th March, Seabreeze Beach Hotel in South West Rocks will be once again hosting Crafts on the Coast. The annual craft beer festival will be drawing on some of the best names in the north coast brew and cider scene to make its third year bigger than ever before, transforming the venue into an enormous celebration of local and regional boutique breweries and cider makers.

Everyone from Kempsey’s Bucket Brewery to Port Stephen favourite Murray’s Craft Brewing Co will be getting involved this year while the craft program runs alongside live music from up-and-comers as part of the Live & Local festival happening around the area.

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

The free-entry festival will also see a large focus on food for the Sunday, with a specialised pub menu paired up the brews on offer.
