If you're looking for the best beer in NSW you don't have to travel too far from Central Station... it's approximately 16 minutes' walk to Staves Brewery in Glebe. Once you get there, settle in with a Pale Ale, the American Style judged to be the best beer in NSW by the esteemed panel at the Sydney Royal Beer & Cider Show. The Staves Brewery Pale Ale also took out the prize for Champion Draught Beer - beating a field of 86 Australian draught beers.
To be named as Best NSW Beer in a field of over 300 entries, Staves Brewery produced a Pale Ale showcasing the bitterness American Style is renowned for, with citrus and pine features rather than the earthy floral hops of the Aussie Style pale ale.
An independent craft brewery, Staves is brewed on site and served on tap in their beer garden, resulting in a true local flavour and feel. Visit their website to find out more - https://www.stavesbrewery.com/
Describing the win as "mind blowing" the boys at Staves Brewery remain committed to brewing the best beer they possibly can, although the Sydney Royal judges believe they are already firmly achieving this with the brewery also picking up a Bronze Medal for their traditional Oatmeal Stout.
