Sydney Brewery has launched a contemporary cocktail competition to highlight the versatile flavours of their Sydney Cider and Agave Ginger Cider. The competition invites bartenders from across NSW to showcase their creativity, with the chance to progress to the semi-final (and be one of six semi-finalists) at The Cidery Bar, World Square on April 4.

Three bartenders will then be selected by the judges to compete in the Grand Final of the competition, held at Crowne Plaza in the Hunter Valley, with accommodation included. The WINNER of the Grand Final will receive a weekend for two in one of the luxurious villas at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, which includes a round of golf, dinner at The Lovedale, a tour of Sydney Brewery’s Lovedale Brewery with tastings, and two cases of Sydney Brewery ciders to take home.

To enter:

  • Create a cocktail using a minimum of 60ml of either Sydney Cider or Agave Ginger Cider.
  • A maximum of five ingredients, including cider, can be used
  • Email your creation to, along with the name of your cocktail, photo, and 10 words or less to romanticize the good folks at Sydney Brewery.

Entries are now open and bartenders have until March 28 to send in their recipes. Check out
