Pat Keeblefrom Stone and Wood Brewing Company said, “The reason we support the event is to help provide relief and respite for sick kids as well as their families, who need just as much support. It’s an amazing cause and it’s inspiring to see the brewing and hospitality community working together and getting behind it. An absolute no brainer for us and heaps of fun on the night as well,” said Mr Keeble.
Many brewers will be showcasing new products such as Endeavour with its Growers Pale Ale and Growers Golden Ale; Premium Beverages with its Brooklyn Lager; and Batlow Cider with its Batlow Oaked Pear and Apple Cider. 

Rocks Brewing Company will showcase its Rocks House Kolsch Ale and conviction IPA, a popular limited release of the India Session Ale, which is ‘hoppy like an IPA but lighter on the alcohol’.
Mark Fethers, Founder and Managing Director of Rocks Brewing Company said, “This will be our sixth year supporting the event and it has always been a great night. Myself and several other owners at Rocks Brewing Co also have children of our own and knowing that we can do something to help raise money so that these kids can have the best facilities available to them makes us come back year after year,” said Mr Fethers.
