Sydney Brewery has collaborated with music producer Hylander to showcase how our senses are interlinked, such as drinking beer, listening to music & eating delicious food!

It is proven that different notes & frequencies you hear can make beer and food taste sweeter and other notes bitter (sounds activating different parts of your palate).

To showcase this to you, we have created a unique ‘Sensory Beer Dinner’ experience. A four course degustation will be provided at Sydney Brewery Surry Hills with matching beers & ciders.

This will then be accompanied by four soundscapes developed by Hylander to bring out different flavours in both the food and drink for a truly unique and incredible evening. Plus a live performance by Hylander.

If you are Sydney Beer & Cider Club member, you can receive $20 off your ticket. If you’re not, simply click here to receive your discount.
