Caxton Street Festival – Sunday 7 June 2015

The iconic Caxton Street Festival will be celebrating it’s 21st Birthday this weekend on Sunday 7 June 2015. We recently got to do a tasting tour of a couple of venues on Caxton Street to get a taste of what’s in store for this weekend! First stop of the night was at Brewski, with my craft beer obsessed boyfriend being completely blown away by this venue and summed it up in his own words saying “these guys are serious about beer!”. We got to try Brewski’s ribs, and yes, they were as delicious as they look! We then popped across the road and visited Statler and Waldorf, upon walking into this venue we felt like it was never ending and we ventured all the way out the back to a new section of the venue, a beer garden like area complete with ping pong table and a stage which will be used to have live music on weekends! Pictured below are sliders from Statler and Waldorf. Our third (and personally our favourite!) venue that we …
