@s28cheeses has got to be one of our favourite Aussie cheese makers. Kym Masters took the dreamy leap of switching up careers from corporate finance to practicing the artisan craft of Alpine Cheese. In a few short years Section 28 has blossomed into the leading Australian producer of hard and semi-hard Alpine cheeses. Kym makes uniquely Australian chees using the classic traditions of European cheesemakers and the very best milk from the Adelaide Hills, quintessentially capturing the essence of our local environment. Kym will be at the bar Thursday 26th October with 4 of his cheeses, including a collaboration cheese with @nomadbrewingco. Head over to creekandcella.com for more info.

We're pretty stoked to welcome @nomadbrewingco & @s28cheeses to the bar on 26/10. Kerrie Abba, owner and beer revolutionist of Nomad, and Kym Masters, owner and cheesemaker of Section 28, have been collaborating on something special. Beer and cheese have always been buddies, but that wasn't enough for these two. They've married together our favourite food and drink, and produced a traditional Alpine Cheese washed in Nomad's Freshie Salt n' Pepper Gose. Kym & Kerrie will be hosting a night of Beer and Cheese matching. The night will compass a guided tasting through four of Nomad's beers, paired with four of Kym's cheeses (including their fresh collab!) These guys are amazing at what they do, super excited for this one. Tickets are available for $49 @ https://www.trybooking.com/SGAQ A long time ago in a country far, far away (well, Italy) a love affair blossomed. It was a relationship between brewing great Leonardo Di Vincenzo and Kerrie & Johnny Latta, a husband and wife team from the Northern Beaches. After endless travel, negotiation and plenty of beers, the guys managed to persuade Brooks Carretta, Leonardo’s brewing protege at Birra Del Borgo to pull up stumps and make the journey down under to Brookvale. He had two conditions: To never be restricted by fashions and trends and to use Australia’s amazing native ingredients. Almost two years on, Nomad Brewing continue their discovery of new tastes, beer knowledge, experiences and the people that make craft beer great. Behind Section 28 is Kym Masters, who took the dreamy leap of switching up careers from corporate finance to practicing the artisan craft of Alpine Cheese. In a few short years Section 28 has blossomed into the leading Australian producer of hard and semi-hard Alpine cheeses.

Just tapped @williesmithscider Cerasus sour cherry wine. Pouring a deep garnet, it is spectacular to look at. A wild fermentation of black Lapin cherry, barrel conditioned in ex-Lark Distillery whiskey barrels. This is just breathtaking. Mixed culture funk, rich dark cherry, beautiful acid balance and length. Tap list for the week - 1. Willie Smith Traditional Apple Cider - 5.1% (TAS) 2. @mpbrewery Helles Lager - 4.5% (VIC) 3. @lordnelsonbrewery Three Sheets Pale Ale - 4.9% (NSW) 4. @akashabrew Hopsmith IPA - 7.4% (NSW) 5. @batchbrewingcompany Elsie the Milk Stout - 4.3% (NSW) 6. @waywardbrewing Charmer India Red Ale - 5.0% (NSW) 7.

Meet our two newest cheeses in the fridge, all the way from England. Stilton Blue is well known for its characteristic strong smell and taste, in a crumbly, semi-hard and slightly creamy cheese. Shropshire Blue uses a natural food colour to achieve its orange hue. It is slightly sour, but sharper and creamier than Stilton. We'll be matching these classic cheeses side by side with the English ales of @lordnelsonbrewery, Thursday October 12. Head to our Facebook page for more info, or grab yourself a ticket @ trybooking.com/SFPW
What a way to start the morning 😍 Our Cella Bowl is bursting with spring veggies!
@quattrostellesalumi have been making salumi in Sydney since opening in 2006, but their roots extend back to Calabria, Italy. Their family has always practised the art of salumi making, passing down their techniques through generations. This is the Tartufo Salami, made with black truffle shavings it is everything you'd want it to be - fragrant, elegant, a little bit earthy, a whole lot of delicious. It's not always easy to find a pairing partner for truffle salami. But we think @jamsheedwines Beechworth Roussanne is the perfect match. Luscious texture, melon, stonefruit & cleansing acidity. It remains fresh & vibrant given its rich body, playing off the layered fragrance of the truffle salami.
