Pint of Origin

Rainbow Hotel


We are stoked to be part of Pint of Origin for the tenth year in a row!

This will be our tenth year in a row that we have been an honoured venue for Pint of Origin. We'll turn over all our taps to highlight as many of the craft brewers of Greater Sydney as possible.

The brewers we'll be showcasing this year throughout #PoO22 include: Akasha, Cronulla Beer Co, Grifter, LAB Little Alchemist Brewing Co, Nomad, One Drop, Quakers Hat, Rocks, Sauce, Slow Beer, Staves, Stockade, Sunday Road, Wayward, Wildflower, White Bay, Young Henrys and Yulli's Brews!

Expect a well balanced lineup that will change every day (and during the day as well) as we explore over 46 different beers and styles including Sours, Goses, Stouts, Porters, IPAs, Pales, Browns, and Blacks with plenty in between. We've got something for everyone from the sessionable to the imperial and plenty of collaborations to boot.

Come on down to Rainbow for a taste of the Sydney brewing scene!

#PoO22 Events

As well as their weeklong tap showcases, Rainbow Hotel is hosting the following events:

May 22, 2022 Live Music - Collard, Greens & Gravy More info
Acclaimed for their gritty, driving, down home-home sound, Collard Greens and Gravy play harmonica driven, early Chicago Blues in the style of greats like Little Walter, Jimmy Reed, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Rogers and Sonny Boy Williamson to name a few.
May 29, 2022 Live Music - Jules Boult & the Redeemers More info
Join Jules and The Redeemers with their brooding cross-generational take on Southern Soul, Rhythm & Blues at the Rainbow Hotel. From Jules – “As a performer and songwriter today, I am always reaching back in order to look forward. Reaching back to what? Well, the blues I guess? Those songs from turbulent times that still resonate with people today. Whether jazz, blues, country or folk – I care little for the distinction – as it has always been a case of nuance for me. Evermore I continue to draw upon the seminal experience of hearing real live jazz and blues played in our childhood home, which has fuelled my hunger to explore, create and develop” Matthew Frederick, Radio Presenter at 106.7 PBS FM – “He has a unique understanding of the American songbook, and sees the links between genres that most people ignore. He understands the cross fertilization between blues, gospel, country and pop – and uses it to create!”
May 26, 2022 Meet the Akasha Crew
We'll have a few of the Akasha crew down from 5.30pm and a few of their beers on too!


We'd love to know what you make of Pint of Origin 2022 – and if you've got any great ideas for future years, we're all ears!
