It’s time to drink loads of beer. There, I got your attention. Now come do it at our Melbournian Oktoberfest, brought to you by Red Hill brewery and Phat Brats (it’s a German hot dog stand, not colloquially awesome or overweight spoilt young individuals).
Over at Red Hill brewery’s first open weekend, you’ll find five brands of beer: Kolsch, Hefeweizen, Weizenbock, Sticke Alt, a new pilsener, and a special taste test of an up-and-comer for Red Hill Brewery.
There’ll be oompah tunes, beer, brewery tours, beer, paddles, beer, and loads of cheesy Bavarian shenangans. Dress up and get amongst it, half or full-tanked. There’s a prize for worst-dressed (a case and a stein), and souvenir steins available.
Beginning today, the Builders Arms is being reshaped by a bunch of artists with a new design, menu, music, screenings and cheaper booze. Yes, cheaper booze.
As the mercury nudges 30C quench your hard earned thirst at the Microbrewery Showcase this week.
Beer, trivia, prizes, food, music, more beer. What more could you want in a night? Cake? There's cake.
Can these lads turn beer-drinking into an act of good?
We catch up with James Smith from The Crafty Pint to get the inside goss to Good Beer Week 2013.
The days might be getting shorter, but it's perfect weather to cosy up with Bridge Road Brewer's limited release, supercharged IPA.
