What’s on this May
May is the month of beer with both GABS and Good Beer Week happening. This year we are excited to be part of both which means, BEER, BEER, BEER!
We have an exclusive GABS brew on the way, Good Beer Week events with collab beers and a new seasonal that will take us into winter.
GABS – Great Australian Beer Spectacular
Each year, GABS puts the call out for breweries around the country to create something special for the festival. This year we have answered the call, in a big way. During the festival in Husky Container Bar B you will be able to taste our Bonfire Brown, an English Brown Ale.
This beer is an Australian take on an English classic, it uses smoked cherry wood chips for an intense yet smooth experience. Caramel, dark fruit and toasted malt flavours will leave you nice and toasty!
You’ll find the Bon Fire Brown at Sydney and Melbourne events.
Good Beer Week
Good Beer Week is Australia’s best beer event, the idea of a global festival that turns Melbourne into a independent beer lovers paradise with over 300 events across Melbourne for 1 week in May.
We have partnered with an iconic Melbourne venue for a night to remember and we are ready to battle our mates at That Little Brewery to see who reigns supreme.
Brews, Ballers and Burgers
We have teamed up with Easey’s to bring you an event with a bit more dazzle dazzle! Two levels of Easey’s will be dedicated to our beers; themed around the old skool and the new school classics of our favourite May activities; beer and basketball! Watch the NBA playoffs, get amongst some classic big head NBA Jam, and try some of our custom made Coldstream GBW beers: Boom-Shaka-Lager and our new seasonal, the Coldstream XPA!
Level 1 will feature the NBA playoffs on the big screen, A Full tap press from Coldstream and Easey’s iconic burgers.
Level 3 will be equipped with four player NBA Jam and Coldstream Brewery beers on tap plus the brand new XPA.
Get your favourite jersey on to be in the running to win some great limited edition prizes, plus stacks more giveaways to anyone that attends. If that isn’t enough to get you downtown, we’ll shout you the first round if you join us early enough!
The Yarra Valley Brewery Battle
We are going to go head to head with our mates at That Little Brewery. We are are going to choose three of our favourite brews, and the team at That Little Brewery are going to brew the same beers, but their way.
All six beers will be on tasting on the day and everyone will be encouraged to vote on their favourites!
There will be food trucks on site and a couple of specialty brews on the spare taps!
