We’re not leaving you much time to prepare for The Greatest Event In Your Life And Beer History, but you don’t need to do much. Just make sure you lock this in: BREWSFEST 2013, noon till late Saturday, July 20, then organise a lift on the day.
All the old favourites are back. Sam the Spit Man and Handy Andy will be smoking up a swine in the carpark and there’ll be heaps of food, stand-up comedy, competitions,trivia, prizes and our unofficial house band Lagerstein will be cranking out the drinking tunes upstairs. They’re also the inspiration for Lager Lager – think Funnelweb but with a burst of Galaxy hops – possibly the best of several new brews that will be making their grand debut at BREWSFEST 2013.
You can buy pre-sold tickets for six drinks, a feed and all the entertainment for just $30. Or, if you’re afraid of commitment, just rock up on the day and pay as you go. Any one of our millions of friends and fans will tell you, we’re not the type to talk ourselves up around here, but this time we promise you, BREWSFEST 2013 will change your life, and possibly even create a wave of goodwill that spreads peace throughout the world.

NEW BEER & CIDER
If you happen to miss out then don’t despair, all is not lost. Just come down to the brewery after one of your counselling sessions and we can tell you all about it over a sample or two of one of our new brews. Aside from Lager Lager, there’s a few more debutants to test your mad skills on including Queenslander cider (a maroon, apple and blackcurrant concoction best savoured in the warm afterglow of another Origin victory while watching Blues crybabies whinge and whine). We’re trying to get a few more ciders going, there’s a strawberry one on the go and maybe even a mixed berry, you should start to see them in the fridge in the next few weeks. We’re also trying out a couple of new strains of hops (Celestial and Mosaic) which should also be coming through soon.
A lot of you are already taking advantage of the Brewers Club option and bottling up a carton or two of some cheap beer for just $30 a slab. Don’t forget, you can always pick up a six-pack from the samples fridge from $15 or $20 for the ciders and ginger beers.
WHERE TO GO WHEN WE ARE CLOSED
We do keep some weird hours down here at the brewery and we’re looking at expanding them a bit this summer by the way – but if you happen to miss us and only our brews will do, just head up the road and see Josh at the Aussie Nash. He can fix you up with a chilli ginger beer or two, and so can Daz and the crew at the Stones Corner Hotel or Kedron Park. The Stonesie actually carries a couple of our beers, godblessem, and we’re hoping to get a mid-strength on down there to cater for all the drivers and the dribblers. Jimmy, the main man at The Hideaway in the Valley has been on board with the pear cider since Day One. And we can’t talk up Clare and Leila at Room 60 in Kelvin Grove enough, you’ve really got to get down there. Then there’s always the takeaways at Urban Cellars as well so remember not to panic if we’re not around.
SATURDAY LUNCH-TIME SESSION
If you’ve never actually put down a brew and you’re keen to check out the process, have a few beers and maybe learn a couple of things about beer and cider, why not come down for one of the Saturday lunchtime sessions we’re putting on over the next couple of months. Get yourself a crew together and come down from 11am for a two-hour session that involves an in-depth run through of the brewery and the brewing process, four samples of our finest products, a sausage sizzle and a six-pack of our top selections to take home and take in at your leisure. All for just $39, just make sure you book a space.
That’s enough gibber for now, hope to see you at Brewsfest, or some time soon anyway. Stay happy, healthy and most importantly well-hydrated.
… And go Queensland!
