Brindabella Beer Festival?

By Jungle Jim - 30 October 2012 33

Question for my fellow RA beer lovers…

I picked up a flyer for the “Brindabella Beer Festival” at the CRDL semi-final last week, which promised to rival the National Capital Beer Festival held each year at the Mercure in Braddon.

This magical event was to be held in Weston Creek (I think it was at the observatory) on December 8th, but I can’t find any details about it via Google.

Anyone else aware of this event and privy to any details?

Òlamaid deoch-slàinte!


UPDATE 30/10/12 18:42: Thanks to Luke for sending in this flyer:

I know a couple of smaller Vic brewers are coming up for it, but no one local seems to know about it.

Doh, don’t know about Brindabella, but if you are in the Ginninderra or Molonglo electorates, pop into Canberra Cellars, Belconnen, Braddon and Gold Creek for Kuntsmann Beers brewed by German immigrants to Chile. Yes this a blatant plug for immigrants.

Kuntsmann beers, eh? Official beverage supplier for all the Hung Juries, no doubt.

Now if only Scope would update their website so would could buy tickets, as promoted on the flyer. They’re still promoting Father’s Day as an upcoming event.

Some good breweries on there, making it a worthwhile event.

One or two I’m not so keen on…

Awww….awww…I’ve just now seen the flyer and I’m slobbering on my keyboard. Not an attractive image I know, but what the hell.

Wild horses would not be able to keep me away from Mt Stromlo on December 8th.

Perhaps we could establish a Riotous tasting corner somewhere!

Okay – so I called Scope this morning and verified that the event is definitely still on. Michelle, who I spoke to, was genuinely concerned that the website was still touting Fathers Day as an upcoming event and promised someone would look into it.

Hopefully that means we’ll be able to get tickets sometime soon.

See some of your there (not that I know what you look like). :)

The Brindabella Beer Festival Event Organisers would like to announce a sincere Thank You in the keen interest shown by beer-loving, RA hive. They have been inundated with calls and are pleased to announce that there will be an OFFICIAL LAUNCH kicking off next week, here on the RiotACT.. Potentially with special offers for Premium Subscribers 😉

Due to some crazy northern hemisphere weather, their website is unable to be updated at present. Ticketing and information services will be available soon..

Five of the loveliest words in the English language: special offers for Premium Subscribers.

Not so keen on ‘potentially’, though.

Doesn’t mention a year… Perhaps the flyer’s from 2007?

I was up at Scopes last night and it would appear that this event is a goer.

10 samples and a bus to get up there.

I’m guessing along with the website being affected, so is email? Questions asked, zero response so far.

Earlier in the year, whilst in McLaren Vale, I had the pleasure of meeting Dan and Corinna, the owners of Swell Brewing (Dan is a brewer, Corinna is a winemaker). I prefer their Golden Ale to their Pale Ale, but a Pale Ale from McLaren Vale that I loved was Goodiesons. Alison and I bought a six-pack (and some Barossa red) from Goodwood Cellars and were surprised how quickly the beer went down. Went back that night to get more but shop was closed and couldn’t find it at nearby bottleshops.
Has anyone tried/recommend Three Troupers beers? All I know is that they come from somewhere in Pyrenees region of Victoria.

Me too. I look forward to enjoying a number of brews in your presence (assuming you wont be packing any of those semi-wadcutters)
