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:

“Heartbroken” doesn’t begin to describe it.

My only consolation is the slab of Coopers Vintage Ale I picked up at an astronomical price a few days ago. One of the best beers in the country, and made by a large scale commercial brewer.

My favourite part is how Scope just redirected the …/beerfest link to their home page, so unless people stumble across this post they’ll never know for certain whether they just dreamed the whole thing…

This makes me awfully sad. My friends and I had quite the weekend planned around this.

About as close as you’ll get on the weekend now is Plonk! doing tastings on Friday evening, and Saturday and Sunday afternoon of that weekend.

Perhaps we should have a disgruntled RA tasting time. Perhaps not.

It’s like Corinbank being called off earlier this year, but without the floods.

Slightly OT, but it appears the “You Brew It” premises in Hume are up for lease.

The whole business has been up for sale on allhomes for quite a while now.

Links are now working, although the ticket price differs from the flyer. Now $38pp.

Excellent. I’ll assume the extra $3 is a booking fee added by eventarc.

The Mt Stromlo website has finally been uploaded, confirming this wonderful event is actually taking place.

Unfortunately the secondary links go to empty pages and there’s still nothing there for ticket purchase, but at least we’re getting somewhere.

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

I rang scope yesterday to try and get some information as they still have nothing on their website! The lady sounded very concerned and apparently I would get a call back to give me some information………. nothing. So here we are with less then a month to go and no way to buy a ticket. I have a gluten free mate and would love to know if he will get to join in the festivities or just sit in the corner and cry! I have a fear that I’ll turn up to any empty car park with a “help your self to the beer festival” type sign stiky taped to an esky full of VB tinnies. Actually that would not be all that bad………

Has anyone tried/recommend Three Troupers beers? All I know is that they come from somewhere in Pyrenees region of Victoria.

They hail from Beaufort, just west of Ballarat. They make a superb beer which is apparently available locally at Rydges Lakeside. http://www.threetroupers.com.au/

Cheers, we will get down there (Lakeside) for a taste.
