Here's your guide to this Brisbane's most inspired beer events this weekend:
1. TUSK DAY - HOO HA BAR - TONIGHT. An Imperial IPA released twice per year in extremely limited quantities, Tusk is an Australian craft beer institution. Its previous incarnations have been smooth and rich with a wonderful malt backbone. Made at Feral's brewery in the Swan Valley WA, it's kegged off and delivered within 24 hours in refrigerated containers across the Nulla-boar. Tonight's release is being hosted by the most excellent Hoo Ha Bar. There's only one keg so get there early. It will be tapped at 6pm!
2. CYCLONE SEASON SEASONAL LAUNCH - NEWSTEAD BREWING CO - TODAY. This year's Cyclone Season is maltier, drier and stronger than previous years. Newstead's ode to Brisbane's summer weather, this beer is dry hopped with Hallertau and Tetnang hops. It will be on tap from today at Doggett St from 10am!
3. BEER INCIDER CHRISTMAS PARTY - WOOLLY MAMMOTH - TONIGHT. We're raising a glass to 2016 and all of our partners, suppliers, friends and family. Feel free to pop in and join the celebrations. The beers are on me from 5pm. I'm sure there will be maxi cabs going from Woolly's to Hoo Ha at some stage through the night!
In other news, it's great to see Modus Operandi is looking for a QLD based craft beer ambassador. Check out Crafty Pint for more info. This adds to new representatives appointed by Gage Roads and Hawkers in QLD, the local industry is continuing to grow.
Cheers to that...
