Breweries from Queensland, New South Wales, Tasmania and Victoria are joining forces at Temple Brewing on May 2 to create a collaboration brew with a difference.
All of the breweries in attendance have experienced significant problems with a supplier and are coming together with the "common goal of making a positive out off a negative, to prove what the industry is really about."
The brew day is open to the public and will see the brewers create an "Eastern Coast IPA" which they will then sell on to raise funds to help cover their losses. The collaboration idea was put forward by Glenn Harrison, head brewer at Temple, after he discovered a number of small Australian businesses were in a similar – or worse – situation to them.
Breweries and businesses in attendance on the day include:
- Temple, Melbourne
- The Winston, Hobart
- Rutherglen Brewery, Rutherglen
- Shark Island, Sydney
- Barrier Reef Brewery, Cairns
- Rogue Wave Brewery, Surf Coast
- Boneyard Brewing, Melbourne
- Bruny Island Brewery, Tasmania
- Bale-Worker Project Brewery, Melbourne
- White Lies Brewing, Brisbane
- Asahi, Laverton
The brewery will be open to all on the day so join the beer community as they rally to make something good of a bad situation.
Doors open to the public from 12pm with a spit roasting in the beer garden and beer specials throughout the day.
