Fancy taking a trip around the beer world, sipping on some of the finest brews to be found in this fair land, with experts on hand to guide your every step and plenty of good company to keep you entertained?
Why, of course you do!
And that's pretty well what you get with the Ale Stars session at The Local Taphouse in Darlinghurst. With a different theme every month - usually a brewery, country or beer style, the event takes you on a happy, hoppy jaunt around all things beer, complete with food, quizzes and good banter.
Leading the way is Darren 'Doc' Robinson from Doctor's Orders Brewing alongside guests to entertain with stories, expertise and insight and, most importantly, to tell you about the beer you're drinking.
Alongside him for the April session will be Matt Houghton of Braeside's Boatrocker which is carving out a formidable reputation on the local scene thanks in main to its expansive barrel ageing program. The beers you'll get to try on this evening are a mixture of barrel-aged creations and some of their more straight-up styles:
- Mitte Berliner Weisse
- Yvonne Barrel-aged Saison (bottles)
- HopBomb IPA
- Ramjet Barrel Aged Imperial Stout
It's happening on Wednesday April 20 on the middle level and it begins at 7:00pm. Tickets are $40 which includes all the beers, nibbles and good times. Book your spot here.
