Christmas has come early for the good burghers of Surry Hills as not only is the Royal Albert Hotel throwing a mid winter xmas party, but they've invited Thirsty Crow in to be the guest brewer. You don't often see the Wagga brewer's beers in Sydney, let alone a dozen of them, yet here's what's lining up:
- Sporting Ale
- Murder Pils
- 26Fifty Summer Ale
- Rocket Ship IPA
- Dark Alleyway IPA
- Baby Brown (aged on roasted hazelnuts)
- Wagga Love Biter (Rye ESB)
- Koko Porter
- Deets of The Devil (Smoked Chilli Porter)
- Vanilla Milk Stout
- Top Dog Oatmeal Stout
What's more, if enough people are keen they'll pull out a keg of Road 2 Ruin and put it on the hand pump.
Then there's the Christmas part, for which they'll be smoking and glazing a pig, dusting off those awful Christmas jumpers (which you're encouraged to do too) and playing dumpling roulette (which does get one's mind wandering).
Things kick off around 4pm.
