The Indies are an annual celebration of the best of the Australian independent beer scene, with this year's awards night taking place in Melbourne on September 5.
Before we discover who's taken out the trophies in 2019, however, The Crafty Pint is bringing together the families behind the three Champion Breweries from 2018 (well, the husband and wife, at least – they're leaving the kids at home).
Head to Beer DeLuxe on September 4 and you'll be able to hear from (and drink the beers of):
- Matt and Sharynne Wilson – Moffat Beach Brewing (QLD)
- Andrea and Matt Houghton – Boatrocker Brewers & Distillers (VIC)
- Grant and Jaz Wearin – Modus Operandi (NSW)
Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start in the upstairs Hop Bar, with each couple joining The Crafty Pint team for a chat before mingling with guests.
Tickets cost $35pp ($25 for Crafty Cabal members) and include a beer from each brewery, all served with canapés. We'll be in touch to confirm any special dietary requirements in advance.
Crafty Cabal members can buy discounted tickets via their member's area.
