Oh yes, it’s back:

“A weekend dedicated to the world’s finest lagers”
We cannot hide it, we absolutely love a pint of lager. That crisp, refreshing, thirst quenching, bitter-balanced liquid is something of wonder, and for many years looked down upon by craft beer enthusiasts.
But never again we say, we will not allow it! ? And we will do everything in our power to showcase the magnificent character that a good lager can provide, and the wide spread of varieties that this unique family of beers has.
Kicking off Friday 25th, we’re bringing back ????? ?? ????, a weekend-long celebration of bottom fermented brews and oh boy we have some surprises:
To start with, we’re sure you’ve heard of the acclaimed German Pils by Hop Nation Brewery “Rattenhund”. Well, we are MASSIVE fans of this brew and especially for this event we’ve collaborated with the Footscray (and Mornington) based brewers for a unique twist…
? Introducing “RATTO CANE” Italian Pilsner ??, a hoppier take on the beer that won the 2021 AIBA for Best Pilsner of the international competition, and we cannot wait for you to try it! Che bello!
? The other headliner for this event is the world renowned and smoke heavy Schlenkerla Brewery from Bamberg (Germany)! Producers of the Original Schlenkerla Smoke beer (in German: “Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier”), recognised as the most iconic traditional example of a Rauchbier, and they still keep their traditional methods intact ? We don’t have just one but 5 different varieties of Schlenkerla that will be featured throughout the weekend. No regular pint size for these brews, we will only be pouring extra large servings of these beers in our special 600ml event glasses! ?
Last year the event was a big success, but since this time Lager has really exploded and the industry and consumers have absolutely embraced lagers as a legitimate and exciting family of beers in the craft scene. WE LOVE IT! Keep ‘em coming! ?
Come celebrate with a pint or 5! ?
