Canadian Craft Beer SpecTAPular can now be revealed but can you name it?!
At last we can announce what we think will be one of our best ever SpecTAPulars... but we want you to help us name it!
SpecTAPular IX will feature a stellar lineup from four of Canada's finest craft breweries for the first time ever on tap in Australia.
The festival will take place in both our Darlo and St Kilda venues on Saturday August 14th from midday until 1am. We will have only limited supplies of these beers so, as normal, get in early as a bell will ring throughout the venue when each keg is drained. There will also live entertainment and Canadian-themed cuisine. Many of the staff will be dressing up as something Canadian and you should too..
But... we need a name though! If you can come with a witty name that beats The Moose & Mountie SpecTAPular (our working title) and which immediately evokes Canada (like the Star Spangled SpecTAPular did for our US beerfest), we'll figure out some sort of prize for you. Think of words like mountie, maple etc. Post your comments below by the end of this week!
Here is the confirmed lineup:
Dieu du Ciel!
Rosée D'hibiscus (Hibiscus flavoured wheat)
Corne du Diable (IPA)
Peche Mortel (Coffee Imperial Stout)
Blanche du Paradis (Wit)
