Join us on a road trip to the Ballarat Beer Festival (Jan 21)

Join us for our first road trip of 2012 when we head upcountry on Saturday Jan 21st to the Ballarat Beer Festival, a one-day event celebrating boutique beer, gourmet food and world-class entertainment.

Taste some local & international cuisine, enjoy a great craft beer and the fantastic music line-up, all in a picturesque country environment!

The gorgeous, delightful and supremely talented Clare Bowditch will headline. Joining Clare, fresh from their celebrated Glastonbury gig are Stonefield and, having just finished his second album Jordie Lane.

Tickets are just $90 ($80 for Ale Star members) and these include return coach travel, festival entry, official tasting glass & 5 tasting tokens.

The coach will depart The Local Taphouse in St Kilda at exactly midday. We will leave the festival at 8pm and return to the Taphouse around 9.30pm.

This deal is being offered to everyone (not just Taphouse regulars) so we suggest you book your ticket early to avoid missing out.


  1. Hey guys, the TryBooking site has been flakey since yesterday afternoon. Today I checked back again (11.20 am approx) and was greeted with this message:

    "Trybooking uses one of the largest data centres for our computing clusters. This data centre was moving to new facilities including the latest infrastructure hardware and this was to take only 4 hours late yesterday. The data centre is experiencing some problems and our engineers are working with the data centre engineers. We haven't been able to get a time of when it will be recitified but we are monitoring the situation. Please try back in 2 hours times."

    Hopefully it will be up and running soon - need a ticket!

  2. Their site should be back ASAP. Keep trying!
