Illawarra Brewing & The Local present Hawaiian Cookie Golden Ale

Illawarra Brewing Company & The Local Taphouse present the sophomore release in their collaboration series, and it is set to outshine the award-winning CHUCK NORRIS American Red Ale.

The HAWAIIAN COOKIE Golden Ale is a beer of summertime passion. The Pacific Rim hops deliver a tropical aroma that rings out like the song of a Polynesian siren, leading into a biscuity malt backbone reminiscent of your grandma’s Anzac bikkies, and finishes with a fresh mouth-feel that will no doubt blur the boundaries of platonic love like Blue Lagoon.

This is your excuse to bust out your Hawaiian shirt and in return we’ll give you a free pint and get you lei’d (excuse the pun..)

Sydney troubadours, Tropical Zombie will provide the entertainment in main bar from 9pm with their sun-kissed guitar licks, jungle-percussive bursts and dual lead vocals.

From 6pm the Rooftop Terrace will host the official launch and we’ll be turning it into a faux-tropical haven... so tropical in fact, you better start your Malaria meds now!!

Thursday 17th October, 6pm

Ale Stars with Moon Dog

For this month we are hosting a special Ale Stars with the elusive Moon Dog Brewery from the rustic Abbotsford factory in back streets of inner-city Melbourne.

Moon Dog has been consistently unleashing a new breed of beer onto the Australian beer-loving public; blended styles, barrel aging, wild fermentation, while using some weird and wonderful ingredients. The beers are style-agnostic and irreverent with a healthy dose of tongue-in-cheek, and an attitude that says “Who cares? It’s only beer.”

We will be discussing (and drinking) the following beers; with dinner included:

Love Tap – Double Lager – 5.9%

Bock Naked – Dark German Lager with Chipotle – 7.7%

Mummy Have A Bite – Toffee Apple Amber Ale – 8.2%

Jumping the Shark – Cognac Barrel Aged truffled Imperial Stout – 15.5%

Tuesday 22nd October, 7pm
