It’s a true art, correctly angling the curvy 15 ounce chilled glass, swirling it around, waving the magic wand and ensuring the correct froth to liquid gold ratio is on p(o)int. And there’s only one thing that soothes the soul more on Saturday afternoon than watching this visually captivating sight for a couple of hours, and that’s tasting the exuberant goodness. Well good news, because the Urban Craft Beer Crawl is your ticket to do exactly that, six times over.
You won’t only be tasting the perfectly formulated beers at one venue, oh dear no, you’ll get to explore the hoppy, fruity, spritzy flavours across six of Brisbane city’s vibey venues, whole are hosting tasting paddles from six different breweries located all over Queensland (insert heart eye emoji here). Taste some of your favourite craft beers brewed at the Gold Coast (Black Hops Brewing at Embassy) or opt for something a little more locally brewed, as in literally brewed under the Story Bridge (Sea Legs Brewing Co at Super Whatnot).
The best part is you can ditch the stragglers as this bar crawl is completely self guided. Simply pick your starting venue and head off on your adventure. We do warn you, with the venues all being standouts, it’s hard to pick where to start—all we can suggest is not to overthink, you will get to them all (providing you pace yourself).
Your thirst will be well and truly quenched thanks to the three 285mL pot vouchers and six tasting paddle vouchers included to use at any of the participating venues. Beer is always best accompanied by a hearty feed (we hear you parmy lovers), so they’ve also thrown in a $10 lunch voucher to spend at your starting venue before 1pm. Get in fast: tickets are only $55 for the first release ($65 for second release) and they’re bound to sell out . So grab your best mates and cover your upper lip in the foamy, refreshing, hiccuping goodness that craft beer embodies.
