Melbourne businesses have shown amazing resilience throughout this pandemic, and the innovation seen from local cafes, restaurants, bars, and bottle shops has been nothing short of remarkable.
Taking their offering to a completely different level, Moonee Ponds bottle shop Fizz + Hop has been painstakingly recreated in popular game Animal Crossing, and they'll be hosting a virtual beer tasting inside the game.
The event, being called Animal Frothing, is strictly 18+ and will take place from 7pm on Sunday 30 August. The perfect way to say goodbye to winter.
For $45 you'll get to jump on the digital stream hosted by beer aficionado, Clint Weaver, along with four Hawkers beers including their Yuzu & Plum sour, a 500ml 10% Imperial Stour, as well as their West Coast IPA and XPA tinnies. And you'll get it all with free delivery (if you live within 6km of the store) in time for the event.
There's also a VIP experience available for $70 where you can get a premium island getaway experience where users can play along on the island and take away fruit baskets the Fizz + Hop team has lovingly prepared. That's limited to six people.
