Bacchus Brewing Co says
We first ran this event on St George's Day back in April & it was such a roaring success that we have been continually asked "when are you doing it again?" So what better occaision than 6 months later hosting it on the Queen's Birthday weekend (with a public holiday on the Monday). Lock in the date, this is one event you seriously won't want to miss!

A little background info....
Our Brewmaster Ross Kenrick on his trip to the UK last year, was invited for a personal tour of Southern England's most famous brewery Harvey and Son ltd by their Head Brewer & joint managing director Miles Jenner. After a wonderful day touring this 200+ year old brewery & sampling many of their award winning ales, Ross cheekily enquired if there was a posibility of them sharing their Best Bitter recipe for him to brew something similar in Australia. Miles said he was probably happy to share the recipe, but since it contained several proprietry ingredents, not least their 200+ year old house yeast strain (that gives the beer it's unique flavour profile), it wouldn't be of much use if Bacchus Brewing Co really wanted to recreate their beer. After some excited dicscussions, Miles said "leave it with me, I'll see what we can do".
On returning to Australia Ross kept in touch & finally got the news that exceeded his highest hopes... In a world first, not only did Harvey's agree to share the recipe & a further 3 (including their World Beer Cup "World's Best" Brown & Mild Ale recipes), they also agreed to airfreight all the proprierty ingredients including their house yeast strain, so Bacchus Brewing Co could recreate their beers here in Australia.

So on Saturday the 1st October, we will be serving 4 award winning Harvey's Beers on hand-pump & nitro smooth pour, & again to further celebrate all things British on this special weekend, we will be pouring all our own favourite British creations from the remaining taps & putting on our amazing Ploughmans lunch to accompany them.
We can't thank Harvey's enough for entrusting us with this great honour, & we look forward to sharing the results with you once again....
