Harvey's beers will not be available for growler fills on Saturday, but all other taps will be. If any Harvey's beers are still on tap Sunday, growler fills will be available.


We are so excited about this event!!
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 23rd April, (St George's Day) we will be pouring cask conditioned Harvey's Real Ales from our hand-pumps, & to further celebrate all things English on this special day, we will be pouring all our own favourite English creations from the remaining taps & putting on 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 all....
