Uncle Hops at the Bank reopening celebration
Time Out says
One of Newtown's favourite uncles is back in action and launching with a Batch Brewing Co bang
This just in, some excellent news: Uncle Hops, the craft beer bar at the Bank Hotel, is reopening just in time for the October long weekend. And to celebrate the bar is teaming up with local brewing hotshots Batch Brewing Co to showcase six delicious brews on tap, including a very special offering from the women of the Bank Hotel brewed under the honourific of 'Aunty Hops'.
Called A Berry Salty Bush, the beer is a red grapefruit, cranberry and salt bush gose. It was first brewed and ready to pour back in March, so you'll finally have a chance to try its tangy, salty, seasonal and native flavours from this Friday. Find out more about the collab brew from the Bank's licensee (and 2017 Time Out Pub Award winner) Amanda Verratti right here.
The taps will also feature stars of Batch Brewing’s line-up including Tasman Tango South Pacific Ale, Helles Lager, Juicy Boys DDH NEIPA, Small Batch Wardell Nut Brown 2.0 and Small Batch Single Hop Simcoe IPA. The fun kicks off at Uncle Hops from 5pm.
Every two weeks Uncle Hops will be teaming up with different breweries from across Australia to showcase their beers on the taps – keep an eye out for the likes of Badlands, Moon Dog and Deeds Brewing on the Bank’s website, Facebook and Insta.
