Jameson Caskmates at the Time Out Hop-up
What do you get if you age whiskey in craft beer barrels? Something like Jameson Caskmates. It’s the fruit of a collaboration between Jameson’s head distiller and the head brewer of local craft brewery in County Cork, Ireland. They hatched a plan to send a few Jameson casks to the Franciscan Well Brewery and see how this might influence their craft Irish stout. Neither head brewer nor whiskey master knew what this experiment would bring, but both men hoped that some Jameson magic might rub off on the fine Irish stout – and they were delighted with the results. The empty casks journeyed back to the Jameson Distillery after the beer had been bottled, full of new stout character from their sabbatical at Franciscan Well. The Jameson Master of Whiskey generally prefers not to mess with a good thing, but his curiosity got the better of him and he decided to repeat the experiment – this time re-filling the stout-soaked casks with Jameson Whiskey. So how does it taste? While the triple-distilled smoothness is very much intact, the whiskey sings a different tune, with notes of cocoa, coffee and butterscotch confirming the stout influence. You can grab the whiskey every day of Craft Beer Week at Time Out’s Hop-Up ale yard. Just upgrade your craft beer of choice to a boilermaker, and you’ll get the chance to pair it with the whiskey – neat or on the rocks, whichever you prefer. And it gets even better. On Saturday 22, Tuesday 25 and Friday 28 October, members of the Jameson Crew

The Turquoise Elephant
It’s pretty exciting – and a bona fide Big Deal – when you get one of Australia’s most successful directors, Gale Edwards, taking on a gig on one of our smallest stages. As if that weren’t endorsement enough, Stephen Carleton’s play also won the 2015 Griffin Award for new Australian writing – on which occasion artistic director Lee Lewis described it as “a shockingly funny and black, black, black farce. It is an accomplished political comedy from a very clever, very wicked playwright who sees all our hypocrisies about climate change and the environment and turns them into his weapons in the fight for the planet.” The Turquoise Elephant pitches its tent in the temperature-controlled home of a politically privileged family, as they watch the climate disaster climax. This production stars Catherine Davies, Maggie Dence, Julian Garner, Belinda Giblin and Olivia Rose.
Eden Gardens Halloween
Halloween is almost upon us – the one night of the year where pumpkins are carved into jack-o-lanterns, trick or treaters knock endlessly on your door and the dead supposedly wander among the living. For Halloween-loving adults, sometimes it’s hard to find a place that will welcome fake blood and witch costumes for those well beyond childhood. But, fear not: Eden Gardens are hosting an adults-only party especially for all you spooky mature souls. On Saturday October 29, Eden Gardens will be transformed into a haunted garden. Expect a glass of specially brewed Halloween Punch on arrival; canapé stations scattered around the grounds; and a photobooth to capture all those scary moments. Dance the night away to the tunes of DJ Dracula, wander the haunted gardens and mingle with other Halloween-loving adults. There’ll be a themed open-air Garden Bar where you can purchase cocktails and drinks and, for those of you who need to park your broomsticks, on site parking. Tickets are $65 per head.
