High Country Hops festival approaching

January 13, 2016

Bridge Road Brewers are excited to announce the 2nd annual High Country Hops festival. A celebration of Victoria’s High Country Brewers and the 2016 Hop Harvest.

Now in its second year this young High Country event brings together like minded craft brewers and the local growers of that all important brewing ingredient, HOPS!

This family friendly festival is a celebration of Hops, but also features local food producers, musicians, performers, children’s activities and even a chance to try your hand at some Archery.

The festival will be bringing together the four brewers of the High Country Brewery trail, as well as Rutherglen Brewery who will be offering beer away from their home. The High Country Brewers all share strong links with each other and with our local hop growers.

Peter Hull from Sweet Water Brewing in Mount Beauty said of last years event “One of the highlights of 2015 for our Brewery…a fun day in the grounds of Bridge Road Brewers which showcased the breweries and beers of the High Country Brewery Trail, celebrated the great hops grown in our region and truly captured the spirit of the Trail.”

James Booth of Black Dog Brewery in Taminick says ..”A Great Day out for the high country breweries involved and punters alike, fantastic atmosphere and good vibes to celebrate our high country brewery trail and the awesome hops that a grown in our neck of the woods.”

Hop Products Australia will again support the event, offering a hop knowledge stand at the event explaining what hops are, and how they are grown and processed.

Milawa Cheese and Gundowring Ice Cream will again be a featured local producers providing some great local products to compliment the beer and the festivities.

Entertainment for all will be provided by up and coming local Beechworth artist Liv Cartledge, and the littles ones will be entertained by Trixie the clown and unlimited time on our own jumping castle.

The Gertrude Hotel will again be organising a bus from the Big Smoke to join in the action. Ph (03) 9419 2823

Bridge Road Brewers will also be hosting many of its customers and supporters including some of their international customers for this event.
