Brewed & Bottled: Abbey Collaby 3 To Be An India Red Rye Rauchbier
Melbourne, Victoria March 6, 2013: Mountain Goat, Moon Dog and Matilda Bay breweries will once again unite to brew the Abbey Collaby 3. This year’s brew will be an India Red Rye Rauchbier and the public are
invited to attend this special evening brew on Friday 15th March at Matilda Bay Bar & Brewery, 89 Bertie Street, Port Melbourne.
Beer from the 3 breweries will pour from 4pm with drink specials between 4pm and 6pm. At 6pm we will tap our last keg of Abbey Collaby 2 (sorry, no growler fills). Brewers from all three breweries will be available to talk shop throughout the evening. Food will be available until 10pm with the event wrapping up at 11pm.
The first Abbey Collaby came about in 2011 when three Abbotsford breweries, all at different stages of development and with varying approaches to beer came together to celebrate the camaraderie throughout the craft beer industry during Melbourne’s inaugural Good Beer Week.
“Every year the Abbey Collaby is one of the highlights of our year. It’s great fun to work with the fantastic guys from Mountain Goat and Matilda Bay, and produce a beer that combines everyone’s distinct brewing
philosophies and style into something really interesting and delicious.” (Josh Uljans – Moon Dog Brewing, 02/03/2013)
For the first time the collaboration beer will be bottled and available direct to the public through the Mountain Goat and Matilda Bay brewery bars. The beer will be launched at Mountain Goat Brewery on
Wednesday 22nd May during Good Beer Week.
Wholesale proceeds of the Abbey Collaby are donated to the Collingwood Children’s Farm.
