“Blame the Yeastie Boys,” explains the owners of The Wheatsheaf Hotel in Adelaide.
“After several beer-fuelled conversations with Stu and Sam at Melbourne’s 2011 Good Beer Week, we decided it would be an excellent idea to hold a Yeastie Boys concept tasting at The Wheaty.”
“When, several months later, the Boys invited themselves to the pub to make good our plan, we thought we may as well build a whole mini-beer-fest around their visit – and so Good Beer Wheaty was born.”
“We figured Melbourne shouldn’t have all the fun, and with a nod to the very excellent Good Beer Week (and its endeavour to make the most of visiting good beer people for the Australian International Beer Awards), The Wheaty put together a collection of craft beer events of the kind we already host – but over a concentrated period and with some very special bells and whistles. In short Good Beer Wheaty is a very short, very craft and very Wheaty celebration of good beer.”
The five day mini-festival will include celebrations of sour and wild ales, tap takovers from Renaissance and Birra del Borgo with a chance to meet the brewers, the return of the Yeastie Boy’s concept tasting and contract brewing showcase, and the first public Wheaty collaboration brew on a 50L Beerbelly Mash Pilot system featuring Birra del Borgo’s Master Brewer Leo di Vincenzo.
There are both free events and ticketed events occurring each day.
Tickets are now available by calling 1300 762 545 or through the Oztix website.
