Neutral Bay’s The Oaks Hotel is joining forces with Australia’s very own beer diva, Kirrily Waldhorn, to host a national tour showcasing the best craft beers and produce from around Australia.
Aptly named ‘The Six States of Beer’, the bi-monthly events will each put the spotlight on a different state, starting in Victoria and ending in South Australia. Each one will utilise locally produced craft beers paired with food offerings that best reflect each location.
The Victoria event in February will combine beers, bites and beats at a music-filled stand up soiree; the next event in April offers a showcase of Tasmanian craft beers and cheeses; Western Australia will take its turn in June with a decadent beer and chocolate matching; in August The Oaks’ home turf of New South Wales will pair beer with locally raised pork; October’s Queensland event will combine beer and seafood; and rounding out the year is the South Australia event in December, which puts wine and beer head to head in a battle of the booze.
With a carefully curated selection of Australia’s best craft beers and tempting menus created by acclaimed Oaks chef Danny Russo in conjunction with local producers, this interactive beer and food experience is one national adventure not to be missed.
