For those looking for a fun way to visit a few of inner Melbourne’s best, brightest, funkiest and most welcoming bars, this might be just the ticket. Or card. The idea is simple. Visit 5 bars (all pretty close together to encourage responsible travel) starting with The Catfish and collect a playing card with each pot of Cavalier beer purchased. When the time bell rings and punters return to The Catfish at 8pm, the team with the best poker hand wins a guided tour of the Cavalier brewery, door prizes as well as other goodies. A specially brewed collaborative beer will also be launched.
The Cavalier team are masters at thinking outside the square, making beer fun and crafting great events that engage and involve the community as well as their many fans. This event sounds like a good way to share a day with a few friends, responsibly enjoy a few nice beers and have the chance to set loose those competitive juices. I’m not sure that bluffing is allowed. [PM]
