The rumours are real. Northerlies Beach Bar and Grill – in collaboration with 8 Ball Aitken – will present an afternoon of craft beer and blues for Queensland’s far north.
Join the Airlie Beach-based venue for its Beachside Blues & Brews Festival on Friday, July 5 from 2pm to 10pm.
There will be five Australian blues acts along with an all-star jam session to end the night.
Nine Australian craft breweries are also taking part, including Modus Operandi, Stone and Wood, Balter, Bricklane, Iron Works, Green Beacon, Pirate Life, Coopers Craft, Lion Nathan Craft and 4 Pines, with proceeds going to the Cancer Council’s ‘Shitbox Rally’.
Yes, that’s correct, one of Northerlies intrepid staff is driving a ‘Shitbox’ from Melbourne to Townsville as part of the Shitbox Rally in October.
Half of the ticket sales will go directly to the Australian Cancer Council. Pre-sold tickets are $20 for adults. Ticket sales on the day are $30. Under 18s are welcome, if they have parental supervision, with tickets priced at $8. For all ticketing information please call 1800 682 277.
Come chill out, listen to some awesome blues tunes and sample some of Australia’s most awarded craft beers.
