On Wednesday July 25, Hopscotch Urban Beer Bar will be hosting a Christmas in July party like no other, and bringing the North Pole to Southbank for a night of exclusive brews, festive foods and holiday cheer.
Overlooking the city, Hopscotch is like your dream backyard, complete with 30 flavours of beer on tap. The craftiest of them all are the unique batches made by Frank, the custom onsite microbrewery, Hawthorn Brewing Co. plus mates at Burnley Brewing and Quiet Deeds, have joined forces for the ultimate ‘collabeeration’.
The Three Wise Men coming from the East, will not only match beers with a festive inspired menu, but they are creating an exclusive beer for the night called ‘Frank-in-scents’. This exclusive brew, made onsite in ‘Frank The Tank’, is an Orange Brut IPA – it’s like waking up dusty on Christmas morning to a merry glass of Bucks Fizz. This straw pale IPA is bone dry, sparkling, with powerful orange and citrus flavours, plus aromas from the Cascade and Mandarina Bavaria hops. The addition of orange zest makes it the mimosa of beers.
Executive Chef at Hopscotch, Telina Menzies, will be serving up handfuls of fun festive eats, designed so you can balance your beer in the other hand. Think smokey Xmas ham and mustard toasties, duck fat hasselbacks with beer béarnaise, pigs in blankets with Hawthorn Amber Ale mustard dip and more.
There’s also a nitro icecream bar, serving up smashed boozy Christmas pud with caramel –
‘tis the season to snack yourself silly. Expect snow, igloo fun, live entertainment and plenty of holiday cheer.
Santa Claus will grace us with his presents and everyone can pick a gift from under the tree. Join in the Christmas spirit and wear your ugliest Christmas sweater for the chance to WIN a cool $250.
This special one-off event celebrates local brewing and a whole lot of good times, book your’elf and your mates a spot today.
