Unless you were living under a rock this time 4 years ago, you’ll definitely remember seeing videos of friends and family pouring buckets of ice over their heads and nominating others to follow suit.
This was originally a way for people to challenge others to donate to various charities. However, it went worldwide in relation to MND, also known as Motor Neurone Disease. MND occurs when the nerve cells (neurones) that control the muscles enabling us to move, speak, breathe and swallow fail to work normally. Muscles start to weaken and neurones eventually degenerate and die.
This weekend at GABS our head brewer Michael will be teaming up with the legends over at Brewmanity Brewing Co to help raise money for the ‘Big Freeze for MND’ by doing his own ice bucket challenge.
Brewmanity Brewing Co was established to showcase their love of great beer while helping to raise money for a mate of theirs who suffers from MND. They believe in ‘Good Beer & Good Deeds’ and we couldn’t agree more!
The ‘Brewers Big Freeze’ will be taking place at GABS stand 31, Brewmanity Brewing Co. If you’re as keen as we are to see our mate get soaked, come say g’day at 1:50pm on Saturday 19th May at GABS.
The Alchemist in Vermont, USA were the first to brew New England IPA. Sounds like the start to a poem doesn’t it…
Their take on this beer was a hazy, juicy IPA. The name comes from the New England region of America where a few of The Alchemists neighbouring breweries copied their method. It eventually became so trendy that it’s now become its very own style.
NEIPA is a cloudy/murky beer with bitterness ranging from non-existent to low. Our iteration is closer to a traditional IPA. There’s a lot of juicy hops in the dry hop and in the end of kettle boil, so aroma and floral notes really come through.
No matter what you’re view of this modern beer style everyone’s talking about, our NEIPA has a massive mouth-coating juiciness that’s hard not to love. Tropical fruits, passionfruit and citrus notes make this beer our most smashable yet, but watch that 6% ABV.
Like the sounds of it? Stay tuned for our Vanilla Ice cream NEIPA we’ve conjured up just for GABS (Great Australian Beer Spectacular) from 18th – 20th May.
It’s that time of the year again for that special lady in your life. It doesn’t matter if she’s ‘Mamaaaaaa’ in the style of Queen, or like Lizzy herself, your mother is a queen, and she deserves the world.
We’ll be open on Sunday 13th and can’t wait to meet your mums! We serve quality tucker, including stone-fired pizzas, hand-rolled pastas and beer-perfect snacks to share. Surely your mum told you sharing is caring?
Your mum may be an avid beer drinker for all we know, but if she ain’t, don’t fear! If she’s more of a char-don-ayy type like our favourite TV Mum Kath Day-Knight, our curated wine list stars quality wine creators with plenty of by-the-glass options.
So we’re open as usual for lunch, that’s great and all, but did you know we’re hosting a trivia night for Good Beer Week the same day? In our experience, mums always know best, so we think you should come together with your mum and make the ultimate mother and child trivia team! Hosted by comedian Dave Warneke, there’s a $500 bar and restaurant tab up for grabs. Tickets include first drink, food, fun and plenty of tasters.
Go on, do Mother’s Day a little differently this year and remember, nothing says I love you like a a pint.
