Footy season is well and truly upon us. It’s not too late to enter Burnley’s footy tipping; we’re accepting entrants up until the end of round 4, so if you’ve got a mate who wants to join now’s the time.
All tips must be submitted 2 hours before the first game of the round so just pop in to the bar and ask one of our lovely staff for your tipping booklet and a free beer for the round. Not just any old beer, our home brewed, independent, lovingly crafted Burnley beers.
If you can’t make it down for whatever reason, no worries. You can submit your tips by emailing them to email@example.com. Free beers don’t rollover to the following week and cant be accumulated, same goes for the pizza. But why would you NOT want drink your beer and eat your pizza straight away right?
Oh did we forget to mention, get all winners and you get a FREE pizza. This footy tipping thing is starting to sound like a bit of a win-win hey? All entry fees will be redistributed as prize money between 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. And for whoever finished last, you get your money back!
Just a heads up for everyone, our head chef Andy won his local pubs footy tipping a mere 7 years ago so yes, we do have a bit of footy tipping royalty amongst our ranks. If you think you’ve got what it takes to beat him, pop down and put your tips on.
Every weekend is exciting here at Burnley Brewing and last Sunday was no exception.
We were chuffed to host the lovely team at Froth Beer magazine for the April launch of their Sour Edition. It may have been April Fools day but this was no joke. The Froth team were giving out their magazines for free! Well, they’re always free, but this time they were personally and lovingly handing it to the lucky guests. Awesome right?
Food and beer paddles were enjoyed by many, courtesy of head brewer Michael Stanzel. Are we making you a little bit jealous? You should be, it was a beer heaven.
There were some really cool articles in this months edition; Exploring Scandinavian beers, Sour Beer Explainer and our personal favourite, ‘Sh*t My Mum Says About Craft Beer’. This is a laugh-out-loud section courtesy of magazine editor Emily Day’s mother, Silvia. ‘It smells a bit like a citrusy sweet smell, like a well-cleaned bathroom’ was how she referred to one of the sour beers.
Keep up the good work Silvia and Froth, we love you!
‘Are we there yet’?
Yep, it’s that time of the year again, Easter long weekend. Fancy a bit of a change of scenery from your average camping trip with friends and family? We at Burnley Brewing have a proposal for you. The best part about it? No commitment or lifelong promises needed. Just say ‘I do’. Actually, ‘I will’ probably works best!
Ok. Here goes nothing… Will you join us this weekend at our brewpub for good times and even better beers? That took a lot of courage. Still not convinced? Let’s see if we can persuade you with what we are coining ‘Burnley’s Easter alternative’. You decide which sounds like more fun.
Camping + Easter weekend = Traffic. That’s maths no one wants. Do you really want to be stuck in the car on the West Gate Bridge shouting at other cars ‘LEARN HOW TO DRIVE!’ You don’t need that kind of stress in your life. Not this weekend. The Burnley alternative? A hassle-free tram ride along Bridge Road, hop off at Burnley and sip on a refreshingly dry Saison. That’s where we’ll be.
Another conundrum of going camping over this Easter weekend is the whole sleeping situation. Squeezing 6 of you into a 3-man tent and waking up at the crack of dawn stiff and smelly just doesn’t cut it with us. The Burnley alternative involves a good nights sleep the night before, rock up fresh at noon and drink some mighty fine Frühschoppen. That’s beer you drink with good company before midday! We recommend our super sessionable, toasty Vienna Lager to get you going.
Burnley Brewing is open over Easter and we’ll be avoiding all these camping disasters by kicking back and enjoying the sunshine with a pint of Pale Ale, or three.
Just in case you’re interested, our opening times this Easter are:
Good Friday: Closed
Monday: Noon-late, plus $22 pizza and pint deal
We’ll see you there,
