Where to Get Your Hands on Burnley Tinnies

canned_pale-ale_lager

Only a few short weeks ago, we started canning our house-brewed beer for the retail and wholesale market. We’re excited to say that the release of our canned Lager and Pale Ale was met with lots of enthusiasm from both long-time Burnley supporters and new fans alike. And thanks to our amazing graphic designer over at Studio Mimi Moon, we like to think our cans look pretty cute as well as bringing the great flavour that Burnley beers are known for. 

But enough about us- Now it’s time to shout out all of the great independent bottle shops that are currently stocking our cans. At Burnley, we’re passionate about supporting our fellow small and local businesses, and each of these shops fall within those categories. Whether you live within close proximity to Melbourne’s inner-city or even as far out as the Peninsula, there’s sure to be a Burnley stockist nearby. 

At the moment, you can find Burnley tinnies at the following locations:

Annie Lewis (Richmond)

McCoppins (Abbotsford)

The National (drink in only)

The Alps (Prahran)

The Moon (Collingwood)

– The Milton (Elwood)

Toorak Cellars (Toorak)

Blackhearts & Sparrow (various locations)

Cellarbrations (Balnarring)

Animus Distillery (Kyneton)

If you have a suggestion for where you would like to see Burnley beer stocked (or if you would like to sell our cans at your own bottle shop, bar or restaurant), feel free to reach out to our wholesale specialists at chloe@burnleybrewing.com.au. You can also keep up with us on Facebook and Instagram for more updates on where we currently stock our cans and offer our beer on tap. 

Happy drinking!

Sincerely, Burnley

Tuesday Trivia at the Brewery

pub_trivia_Melbourne

If you like beer and you like winning free stuff, then congratulations- It sounds like you’re the perfect candidate for our recently-launched trivia nights, right here at the brewery.

Lots of Melbourne pubs host trivia nights; We won’t pretend like we’re the first. But, we will admit that we’re doing things a little differently around here. 

While we aren’t currently giving away any of the infamous spiritual icon clocks that you may find at other trivia nights, we do have many other prizes available that (dare we say it) may blow your light-up Mary timepiece out of the water. Every single week, we will be giving away hundreds of dollars of beers, in-store vouchers, Burnley paraphernalia and other goods to the winners of the evening. 

Our questions fall under all categories, from beer facts to music knowledge to general interest. The more you know across the board, the more likely you are to lay claim to the grand prize (a $100 Burnley Brewing gift voucher). But even if recalling random bits of useless information isn’t your strong suit, you will still receive a reward of some sort. That’s right- No attendee goes home empty-handed at Burnley trivia. 

From 2-for-1 drink cards and beer samples to 4-packs and Burnley totes, there are tons of freebies up for grabs. 

To increase your chances of winning, why not get a big group of friends together to join in on the fun? After all- Many brains are better than one. That being said, spaces are limited and spots fill up quickly. So if you would like to assure a table for you and your mates at next week’s trivia evening, be sure to reserve a table in advance. Bookings can be made either in person at the brewery, over the phone, or online at Open Table.

Trivia nights are held every single Tuesday from 7:30 onwards. To keep up with event updates, feel free to join in on our Facebook event or keep up with us on Instagram for updates. Let the games begin!

Sincerely, Burnley

Tour de Burnley – Alp D’Huez Viewing Party

Melbourne_craft-beer

Do you love cycling (or watching it)? Do you love beer? Do you love a bargain?

If you tick two or three of these boxes, you’re a prime candidate for our Tour de France viewing party this Thursday the 19th at the brewery. 

From 8pm onwards, we’ll be airing stage 12 of the tour, which is arguably the most exciting segment of the entire race. The 175km route features a whopping 21 bends through the French alps and reaches over 2,000m in elevation. 

Of course, all that activity would make one hungry. To satiate you as you watch, we’ll be offering half-price beers and pizzas from 10pm onwards. That’s right- 14 beers and 8 pizzas all for 50% off. What a steal! We plan to air the race until well into the night, meaning you can indulge in cheap carbs for hours upon end. Hey, athletes need their energy, right?

But that’s not the best part- If you are a local cyclist, you’re surely familar with MAAP Cycling Apparel, who designs all of their garments right here in Melbourne. They’ve created a cycling jersey just for Burnley Brewing, which we’ll be offering to one lucky winner on the night. With a retail value of $160, this is an opportunity you won’t want to miss. 

P.S. If you’re vegan or gluten-free, don’t worry! We have pizzas available for those with allergens, sensitivities, ethical considerations and other dietary restrictions. Our half-price deal applies to vegan and/or GF pizzas as well. 

So come on down to Burnley this Thursday for a fun-filled night of cycling and sustenance to power you through. We can’t wait to see you there.

Cheers!

Sincerely, Burnley
