I trivia, therefore I beer
Now we know that EVERY week is a good beer week, but this is THE Good Beer Week…
Fancy following a day in the life of a Burnley brewer? Gather your squad of 4-6 and compete in 10 rounds of beer-related challenges for a $500 bar & restaurant tab and bragging rights to become Burnley’s Ultimate Brewers. Stack your team with athletes from all disciplines for the best chance to win! Contests will cover smarts, strength and dexterity. We’re talking trivia, coaster flicking contest, beer cocktail making and blind taste tests to name a few.
It’s inclusive, fun and interactive. Beer fans off all levels, from rookies to master brewers will be able to participate in the action, with hands-on rounds designed to challenge, engage and excite. Our host for the night will be the hilarious comedian Dave Warneke. Expect lots of laughs and lots of beer.
The Burnley Brewing Beer Decathlon will run from 5pm to 8pm on the first Sunday of Good Beer Week, 13th May and tickets are $40pp. This includes includes food with 4 matched beers and plenty of tasters. Think southern fried chicken paired with Rauchbier (German smoked larger) and ham & pineapple stone-fired pizza with a tropical IPA.
They’ll be plenty of opportunity to taste each of our brews throughout the games, and our brewers will be onsite to talk about our beers and participate in the action too!

Harvest Pale released into the wild. It’s like brewing in the dark!
This coming Wednesday, 18th April, our very own Harvest Pale Ale will be released into the wild.
From 6pm onwards we’ll be doing a release special, pints at pot prices and a matched pork ribs food special, because we LOVE hoppy beers paired with rich, fatty foods. Who doesn’t?
The hops cut right through the richness and big hop aromas carry big, flavoursome food perfectly. There’s a party going on in your mouth and guess what? You’re invited! We’ve only got a few kegs of the Harvest Pale and a limited amount of pork ribs so make sure you get down to taste it!
What’s so special about Burnley’s Harvest Pale Ale we hear you ask? Well…Time for you to be a student at Burnley Brewing’s school of beer. It’s a bit like Hogwarts with hops.
Generally, brewers use dried hops when making beers. But when the hops are ready for picking once a year, brewers can use fresh hops, also known as wet or green hops. These fresh, beautiful hops are picked and used in a brew within 24 hours.
Our flagship pale ale uses both galaxy and cascade hops, but for this Harvest Pale Ale we’ve single hopped with galaxy only. It will be very cool to be able to taste these two beers side by side as the galaxy hop aromas and flavours will be very prominent.
As wet hops haven’t been dried like regular hops, something rather interesting is going to happen. Head brewer Michael can’t be exactly sure on the alpha acid or oil content and cannot accurately predict the outcome. It’s like brewing in the dark!
