Three bars. Three brewing teams. Three evenings. One variety of beer. Throw them all together, add your enthusiasm for a good craft brew, a great place to drink it and the spirit of competition, and you've got a Brew Down going on.
The first in what's planned to be an annual event, Brew Down is a rather crafty addition to Brisbane beer lover's diaries — and not just because new craft beverages whipped up by The Scratch and Aether Brewing, Tippler's Tap and Brisbane Brewing Co., and The Mill on Constance and Semi-Pro will be on offer. No, it's particularly crafty because it's a great reason to get everyone hopping between venues to try the new tipples, and to watch the brewers battle for glory.
Taking over The Mill on Constance on October 20, Tippler's Tap on October 21 and The Scratch on October 22, the three days involve blind beer tastings, voting and various contests — a good ol' fashioned arm wrestle, a hot sauce-eating test of fortitude and beer athletics. You can join in too, as long as you register your interest in advance. Or, you can simply go on a three-day pub crawl and enjoy the shenanigans.
