On most days of the year, a frosty, frothy beer seems like the solution to many of life's woes. On Tuesday, August 14, however, your cold brew really could help someone in need. At Fritzenberger's Ekka Beers for Drought Relief, the Petrie Terrace hangout is not only slinging yeasty beverages — it's also donating part of the proceeds to help Australian farmers to get back on their feet.
From 6–10.30pm, all you'll need to do is swing by, and buy either a Scenic Rim Brewery or Fritzenberger beer. From each schooner, $1.50 will go to Drought Angels. They're the charity helping farmers to stay on their land, especially in such tough, dry, recent conditions.
You'll also be able to hear stories from Scenic Rim locals about conditions in the area, with Tommerup's Dairy Farm's Kay and David dropping by as well — and giving away a two-night stay at their family farm, too.
Beverage-wise, the event will mark Scenic Rim Brewery's first trip to Fritzenberger; however the 'Berger also has its own tasty tipples. In fact, because the whole shindig happens to fall on Ekka public holiday eve, there'll be a Strawberry Sundae Ice Cream Ale on offer, combining Fritzen Strawberry Belgium Blond and Fritzen Ice Cream Ale.
