Like beer? Like monsters? Like your brews named after creepy critters, with bottle, can and label artwork to match? Horror-loving drinkers, there's never been a better time to pair your beverages with your fondness for all things scary; however, October 7 and 8 will be even better than usual thanks to Netherworld's Monster Menagerie Beer Festival.
The inaugural event will bring together 16 yeasty tipples, strange creatures and stellar collaborations, all for two days of boozing fun. And if you're wondering why it takes place on October 7 and 8, just think about it for a second. 'Tis the month of Halloween, after all.
Everyone from KAIJU to Brewtal to Wolf of the Willows to Mountain Goat will be involved, plus locals like Green Beacon and Brisbane Brewing Co too. Tickets cost $60, which gets you 150ml of each and every one of the themed beers — almost all of which are being poured for the first time — plus a limited edition enamel pin, five game tokens and packet of Netherworld monster trading cards. Non-ticket holders will also be allowed to join in the fun, but won't be able to enjoy all of the brews.
