Good Beer Week is giving Melburnians a legit excuse to head out to Geelong on a Tuesday night when two of the city's best businesses team up at this highlight event. Blackman's Brewery is turning its bar and restaurant over to The Hot Chicken Project's Aaron Turner, who will serve up a menu of his signature Nashville-style treats alongside the launch of a seasonal produce-inspired brew.
An award-winning chef, Turner has come into more specific spotlight since opening nearby high-end restaurant Igni in 2016. It focuses on small growers and regional produce, with a menu that changes by the day. This ethos pairs nicely with Blackman's brew, which uses seasonal produce to create a beer that is truly a taste of Geelong.
This local-as event will give patrons a chance to meet both brewers and chefs, learn a thing or two about seasonality, and of course tuck into some fried chicken and craft beers.
