The Local Taphouse in St Kilda is getting its Americana on, playing host to the annual Star Spangled American SpecTAPular on Saturday, July 8. It's a toned down, US version of GABS, with everything from the tap list and food to the decor and live entertainment hailing from the States.
They've sourced some 20 American brews from the country's top craft breweries, with big names including AleSmith Brewery, Almanac Beer Co, Stone Brewing, Sierra Nevada, Oskar Blues Brewery, Firestone Walker Brewing Co., Deschutes Brewery, Prairie Artisan Ales, Knee Deep Brewing Company, Anderson Valley Brewing Company and Victory Beer. That's one tasty, tasty list right there and one not to be missed one by beer lovers.
The American food menu will include barbecue pork ribs, Philly cheesesteak sandwiches and southern fried chicken, with mac 'n' cheese and corn bread for sides and baked cheesecake for dessert. Dress up is also highly encouraged, with prizes for best dressed. The party will be rocking from noon to 1am, with a gold coin donation on the door will go to St Kilda Mums.
