Whiskey, beer, tasty eats and live music will get together for one mighty afternoon on 1 December when JJ's Place takes over Commune Waterloo. The occasion for this shindig is the launch of Jameson's latest creation: Caskmates IPA, a whiskey aged in IPA beer barrels. It's also the first day of summer.
Get down there from 3–10pm to sample this new drop, as well as a limited edition Irish Pale Ale from Young Henrys, made especially for the event. Frankie's will be bringing its pinball machines, fresh apple cocktails and (most importantly) pizza from the CBD, while Newtown's Continental Deli will be serving up Mate's Plates, loaded with charcuterie, cheese and double sandwiches, alongside whiskey cocktails.
Providing the soundtrack will be a bunch of live acts, including The Delta Riggs, The Gooch Palms, Sloan Peterson, Display Homes and DJs from FBi Radio.
You'll get a free drink on arrival, but you'll have to pay for everything else. And here's the catch: you have to enter a ballot. If you're lucky, you'll score two tix.
