I'm not bitter, I'm better
I don't want to change the world
I'm not looking for a new England
I'm just looking for another girl
Billy Bragg, A New England, 1983

We are also beery pleased to again be supporting our good friends up the road at Fury & Son Brewing Co for the second year running for their annual Fathers Day Beer Brunch on Sunday 1st of September with all proceeds going to support the good work of Men's Shed. Fury and Son have used the finest Crisp Heritage Chevallier Ale and Specialty Malt provided by BeerCo.com.auand taken inspiration from last century’s traditional London Porter style. Blending freshly brewed (new) and Brettanomyces Barrel Aged (old) beer, the brewers have created their own modern version of the Original Melbourne Porters enjoyed in the late 1800s during Gold Rush times.
Accompanying their reimagined Old Melbourne Porter of yesteryear are a couple of very recent additions to the modern craft brewing. Firstly, a Bergamot infused XPA, hop forward with a light body and a delicious citrus twist, and secondly, a Catharina Sour (a Brazilian kettle-soured fruit beer) that is chock a block full of passionfruit and guava.
The D’s who have been pumping out delicious souvlakis at the brewery for the last 3 months and are going to step up their offering for the day into a 3-course, Italian inspired feast. Kids, vegetarian and non-drinking options will all be available. Tickets are now available for purchase online: www.trybooking.com/BEOFR
