High Country Hops 2017
25 March, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
Head to the hills for our third annual High Country Hops festival at the brewery. Join the brewers of the High Country to celebrate the 2017 Hop Harvest.
Bridge Road Brewers are excited to announce the 3rd annual High Country Hops festival. A celebration of Victoria’s High Country Brewers and the 2017 Hop Harvest.
Now in its third year this young High Country event brings together like minded craft brewers and the local growers of that all important brewing ingredient, HOPS!
This family friendly festival is a celebration of Hops, but also features local food producers, musicians, performers, children’s activities and even some archery for those who arrive early.
The festival will be bringing together the four brewers of the High Country Brewery trail, including 3 new breweries to the trail Rutherglen, Social Bandit (Mansfield) and Blizzard Brewery (Dinner Plain) who will be offering their beers away from their home. The High Country Brewers all share strong links with each other and with our local hop growers.
Peter Hull from Sweet Water Brewing in Mount Beauty said of previous events “One of the highlights of 2015 for our Brewery, a fun day in the grounds of Bridge Road Brewers which showcased the breweries and beers of the High Country Brewery Trail, celebrated the great hops grown in our region and truly captured the spirit of the Trail.”
James Booth of Black Dog Brewery in Taminick says …“A great day out for the high country breweries involved and punters alike, fantastic atmosphere and good vibes to celebrate our high country brewery trail and the awesome hops that a grown in our neck of the woods.”
Milawa Cheese and Gundowring Ice Cream will again be a featured local producers providing some great local products to compliment the beer and the festivities. And a new addition this year will be Burgess family butches who will be bringing local meat and their smoker up the hill from Rutherglen to join us.
Entertainment for all will be provided by up and coming local Beechworth musicians, and the littles ones will be entertained by Trixie the Clown and unlimited time on our own jumping castle.
Bridge Road Brewers will also be hosting many of its customers and supporters including some of their international customers for this event.
