A Very Boatrocker Thanksgiving


Boatrocker Brewing Co are super proud to announce: A Very Boatrocker Thanksgiving – a non-demoninational friend and family get together before the maddness of the silly season takes over.

This event observes the same world time as the traditional American Thanksgiving holiday season and we hope that you and yours can join us in saluting another year of family, friendships and togetherness whilst tipping your hat to those who have left us with a favoured tipple of choice.

On offer are four favourite seasonal American Brews, saluting the nation who have trailblazed the craft beer movement.

We will be offering legitimately imported cans and bottles of:
• Almanac Beer Co Pumpkin Sour
• Golden Road Brewing Key Lime Saison
• Sierra Nevada Otra Vez Cactus & Grapefruit Gose Style Ale
• Stone BrewingMonkey Paw Pub & Brewery 24 Carrot Golden Ale

We’ll also be spinning vinyl records of all those who have left us this year.

Tears, Beers and Cheers!

Belgian National Day (Weekend) 2016



Boatrocker Brewing Co, operators of Australia’s first Barrelroom and creators of some of Australia’s most highly awarded beers are thrilled to announce their inaugural in-house celebration of Belgian National Day, to honour the country whose centuries old beer craftmanship has trailblazed the way for the modern world.

Boatrocker owner and head brewer Matt Houghton’s passion for the trappist and flemish barrel aged craftmanship knows no bounds. A lifetime ago he set across the Belgian landscape, armed with only a backpack and Michael Jackson’s beloved Beer Hunter tome as his tour guide.

His discovery of these incredible beers set him on a path of enlightenment and education. And now presented with the opportunity to allow others to have their own personal discov- ery, Matt and the team at Boatrocker are opening up their cellar to celebrate all that is great about Belgian beers with a small selection of the beers that inspire the team at Boatrocker.

Entry to Belgian National Day 2016 weekend will be free to all and spans Friday, July 22nd-Sunday July 24th at the Boatrocker Barrel Room in Braeside, the very same room that all of Boatrocker Brewing Co’s barrel aging takes place in.

A large secection of Boatrocker brewed Belgian style ales, such as Tripel, Saison and Patersbier and will be on offer, as well as a vast array of legitimatly imported and properly cellared Belgian classics from breweries like Boon, Lindeman’s, Chimay, Westmalle, Rochefort, Orval and Rodenbach… to name a few. All legit imports and properly cellared.

Also on offer will be traditional Belgian food fare including Flammeküeche Pizza.
