Ramjet Day 2023 will be one for the books, as we're celebrating 10 years of this iconic brew!
That's right, the first ever vintage of Ramjet went into barrel all the way back in 2013, and what a decade of decadence it has been.
So, our next night dedicated to the dark stuff will be brimming with all our favourite things about Ramjet Days over the years. We'll be bringing back great friends and collaborators who have helped us make this event what it is, indulging in some of our favourite brews from the past as well as delicious ideas for the future, and really just enjoying a great beer with a great party.
Tickets are a styled as a 'collect them all' punch card that lets you enjoy the event in whatever order you like and each include:
- A Ramjet Day merch bag with a 10th anniversary Ramjet Glass and a can of 2023 Ramjet.
- Ramjet 2023, multiple experimental Ramjet variants, plus a selection of our Founder, Matt's, favourite cellared kegs.
- A cracking meal from acclaimed, beer-loving chef Rob Kabboord (formerly of Merricote and Quay, but you might know him even better from our Boatrocker's de Vrolijke Boot Beer Degustation Lunch series), designed to pair perfectly with a rich glass of Ramjet
- Fresh oysters from the legends at Pambula Oyster Co. Stout and oysters - you can't go wrong.
- An incredible cheese selection from Stone & Crow Cheese Company - you know there are wheels and rinds being lovingly washed with Ramjet as you read this...and maybe even a Ramjet-laced accompaniment in the works
- Mick A.K.A. DJ Snakes on Everything...A.A.K.A. our DJ from the very first Ramjet Day will be there all night to keep the party going
- And very importantly, an exclusive chance to buy Ramjet and stock your own collections before the beer’s official release to the public
P.S. Ramjet newcomer? Here's the rundown!
Ramjet is the first barrel aged beer we started making at Boatrocker - a deep and decadent imperial stout, aged for a year in Starward whisky barrels.
We’ve been brewing and ageing annual vintages of this now highly-anticipated beer since 2013, hence the big to-do this time around.
And the beer itself? Each iteration has come with its own nuances and character, but the classic aromatics of chocolate and coffee, along with the warmth from the Starward whisky, shine every time. By using barrels that were once home to a uniquely Australian whisky, Ramjet is able to showcase a distinctly Australian style of of barrel aged imperial stout, with flavours that are big and bold but refined.
A beer that deserves a party.
