Little Creatures Geelong is very proud to present the ‘Westside Beer Market’ event for this year’s Good Beer Week. Going down on Saturday May 12, from 12pm – 5pm, the team will be bringing together all of the local breweries, brew clubs and beer creators on site at Little Creatures for their very own mini-beer festival, celebrating the talents of the West.
With pop-up stalls full of delicious beer, great food and entertainment, this is one market to get excited for.
Little Creatures Head Brewer, Warren Pawsey, explains how he can’t wait to share the love of beer out west (and frankly, neither can we!). “We’re really excited to be putting a spin on the Little Creatures markets which we have been running for several years now in Geelong,” he says. “We’ve brought in experimental brewers who will be showcasing exotic and innovative flavours, exclusive beer goodies and merch for the crafty types and the best of the breweries that our region has on offer.”
The long-established Geelong Craft Brewers Club will be brewing two kegs just for the event, so guests are encouraged to try the beer for free and judge them using their official Beer Judge Certification Program judging sheets – super professional. There will also be an opportunity to learn about an all-girl brewing society, The Pink Boots, who will be showcasing a keg of their latest all-girls brew to try.
Arrive from 12pm and have a wander around and taste the local home brewers’ experimental flavours and make sure to grab some quirky beer gear from Little Creatures & White Rabbit Breweries, Blackman’s Breweries, Flying Brick Cider Co, Prickly Moses, Cockies Beer and many more.
Why not get together to celebrate the brilliant breweries that this region has to offer. There will be live entertainment from Upton Brown, as well as juggling stilt walkers, wacky DJ’s and mouth-watering food including Pork Rolls and Woodfired Pizzas. Also making an appearance will be a keg of Little Creatures’ latest seasonal release, The Fuggle Is Real Stout, for everyone to enjoy.
The market is free for all and you are invited to stick around for some beers, dinner and some pumping tunes at White Rabbits Barrel Hall, or Little Creatures Canteen, following the market until 10pm.
It all goes down at Little Creatures Village (221 Swanston Street, Geelong) – Saturday May 12.
