Odyssey’s Australia Day Countdown

The Odyssey has another huge Australia Day planned. Along with celebrating the triple j Hottest 100 countdown, they will be running the hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers countdown.
The Beer Garden (one of the better ones in the region!) will be abuzz with groups of people of all ages enjoying a safe, fun and unique Australian Day celebration. To add to that, they have local artists Ben Dew and Jimmy Graham (following #1 on JJJ) playing live music in the Beer Garden throughout the day and night. They will also have plenty of tasty food available all day, including a lamb spit roast and pizzas.
It doesn’t stop there. They will also have many of the top 10 beers from the countdown on tap or in the fridge to help celebrate, along with best dressed and games including thong toss and vegemite eating.
The Hottest 100 Australian Craft Beers poll is back. It is the seventh time the poll has been run since it was launched by The Local Taphouse, with the number of entries doubling in size each year. Once again, the Hottest 100 is being run in conjunction with The Crafty Pint and Australian Brews News, with the countdown being revealed from 100 to 1 on Australia Day.
This year, more than 50 other venues will be joining The Local Taphouses in hosting an event. That’s more than 50 of the best craft beer businesses around the country joining together as official venues for the Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers of 2014 celebration.
Odyssey was selected by The Taphouse as an official venue due to being the original and the best craft beer venue in the region. Craft beer has come a long way since they opened their doors almost three years ago and offered for the first time to Geelong and the Surf Coast a venue that avoided the average chicken parmi and Carlton Draught and instead offered a fresh, unique and quality experience showcasing craft beer and ciders, matched with tasty seasonal fare are local live music.
After recently achieving #72 in the Top 100 Beers in Australia in the 2014 edition of Critics’ Choice Top 100 Beers Publication (a great achievement for a venue less than 34-years-old and the first of the local breweries ever to achieve such a feat) and winning Best Beer at last year’s Great Aus Beer Festival, the venue has high hopes they’ll poll in this countdown also.
