Few things are more synonymous with Father's Day than beer and barbecues. They are that perfect hand-in-glove combination and let's face it, how many Dads really want to unwrap more sock & jock classic combos or a 'lady-wearing-a-red bikini' printed-fronted apron before being turned toward the BBQ with obligatory long tongs in hand on Father's Day?
It's time to give Dad an extra special treat; a day he will truly remember and rave about afterward. This is the year to take Dad to lunch at the Carlton BrewHouse. He will LOVE an afternoon of beer tasting and the American style barbecue feast as well as the bevy of live music and family friendly entertainment.
The Carlton BrewHouse is the largest brewery in Australia. Dad will swoon for the freshest, ice-cold beer he will taste all year. He will drool for the mouth-watering, smoky, slow-cooked meats. He will definitely be raving about this day out for weeks and weeks after.
In addition to the regular beers on tap, the Carlton BrewHouse will be treating Dad to a very special sample of their brand new release Carlton Ale, which has been 150 years in the making. To enhance his understanding and enjoyment of the beer on offer, there will be guided beer tastings and talks about the history of Melbourne's brewing company.
Although this very special Father's Day event has taken particular aim at Dad, there will be activities and entertainment the whole family will enjoy, with special kids activities in the beer garden.
Entry to the Father's Day – Beer and Barbecue event is $50 per adult ticket, which includes the barbecue buffet, a pot of "Brewery fresh, unpasteurised Carlton Draught" (or Strongbow cider or soft drink if you prefer), entry to the beer tasting and brewing history sessions, and an extra special Father's Day gift bag for Dad.
Kids tickets (under 18) are $20 and includes lunch and a soft drink. Under 6 are admitted free. Tickets can be purchased online through the Carlton BrewHouse website or by phoning 9420 6800.
Please Note: Brew House tours will not be running on Father's Day. However, Dad's gift bag will include a 2 for 1 tour voucher to use another day.
The Carlton BrewHouse Father's Day – Beer and Barbecue event is being held on Sunday 4th September 2016 from 12noon to 4pm.
The Carlton BrewHouse is located on the corner of Nelson & Thompson Streets, Abbotsford.
