Food and words.
Over the last year, Pirate Life's boldly branded tinnies have made an appearance at events and festivals around Adelaide. Their beers are stocked at over 100 restaurants, bars and pubs around the city, and 100s more when you start searching around other states. March marks their 1st Birthday, and they'll be celebrating with a big street party filled with tunes, food, records and, of course, beer.

Pirate Life Brewery is proudly South Australian, but the guys behind it actually hail from Perth. They made the move to SA after first hunting down a brewery in the Barossa Valley, and then settling on their Hindmarsh brewery just west of the city.

The Gilbert Street Hotel will play host to the celebrations. The festivities won't be contained to the pub, with Russel Street being closed off to "create Adelaide's best beer garden for the afternoon."

Eight Pirate Life beers will be available on tap. There's the Pirate Life core range, the Pale Ale, Throwback IPA and the IIPA as well the their Golden Era Golden Ale and a NZ Pale Ale produced in collaboration with Tasmania's Hop Co. The party is also the first chance to try their newest core beer, the Pirate Life IPA, and an the intriguing Tempranillo barrel aged Cervaza Negra - a collaboration with Tomfoolery Wines int he Barossa Valley.

Cans of the core range and NZ Pale Ale will also be available because, as you may already know, Pirate Life are passionate about their tinnies.

The Gilbert Street Hotel are manning the barbecue, with all the meat supplied by Atherton Farms. The farm has a strong connection with Pirate Life, with the brewery's spent grain being used to feed the free range pigs that call Atherton home. If the free range meat takes your fancy you can check them out earlier in the day at the Adelaide Farmer's Market.

Blues duo JJ Fields and Snooks La Vei will keep the party churning, while Crackle Pop Records will set up their portable record store alongside the Pirate Life merch.

Whether you're a lover of craft beer or local producers, or you just like to party with a good drink in your hand, this is certainly going to be a bit more exciting than your average first birthday party.
