All aboard the Brig Amity for seafood, shanties and brews
Tasty seafood treats from Restaurant Liberte's Amy Hamilton, craft beers from Wilson Brewing's Matty Wilson, Great Southern wines and music from The Shantymen will make for a rollicking evening aboard Albany's historic Brig Amity.
The event will take place on April 5, from 5.30pm to 9.30pm with tickets costing $150 per person.
Guest at Wish You Were Beer enjoy the unique view of Albany's Princess Royal Harbour from the deck of the Brig Amity.
The original Amity was wrecked off Flinders Island on June 18, 1845.
While taking in the history with a beer or glass of wine, guests will be entertained by the Shantymen, a rowdy bunch of 16 Albany men with a repertoire of seafaring songs from all over the world.
These sea shanties are a tribute to the merchant sailors of a bygone era who created rhythmic songs the sailors could use to time their work, enabling the crew to work as one when they were hauling ropes or turning capstans.
The Brig Amity is the ideal venue at which to sample Albany's best food and drink while getting up close and personal with the town's rich history.
