Ahoy there! Put on your captain’s hat and sit on your couch because we’re bringing country, regional Victoria to you. Where you can stay in safety and comfort and sip along with us and the charismatic and wonderful Chris Moore from Sailors Grave, as we take you on a journey of all that they’re about.
From their experimental blends and brews and how they ended up in an abandoned butter factory in the tiny farming town of Orbost.
Sailors Grave are one of the most intriguing breweries in Australia right now, their beers are not only eye-catching but their taste’s are fully unique and down right captivating. We’re so excited to show these brews and get down to the nitty-gritty together, hopefully we’ll even spin a yarn or two.
What We’ll Be Trying
Down She Gose - seaweed sour (4.5% abv 355ml)
Original Sin Snakebite - 50/50 beer and apple juice co-ferment (6.7% abv 355ml)
Into The Pines Forest Ale - with foraged ‘shrooms (5.4% abv 355ml)
Wild Strawberries Cream Sour (5% abv 355ml)
How The Tasting Will Work
Each ticket includes 1 tinnie each of these beers. Tickets will be sold for $45, $40.50 for Oak Barrel members, including delivery to your door.
We’ll be sending out those packs from Wednesday 21 October, to ensure that we can get them everywhere they need to be.
Then on Thursday 29 October we’ll go live with Sailors Grave’s brewer and co-owner Chris Moore and Oak Barrel's froth enthusiast Mads Park-Neilson to discuss these delicious beers and how they came to be.
That will be live streamed through Zoom and The Oak Barrel’s Facebook and Youtube page as we field your comments and questions from around Australia.
We recommend between 90-120ml pours for the tasting event, so you’ll have some beer left over for after the tasting.
The live stream video will be posted after the live event concludes - so you can do the tasting at your leisure. But if you want to follow along live, we recommend ordering by Wednesday 21 October.
