Murray’s Brewery is hosting an Australia Day long weekend of un-boring flavours and festivities. The fun begins with the launch of the brewer’s Lamington Beer, accompanied by lamb-themed food specials, thong throwing competitions for little and big kids, plus a free concert playing everyone’s favourite Aussie tunes.
“We’re out to advance Australian fare this Australia Day long weekend and celebrate local flavours and craftsmanship,” says brewery owner, Murray Howe.
“It’s simply un-Australian to drink anything but great Aussie brews on Australia Day – so we are creating something special for the weekend with the release of our Lamington Beer. Think chocolate/coconut delicious-ness in a glass! It’s going to be a great weekend here at beautiful Port Stephens,” he added.
Murray’s beers will be matched to a series of food specials, themed around (you guessed it) lamb – including delicious lamb burgers and lamb schnitzel. There’s a large range of local and regional wines to sample, as well as Murray’s current range of 100% Australian owned craft beer, spirits and cider.
Free concerts of great Aussie tunes will be performed over the weekend starting with Amy Fredes performing her brand of chilled contemporary tunes on Saturday 26 January. Craig Thomson who is an Australian musician and actor famed for his role as 'Martin Dibble' in the award-winning television drama 'Home and Away will perform on Sunday 27 January.
Australia day will culminate with a thong throwing competition – for both kids and adults – with prizes for the longest throws.
A Brewery Tour will be held at 2.15pm.
Murray’s Brewery and Port Stephens Winery is family friendly, and children are very welcome.
A Brewery Bus service will operate on Australia Day, plus all weekend. Bookings essential – call 4982 6411.
