AMERICAN BEER MONTH STARTS 4 JULY AT MURRAY’S BREWERY
7 USA-themed beers
Elvis-inspired dude food
FREE American-themed concerts every weekend
Starts Thursday 4 July – ends Sunday 28 July
Murray’s Brewery is celebrating American Independence Day from Thursday 4 July – for a whole month! Yes, the distinctive aromas, colours, flavours and sounds of America will be showcased again at its Bobs Farm brewery and winery right across the month of July.
These school holidays, join patriots around the world to embrace one of the most popular beer styles, IPA’s (India Pale Ale). On offer will be 7 USA-themed beers – 4 limited edition Single Hop IPA’s – each paying tribute to a different hop variety (Idaho 7, Locally Grown Chinook, Simcoe and Sabro), together with a Black IPA, Laguna Brut IPA and of course, our award-winning Fred IPA.
The kitchen team will be serving up a finger-licking-good array of USA-themed food specials, such as a belly-busting Elvis Burger filled with bacon, peanut butter and ‘jelly’; giant BBQ platters and popular favourite, chicken wings done lots of different ways.
American-themed FREE concerts will be performed every weekend including:
7 July – Nano does Latin American/Caribbean
13 July – Rehab Brass Band performs down and dirty bras injected funk
14 July – Half Nelson plays heartfelt jazz
20 July - Norm Bakker’s Elvis Tribute Show
21 July – Brien McVernon plays rock n roll
28 July – And more …
“The Fourth of July is a significant national holiday. And while it’s usually associated with fireworks, parades and baseball games, we’re paying tribute through the release of some truly awesome American-style beers and dude food,” said brewery owner, Murray Howe.
“We’re inspired by the unique spirit of entrepreneurism found in the USA. For American Beer Month we’ve brewed some brilliant American IPAs, including our Brut IPA as well as an IPA using an American variety of Chinook. We’ll also be celebrating with classic American Pale Ales.
“American beer styles are evolving every day. There are so many different flavours to enjoy and expand your experiences. So make sure to stop by Murray’s Brewery this month for a chance to taste our American beer tributes” says Murray.

Newy local Tom Blake has a sound that of Jack Johnson and Jason Mraz....whilst creating a cool modern Blues vibe. Playing well know songs with a chilled yet upbeat vibe. Good times ahead with Tom Blake." accompanying him with some percussion instruments is his brother James, who brings in extra smooth harmonies and helps to create a cool upbeat vibe.
