Murray’s locally brewed, 100% Aussie-owned craft beer, spirits and cider
Lamb-themed food specials
Thong throwing competitions
Hermit crab races
FREE live concert . . . and more
All Weekend and Monday 27 January
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 bbq-themed food specials, thong throwing competitions, hermit crab races 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) bbq & lamb – including delicious pulled lamb tacos. 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 Jake Hunt performing her brand of chilled contemporary tunes on Saturday 25 January. Michael Peter will perform on Sunday 26 January.
Australia day will culminate with a thong throwing competition and hermit crab races – for both kids and adults.
This show is a mixture of songs from The Beatles, Cat Stevens, Otis Redding, Neil Young and other crowd pleasers all done in my own unique way, accompanied by a stomp box triggered by my right foot and an egg shaker strapped to my left, an array of effects pedals and loop station.
