Giulians 2nd Meet the Brewer and Putt for Cash evening was a great success! Congratulations to Allan Alvarez – the winning putt of the evening!

Thank you to all who attended and for those of you who couldn’t make it- here are some of the highlights.

 

 

The Brewer

So what happens when 2 American-born lacrosse players with a love of homebrew, meet halfway across the world?  They open a brewery in Sydney of course!  In 2013 Andrew Fineran and Chris Sidwa opened Batch Brewing Co, transforming an old panel-beaters workshop space in Marrickville into a brewery and tasting room – complete with polished concrete, black walls, mural art and an ethos of ‘we brew for you‘.  And brew is what they do.

Batch Brewing Company brews beer the traditional way, handcrafted and batch by batch.  Apart from a few regulars, the range changes every few weeks – so each batch is a limited release.  If you head to Batch Brewing Co’s website you can check out each their batches, past and present (all 169 of them!)

You can drop in to taste the latest batches and take home a growler (1.89L), a bomber (640ml) or a 4 pack (440ml cans) filled with the beer of your choice.   Batch also offer private brewery tours, where they will show you around, and share the science and art behind each Batch. Tours are on Saturday and Sunday at 12:30pm and 2:30pm by booking only, so email howdy@batchbrewingco.com.au for more information and to book in.

The Beer

Tom Walker of Batch Brewing took us through some beers on the evening.  Four beers were for tasting – American Pale Ale, Trippy Hippie’s Voodoo Gold, Pash the Magic Dragon and Elsie the Milk Stout.  Scroll down for tasting notes and other information on each beer!

The Putting

Jorge, taking the first putt of the evening – and it was a close one!
Looking good!
Maybe next time Greg!
Is this the look of hope Lance?
Speed-racer Eugene.
Nice try Navodit!
Don’t worry Robin, no-one is watching!
No luck this time Phil!
Josh from the Four Seasons, channelling his inner Rambo? Unfortunately, it didn’t work!
Deep in concentration, little did Adam know Allan was about to wander on in!
Our serial late-comer has his 1st putt, within 2 minutes of stepping in the door.
Winner winner! Well done Allan.
Vini, trying to add a little tailwind to his putt…
…I’m thinking it didn’t work!
Action shot – better luck in November Nick!
No luck this time Mark!
Better luck next time Himalaya!
The closing putt of the evening – not even David could steal the prize from Allan.
Beer in one hand, a prize in the other!
What’s that old saying – winners are grinners?!

Thanks again to everyone who came along, and we look forward to seeing everyone at our next Meet the Brewer night (or maybe something different), which will be on Wednesday 14th November.  The pot will be reset to $500!
