After the success of last year, we’re thrilled to be opening our Murwillumbah brewery’s doors to support the community’s charity of choice, The Wedgetail Retreat.
Get along to our family friendly event Saturday 14 April, from 11am – 5pm. There’ll be brewery tours, scrumptious eats, live bands, local artists, Malt Disney – fun for the kids, market stalls and of course, fresh, cold beers straight from the source…
Peruse our curated selection of market stalls, featuring local artisans, illustrators, painters, ceramicists and upcycled timber craftsman, as well as food stalls Murwillumbah Farmers Markets, Mad Mountain Farm and Tropical Fruit World. All will be selling their goods, wares and some are offering workshops, including, Boomerang Bags and Bee Folk – creators of Beeswax Wraps.
Food trucks JR Smokehouse and JuJu’s, two of the region’s best, will be pulling up to keep bellies full. A coffee cart will be there for any needing caffeine buzz, plus they’ll be a soda and water refill station for hydration… please make sure you bring your re-usable cups!
Introducing our designated Kid’s area…Malt Disney, kids entertainment sorted! For a gold coin donation the youngsters will be able to enjoy the jumping castle, crafts, entertainment by Captain Jack and face painting.
Now let’s talk about beer… and not just any beer. Back by popular demand from last year, we’ve brewed our exclusive Pilot Batch ‘Murbah Swamp Beer’. An ode to a legendary local tale… where back in 2001, a semi-trailer carrying pallets of beer ran off the Pacific Highway. As cartons of brews fell into the Tweed River…the locals wasted no time in diving in to salvage what they could (some were still icey-cold). For those frothers who’ve followed the Murbah Swamp Beer tale, we’ve also created an exclusive, organic cotton Swamp Beer Tee which will be available for purchase from the merch tent on the day (all profits from tee sales will be donated to the Wedgetail Retreat).
We will also be operating our cup exchange initiative #forcupssake eliminating single use cups from our events! All our beers will be poured in our re-useable cups. Exchange them for a fresh beer, or refund them on exit or keep them as a momento from the Open Day.
Our tribute ‘Murbah Swamp Beer’ will be tapped at Open Day alongside a few of our other refreshing brews straight from the tank. Beers will be $6 and there is a gold coin entry fee, with all profits raised donated to the Wedgetail Retreat, so they can continue their amazing work helping the community.
Set to be our best Open Day yet, we’re keeping the rocking music line-up a secret… be sure to keep an eye on our socials to find out whose playing! We’ll also be announcing the event’s bus timetable soon!
So, lock in the date, Saturday 14 April, and get along to our second brewery’s Open Day to support an epic local cause.
