One of the newest and exciting craft beer breweries in the Yarra Valley is run by two highly experienced brewers and their families. Always ready to try new and exciting ways to explore their craft, and educate fellow beer lovers, Watts River Brewing’s managers are contributing to this year’s Melbourne Craft Beer Festival.
When interviewed by the Crafty Pint website, one of the brewers, Ben Hamilton is quoted as saying, ‘I love the processes and technology behind brewing beer and being able to create a great tasting beer that starts with basic raw ingredients.’ Both Ben and his business partner, Aaron Malmborg’s, obvious love of the brewing process has resulted in one of the Yarra Valley’s most enthusiastic breweries.
The first, in honour of Melbourne’s Good Beer Week Craft Beer Festival, is BARREL MIXOLOGY AT WATTS RIVER BREWERY
For a ticket price of just $24, fellow craft beer lovers, and interested participants, will be guided through Ben and Aaron’s brewery. During the tour, the brewers will explain the Watts River brewing process, and guests will get the chance to mix their own beer according to their particular taste. We’re sure the brewers will keenly answer almost any questions you come up with, and you will be left with the absolute belief that these guys love their beer.
This educational (and tasty) experience should not only excite your taste buds, but also give you an interesting and unique insight into the world of crafted beer. Don’t leave it too late to book, the Barrel Mixology experience is limited to a select group, and will no doubt, book out quickly.
