In the lead-up to the craft beer fest Beertopia on 18 and 19 November this year, Ovolo Hotels (the festival’s official hospitality sponsor) are kicking off a fun series of events at Ovolo Southside that showcase a selection of the breweries that will be pouring at the event next month.
Kicking things off on Friday, 4 November at ABOVE, Ovolo Southside’s chilled rooftop bar, Southern-Brew will feature a live DJ, a range of beers on tap and yummy beer-inspired nibbles such as pumpkin and porter soft pretzels, smoked ale and chipotle chicken wings and beef sliders with melted beer and hot-sauce-infused Cheddar. Games are also on the cards, with the opportunity for guests to win prizes including tickets to Beertopia and complimentary nights at Ovolo Southside. Tickets for the two-hour event (7–9pm) are priced at $199 and can be purchased at the door or in advance via Eventbrite for a fee.
On Saturday, 12 November from 6pm till late, ABOVE will be the setting for HK brewery Young Master Ales' third anniversary after-party. Young Master Ales pints will be yours for the sipping for $40 all night long, and the first 20 guests to arrive will be treated to a signature beer cocktail on the house, with door prizes on offer for one and all. To help to soak up all the brew, guests can indulge in a selection of beer-influenced small bites, from Young Master The Rye on Wood-braised pulled pork sliders to beer-battered chips with hop mayo and porter.
