The Biggest Tap Takeover in Australian History

Feral Brewing, Australia's craft brewing golden child, is WA’s largest independent craft brewery. 

Based in the heart of the Swan Valley, they've received more than their fair share of awards including: The best Australian craft beer (2012, 2013, 2014 Hottest 100 Beers) Best Large Australian Brewery (2013 AIBA), Best Australian Beer (2012 Beer and Brewer), Best Western Australian Brewery + Best Commercial Brewery (2010 Perth Royal Beer Show) and the list goes on and on and on... 

Since launching 11 years ago, Feral's flagship brews; Feral White, Smoked Porter, Sly Fox, and Hop Hog have gained both local and international acclaim. Don't let these beers fool you though, Feral also aren't afraid to get a little strange and funky with their brewing - brews made with freshly picked local watermelons, jasmine or green tea leaves?

So I guess you probably want to try some of this stuff now right? Well on the 27th and 28th of March, Literally every single one of Forester's Hall' 50 taps will be turned over to 32 of Feral Brewing's multiple award winning brews... That's right, 32 different Feral beers all on tap, some never before seen in Victoria before. 

Join us on Friday when we tap the glorious kegs and dance the night away before returning for a good ol fashioned Ho Down on Saturday: we've got food courtesy of Collingwood's favourite smokehouse: Bluebonnet, hillbilly bands, line-dancing, games, giveaways + more

For a small price you can also meet the head brewer, Brendan Varis, in a VIP Q/A and tasting session whilst sampling his favourite beers.

Stone Brewing is Coming

For those who are unacquainted with Stone Brewing Company, let us give you a bit of a rundown: It’s the Largest brewery in Southern California, the tenth largest craft brewery in America and (according to Beer Advocate) is the #1 all-time top brewery on the planet!

To many, Stone is the forefather of the modern craft beer movement. Few people are as enthusiastic about craft beer as the CEO and co-founder - Greg Koch, who has committed his life to preaching beery gospel around the world.

After opening in 1996, the brewery churned out their first brew: the Stone Pale Ale, which is still considered to be an all time classic. Since this time, they’ve gotten pretty experimental with their hops, their alcohol content and their late additions (think rose hip, kaffir lime leaves and New Mexico chillies)

Hopefully you can understand why we are literally buzzing with excitement at the news that that Stone Brewing will be launching in Australia… at Forester’s Hall.

Mitch Steele, the head brewer of Stone is coming to Forester's Hall with five, super fresh, cold-airfreighted kegs of his finest brews.

Join us on this momentous occasion for delicious beer, North American rock, Californian cuisine (house made tacos and pizza) and of course, some of the best beer in the world.

Beers on offer include:
- Stone IPA
- Sublimey Self Righteous
- Arrogant Bastard
- Go To IPA
- Stone Delicious

You can also grab a VIP ticket to meet Mitch Steele and partake in an intimate tasting and education session at 6:30PM

Stone beers will be available to the general public for purchase by the pot after 10PM

Introducing... The Delmont IPA from Mt Goat.

A very special keg release this Friday night at Forester's Hall, with only a handful throughout the country, the Delmont IPA will surely be one for the history books.

Named after one of the great characters and all round nice guys of the Australian Craft Beer industry, Mountain Goat's own, Tommy Delmont.

This 7% West Coast style IPA is big, dry and very drinkable, much like Tommy himself.

It lies within the vain of some of the great West Coast IPA's such as the unmissable Ballast Points Sculpin IPA and Russian Rivers Pliny The Elder.

Join the man himself, big Tommy D, between 6-7pm when he jumps behind the bar to have a chat and pours you some of his very own beer.
