4 Pines Russian Roulette — Sun 26 Jun

June 26, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm


A truly unique Sunday arvo brewing experience from 4 Pines…



  Sun 26 Jun    1pm–3.30pm (bus pick-up 12pm/return 4.30pm Central Station)    4 Pines Brookvale Brewery, 4G 9-13 Winbourne Rd, Brookvale 2100
 $45 members, $60 non-members

With their favourite two things in mind – beer and fun – our very talented mates up on the Northern Beaches have come up with a plan so crazy, it just might work. The 4 Pines team have assembled one-of-a-kind, home-made pilot brewery, especially for this event. The plan is then for our guests to work with said contraption to help create a very special beer.

Guests will be split up into three groups: one to select the malts, one to choose the hops, and the third to pick the yeast strain. Each team will work independently, and contribute to an ale that will be named ‘4 Pines Russian Roulette’. The brewing process will be overseen by the masterful 4 Pines team.

While 4 Pines may or may not be entering the Roulette into any beer awards, all guests/collaborators are invited to return to brewery once it’s bottled to collect their very own piece of brewing history. If it’s a cracker, you may even see it featured as an actual 4 Pines Keller Door brew down the track. If it fails miserably… well, at least we can all have a good laugh about it.

As well as a tour of the brewery, all guests will receive 4x half-pints from the 4 Pines range (during the above festivities), and a giant helping of 4 Pines’ legendary pizza pie. Transport from Central Station is included in the ticket price, courtesy of Dave’s Brewery Tours.

To accompany the brewing process and tour, guests will each receive two half-pints of 4 Pines Pale Ale, and two half-pints from the 4 Pines Keller Door range or from the award-winning 4 Pines core range. The bar is built into an old Dodge showcasing 21 of 4 Pines taps, including the core range crowd pleasers, and rotating taps to showcase the large variety of small batch Keller Door range. Attendees can select from the beer range available on the day.

Pizza pie
Unique to 4 Pines, the 4 Pines Pale Ale Pizza Pies have been created by their head chef by using the aforementioned award-winning Pale Ale in the dough recipe instead of water, shaping the pizza base into a pie for ease of eating and filling it with delicious, fresh and in-house made toppings.

Tickets include transport to and from Brookvale courtesy of Dave’s Brewery Tours. Bus leaves at 12pm at Central Station, all ticket holders will be emailed with details of the meeting point.

Bonus beer
All guests are invited to come back to the brewery to collect a free 4 Pines Keller Door Russian Roulette, once it’s brewed, conditioned and fit for human consumption!
