Don’t get me wrong; I don’t mind the odd sip of beer. I adore cooking with it (chocolate stout cake is on high rotation) . I just don’t think I could comfortably down a whole pint by myself. And so this blog – catering to my personal tastes – tends not to share a whole lot about the brewed stuff. In seven days Good Beer Week will be upon so getting side-tracked by malt and hops is almost unavoidable. There are a few events on the 2014 line-up that will keep the beer averse happy. Here’s a quick guide to Good Beer Week for the Cocktail Lover:
Beer Cocktail Degustation at 1806/The Understudy – weeklong – What’s better than one complex beer cocktail? Three beer cocktails!
Tales of the Beer Cocktail at Lily Blacks – weeklong – Classic beer cocktails featuring craft beers alongside hot pretzels sound pretty darn tasty.
Double Beer Bubbles at Double Happiness – weeklong – Beer + Bubble Cups; what could possibly go wrong?
Beer & Botanicals at The Beaufort – Tue 20th May – Bass & Flinders will add extra ‘spirit’ to this event.
Uncle Cavalier at Uncle St Kilda – Tue 20th May – Beer cocktails go on holiday to Vietnam.
Deluxe Ice Creams at Bimbo Deluxe – Wed 21st May – There will be beer ice cream. I’m game.
