Craft Beer Week Begins !!

On Sunday we launched our events for craft beer week. We’ve teamed up with a couple of our favourite brewers who have a bit of a residency on our taps to do have a bit of fun with our old friend beer.

Dr Karl’s Beer and Cheese Sensory Explosion
Doc (from Doctor’s Orders Brewing) and myself (Karl) have teamed up to match some local, interstate and international sour beers with a bunch of interesting cheeses. Doc’s keg of Electrolyte is tapped keg is tapped and the cheese is cut.

IPA a Day
Yep, the boys at the Grifter and Yulli’s beer dude Harvs have been on the brew. They’ve put together 4 IPA’s, 3 of which have used the same wort (malty, juicy goodness) but undergone different hopping regimes (balancing/bittering and aromatic elements). The fourth is a celebratory ale commemorating the birth of Grifter head brewer Glen’s first born. We’ll be tapping our first of the IPAs tomorrow (Wednesday).

Kokonatsu Launch
We’re climaxing in a frothy, coconuty mess this Saturday at 2pm with the launch of the Two Birds and Grifter collaboration brew Kokonatsu. Can you think of anything more right now than brown ales and coconuts? After the launch there will be a brew battle between a couple of 2 birds kegs and the Grifter’s brews, them ladies look like they can scrap – Grifter boys beware.


An old friend plays some tunes

This Sunday, fresh from many years of touring with Jersey Boys, a great friend of Yulli’s Glen Moorehouse will be pulling up a window seat bustin some tunes. He’ll be playing a mix of originals and covers from about 2pm.

Grifter’s Omen Porter

Just tapped and yum…
The oatmeal gives it great body and mouthfeel, it has a beautiful creamy head and a tasty roasted late pallet. The boys tell me there is no smoked malt but that smokey/roasted flavour really comes through.

Sunday sessions with Gareth Jay

Come down on Sunday afternoon to listen to Gareth Jay sing away the afternoon. From 2pm ’til 5pm he’ll be making some sweet tunes.

Listen to one of his originals here

Sunday Songwriter Sessions and Panang Curry

This Sunday will feature the lovely Bec O’brien in the main seating area of Yulli’s from 2pm check her out at Siri, our head chef, is cracking out her highly sought after Panang Curry (Vegan/GF) as this week’s special so with Bec on the mic and Siri in the kitchen it should be a bit of sensory intensity this Sunday.

Check out the pic of the Stone Beer matched with baked lemony cheesecake. The Stone beer is a limited release winter brew from the Stone and Wood Brewery, it’s brewed over hot rocks which are heated in a wood fire giving the beer an amazing malty toffee flavour.
