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).
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.
This Sunday will feature the lovely Bec O’brien in the main seating area of Yulli’s from 2pm check her out at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4g8-YOGUA4. 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.
Beers and Bards is on again on Tuesday 21st May. There’s been a bit of chatter about it because we are lucky enough to have Bravo Child headlining which is kind of a big deal. Alana Hicks will also be strutting her stuff along with a chat from Happy Goblin Brewer Colin about his Bitter, which is a cracker – beautiful creamy head, fantastic malt and lovely hop balance make for a very drinkable ale!
The menu for the night will be:
Braised figs stuffed w herbed feta
Mini Massaman Pie w mash

Next Sunday is the Crown St Crawl which is a bit of a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Brigade Surry Hills. There will be of lots events going on and we’ll be hosting ten-pin bowling on the astro turf, facepainting for the kids, a splash of live art with local painter Dom Byrne and of course a few live tunes with different Surry Hills favs. For more info, check out http://www.urbanwalkabout.com/crownstcrawl
As we like to do this time of year, we’ll be running a bit of a fundraiser this Sunday night. It’s to raise a few clams for the Boys and Girl’s Brigade who are based just behind Yulli’s on Riley St Surry Hills. They do a bang up job helping out kids and families who need it in the local area. Let’s talk business… the cost is $40 a head and for this, you get a 3 course dinner, some sweet live tunes from Steve Bones Martin (who is donating his time) and lots of good mojo as $15 of your meal ticket goes straight to the boys and girls brigade! Our lovely head chef Siri is donating her time as are lots of the staff. We won’t hit you up for more cash on the night so don’t fret that! If you’d like to book dinner or a table, please do so on 9319 6609 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The dudes from Beer Days will be hosting a tasting at Yulli’s Screening Room on Wednesday the 22nd of August. Karl will be matching 6 of the beers with something delicious from the menu. 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. Just the thing for the last of these chilly winter evenings mmm.
