Woods of The North is 3 Ravens celebration of all things wood.
This year we've invited some of Australia's most creative breweries and cideries to showcase their treasured barrel aged brews, as well as one international guest - the godfather of bourbon barrel aged Stouts!
Guests include Boatrocker Brewers & Distillers, Goose Island, Hop Nation, Sailors Grave Brewing , Wildflower Brewing & Blending , Willie Smith's Cider Makers, Melbourne Moonshine, Starward Distillery, Hippocampus Distillery, Charles Oates Distilling, Cedar Fox Distilling Co., and Faire Ferments Co-Op Cider.
Each Australian brewer will be pouring two different treats - one carefully plucked from their barrel cellar, and the other a brew of their choice, refermented in (and served directly from) a 50L STARWARD whisky cask.
Alongside the brewers will be a standout selection of local distilleries exhibiting their woody wares. Meet and chat with brewers, distillers and brand ambassadors whilst they pour you their barrel aged creations.
Venture into the boilermaker bar where expert drinkers will be on hand to pair your beverage of choice with a delicious hand-made craft spirit.
Soak all of this up with a whisky barrel fueled oak smoked bbq from Burn City Smokers and live music.
Ticket price is all-inclusive and there will be a shuttle to and from Thornbury station available on the day.
Additionally, guests will receive an exclusive event-only take-home collaboration "bonbonniere" bottle conditioned blend of wild, sour and farmhouse beers from all five Australian breweries.
This is a true celebration of all things 'wood'. Need we say more?
