Our Good Beer Week oak-stravaganza turns five this year and to celebrate we’ve loaded the furnace to melting point!
It’s no secret that we love wood here at 3 Ravens. Wood plays a huge role in a lot of our favourite things - wild brews, barrel-aged strong ales, spirits, barbecue and live music (to name just a few). When you combine all of these you end up with our favourite party of the year - Woods Of The North.
Off the back of last years roaring success, we’ve brought on board three of Melbourne’s hospitality heavy weights - Boilermaker House, Mjølner and Mesa Verde - and two of Melbourne’s most creative brewers - Dollar Bill and Future Mountain - to showcase and celebrate their treasured barrel-aged brews.
Each brewer has been partnered with a cocktail bar to create a beer inspired by one of the bars signature cocktails. On the flipside, the bartenders have created a unique cocktail inspired by one of the brewers flagship beers.
The bars have also lined up three of their favourite oak-aged spirits (you’ve seen these venues back bars right?) to pair with treasured barrel-aged beers from each brewer’s cellar to create a boilermaker menu for the ages. Or if you prefer your spirits paired with barrel-aged pickle juice we’ve got you covered.
There will be wood-smoked and coal-fired meat and veg on the menu, alongside deep fried barrel-aged feta balls, barrel-aged pickles, some very special barrel aged sauces, and barrel aged water to keep you hydrated of course.
Ticket price includes a serve of all six beers, lunch, three cocktails, spirit samples and boilermaker pairings, plus some raucous live music to keep the good times (and barrels) rolling.
You wood be mad not to!
