Forget the bottle-o on Saturday 4 February, The Stag Public House and NOLA in Adelaide’s East End are joining forces for a ripper day of all things sour beer.
Dubbed Acid Trip Sour Beer Fest, the two venues are bringing together everything that’s weird, wild, funky, and fermented with some huge names in the world of brewing in Australia.
With a theme that screams wilder times, there’ll be a 70s energy in the air with live tunes and DJs spread across NOLA’s laneway and The Stag’s balcony – a great spot for people-watching over Rundle Street, or absorbing the visuals that are the Adelaide Hills and parklands.
As you sip your way around Acid Trip Sour Beer Fest, your taste buds can expect to be tantalised by golden liquids from: Wildflower (NSW), Ministry of Beer (SA), One Drop (NSW), Molly Rose (VIC), Little Bang (SA), Bridge Road (VIC), La Sirene (VIC), Western Ridge (SA), Moon Dog (VIC), Bowden Brewing (SA), and Lone Gum (SA) – just to name a few!
But if you’re not in it for the beer, and just want to catch some good times with mates – the team from Moorak wines will be floating around to alleviate your palate. And the UV paint splatter room upstairs at The Stag is sure to keep you occupied too. I like it, Picasso.
Acid Trip Sour Beer Fest will be up and running across two decent sized sessions – with session one from 1pm until 4pm, and session two in action from 5:30pm through to 8:30pm.
But if that’s not long enough for you, you can always stick around at Nola after the tastings have wrapped up for their live blues ’til heaps later. Or join in on the Acid Trip after party which is set to take over the entire first level of The Stag.
Tickets to Acid Trip Sour Beer Fest on Saturday 4 February are essential and include a groovy festival glass, beer tastings, and basically just a sweet time in a day dripping in sour.
