Day 198: The Flavour Merchants
We were invited to join our friends and help out at the Beer Deluxe, taking place at Federation Square. We had known since introduction that our buddy Hamish started a micro brewery with his long time friends, but had yet to taste their brew or see them in operation. Today was our chance. We were given behind the scenes access, as we helped them pour for the crowd as well as unveil a new brew! I took to the task like a seasoned marketeer and Diana was the pretty face to draw "them" in. Or at least thats what I thought about it. We hawked the Pilsner, Premium Pale Ale, and NEW to the market, Witbier. It was a really fun experience. I especially liked walking around in my Hawthorn gear, and tasting beer from all the other micro brewery's. However, hands down, Hawthorn was our favorite. And its not because we're partial. So, thank you to the guys at Hawthorn. We really appreciate the opportunity and will offer a labor for beer sample swap anytime. Ciao!
