Fancy getting around a fresh hop IPA from BentSpoke Brewing and 19 other Australian crafties on tap while seeing proceeds go towards NSW and QLD flood relief? Look no further as Canberra craft beer haven the Dickson Taphouse readies to host their Flood Relief Festival on April 2.
Following the fallout from the February and March floods in both southern Queensland and stretches of eastern NSW, Canberra’s classic corner pub will showcase a massive tap line-up on the day that will include BentSpoke’s Hop Diver which is brewed in collaboration with the Dickson Taphouse’s director and Tallagandra Hop Farm’s Nick Diver.
Alongside the likes of games, auctions, food and music from The Fuelers and Zambezi Sounds, proceeds from the festival will go directly to those impacted by the floods though givit.org.au.
The Taphouse’s managing director Ben Johnston said: “We know when natural disasters strike, getting basic items directly to those on the ground is critical for the rebuilding of impacted communities. Raising funds for givit.org.au is a really efficient way to provide items such as linen and fridges to those in the affected areas”.
Nick added: “We are excited to be launching this limited release IPA Hop Diver to our local community. This small batch has been a real labour of love, so I can’t think of a better way to celebrate its release by giving to those who have lost everything”.
The Dickson Taphouse’s Flood Relief Festival is on Saturday 2 April from 12pm till late at 30 Woolley St in Dickson, ACT. Entry is free however the organisers hope guests can donate what they can at the door.
