About the Event

Stories are murky as to how the boilermaker first came into existence, but it’s pretty clear that the drink was originally consumed by blue collar workers at the end of a long shift – which is why it’s now become the shift drink of choice among bartenders. 

It’s believed the drink takes its name from the workers who built and maintained steam locomotives in the 1800s. These workers were known to head to the bar at the end of the shift and a shot of whiskey with a beer became a staple for quickly easing the pain that came from a hard day of back-breaking labor. As it was the drink consumed by boilermakers, it took on the name as well.

Every month, in honour of these blue-collar workers, we feature a different Craft Brewery and match their beers up with our delicious rum selection. Our boilermaker specials run all month, but the perfect pairings culminate in one night of fun, frivolity & other F-words. It's friggin' fantastic!

So join us this month as we feature Philter, one of Marrickville's newest craft breweries. Philter's beers have been around for a few years now and are always top notch, but recently the team have opened an amazing brewery in the heart of Marrickville where you can sit and sip on a few brews whilst watching them being made just metres away!

You will hear from Brix Head Distiller, Shane Casey & Philter's Head Brewer,Samantha Fuss about how they craft their products. The night is sure to get, well, you'll see....
