BRIX X YULLI'S BREWING Boilermaker Night
Time & Location
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 Yulli's Brews. What happens when you combine a couple of mates, a bar full of the best craft beer NSW has to offer and a felafel roll working lunch? It seems the answer is a craft brewery! These were the exact ingredients that resulted in James Harvey and Karl Cooney forming Yulli's Brews and releasing their first batch of beer in September 2014.
After many years working at craft beer venue Yulli's Restaurant in Surry Hills, Sydney, James and Karl sought to brew beer that could both stand alone in your every day pub and also accompany food in a fine dining experience.
Like a good dish, each beer has a focus on balance; with malt bills and hop regimes dedicated to this goal. Despite this dedication to the craft, James and Karl's ultimate goal is to produce beer that a bunch of friends or strangers can sit around, laugh and enjoy together!
You will hear from Brix Head Distiller & the Yulli's Team about how they craft their products. The night is sure to get, well, you'll see....
