Sheepoll’s Opinion Trivia is the only trivia night in the world with no facts.

“WHAAAT?!”, I hear you say. “No facts?”

Yep. It’s the fake news of trivia nights, where winning is a matter of opinion, and you get to find out how average you actually are. Are you a unique Black Sheep or a run-of-the-mill White Sheep? We’ll find out together in a hilarious 2-hour interactive experience that is part-gameshow, part-improv comedy and part-a-whole-lotta-fun.

Normal trivia so boring! There’s way too much of:
What’s the capital of Vanuatu? (errrrm)
What’s Whoopi Goldberg’s real name? (jeez um)

Think of it as a party before the party, a roadie before the RNA (we are but a short walk for any Beeries attendees), a showcase of (maybe) Brisbane’s Best New Brewery, served to you by (probably not) Brisbane’s Best Beertender. Either way just come and drink some super fresh, super tasty beers.

Tap List:
Table Beer DH Pilsner
Session Ale Columbus
IPA Enigma Galaxy
IPA El Dorado Chinook
Sour Ale Cherry (only keg to leave the brewery!)

The brewery that sets more trends than it follows have created a 9.1% DIPA for their 22nd Birthday:

“Stone 22nd Anniversary Anni-Matter Double IPA is a clean, crisp IPA that reinforces bold, flavorful, juicy IPAs can still be perfectly clear. This beer is proudly haze-free.”

Get thirsty, be Firsty.

On Friday night we’ll be joined by the Hallertau crew and the Epic crew on Saturday night. Beers from each will be pouring both nights.

Stay tuned for the lineup.

Blimey, a whole delightful decade of Beard and Brau Farmhouse Brewery brews has breezed past us! Many of you would’ve sampled many-a tasty drop from these guys over the years, that appeared on some of the earliest Scratch tap line ups. They’ve got a penchant for farmhouse style brews, have long been developing sustainability initiatives on their farm-based brewery, and have supported numerous up and coming brewers through their contract brewing program. To all of that, we say a big old ‘Cheers!’ and congrats on ten years!

Join us for a cheeky tap takeover to celebrate ten tasty years of beers, with some old classics and new releases from these Mt. Tamborine legends. We’ll be pouring the following brews:

Golden Paw – Pale Ale
Red Tail – Amber Ale
Petit Chiens – Farmhouse Ale
Serendipity – Session IPA
John Beere – Handpumped Imperial Porter fermented on Shiraz Oak

Our recent New England IPA from our Sleep When You’re Dead series has caught the attention of craft beer drinkers Australia-wide. Selling out at most locations within two weeks of hitting the shelves, we’re thirsty for the next release!

The Sleep When You’re Dead series are hop loaded beers, 100% cold shipped and sold within 8 weeks of production.

“Anyone familiar with Stone Brewing’s “Enjoy By” series will recognise this transparent and confident approach to selling beers at their freshest. But Ballistic is taking it one step further with a guarantee: not only will retailers no longer be allowed to sell the beers after the eight week Dead By date, if there’s any remaining stock, Ballistic will recall it and credit the retailer. In other words, the Brisbane brewery is doing its damnedest to make it impossible for anyone to get one of these hop-driven SWYD beers in anything less than its ideal state.” – Mick Wust, The Crafty Pint.

Our next SWYD release is dropping on Friday 28th September… the countdown is officially on. Details announced soon. Save the date and be first in to get this exclusive brew!

Buy first, buy fresh, enjoy before the dead by date!

A small band of brewers south of the Brisbane river have banded together to challenge the brewers of the north to a friendly duel of the Craft Brews. We will face off with one beer chosen from each side to compete in the following styles: red, pale ale, stout, and specialty beer. Patrons taking part will choose tasting paddles of two styles only marked with the style and “north/south”.

For instance they might choose red and pale ale and there will be a north and south beer for each. They will then pick which of the representative beers is their favourite in that style on a simple judging sheet. This is semi-blind as we will not tell which brewery made which beer.

The teams are:

The Northern Union – General Fergus “Stonewall” Seppanen of Newstead Brewery:
Newstead Archer
Bravo Brewhaha

The Southern Rebels – General Charlie “Rebel Yell” Hodgson of Helios Brewing:
Ballistic Helios
Black Hops White Lies

Hands down Jester King is our favourite brewery on the planet. Each and every beer they create is a story about the season, the terroir and the people that made it. Much of their beer never leaves the farm it was produced on, let alone makes it down under. That’s why we’re over the moon to be able to present to you six of their beers on tap including the lauded Atrial Rubicite, of which only two kegs have ever left the brewery, and we’ve got one of them. (It’s also the most expensive beer we’ve ever bought, which is saying something for us. Worth every cent of course.)

Our private session runs from 10am-midday, Brewski will be closed to the public during this time. It guarantees you 200ml each of all 6 beers and also first option to purchase a limited amount of Jester King bottle stock. Although private, the session is informal and unstructured. It’s all about the beer. Our kitchen will be open from 10am serving our regular menu and a special breakfast burger, because you may need it. After midday the doors and remaining beer will be open to the public.

Tickets are $88 and include 200ml each of the beers as listed on Facebook. 80 tickets only.

Get your lederhosen ready. Kraftoberfest is back for the third year!

This is not your regular all German beer swilling affair. We are pitching the long-standing brewing traditions of Germany against Australia’s New World brewing. We have five old world Weihenstaphan kegs and five locally brewed beers with a new world twist. It is David v Goliath. Old v New. Germany v Australia. And you decide.

An ongoing ballot will be run throughout the day to decide the ultimate country of brew. Each Aussie-German pair of beers you try, one token will be allocated in order for you to cast your vote. At the end of the day, the votes will be tallied and a champion country will be declared.

The SBC kitchen will be bringing their A-game with a special Australian-German mongrel menu for the day.

This is a free event (for over 18 only), but we will give you the opportunity to pre-purchase your Kraftoberfest experience for $30. Tickets available soon.

Tickets include
-1 x 500mL stein (yours to keep) with your first fill included or 5 tasters;
-1 x Pretzel
-Bonus voting token
– 1 x Weihenstephan traditional hat

We are coming up on our 2nd Birthday this October and we want to party with you!

For this special occasion, we are spreading out to the car park for some live music, Japanese inspired street food, and some cheeky bevvies!

Our good friends from MR. TOKYO DOG will be cooking up a storm from 4PM!

We also have Black Tag Parade providing us with some bangers in the carpark!

Brrrraaaaaiiinnnnns! When there’s no more room in the Netherworld, the dead will walk the earth.

Zombies have taken over all of Brisbane, possibly the world and there is only one last bastion of hope in humanity’s fight for survival – the bloody pub.

Join us for an extremely undead evening of walkers, zombies, roamers or whatever the HELL you want to call them – we just need to work together to see the night through alive!

Dress up in your finest DIY post apocalyptic gear or half chewed gory get up as you and a bar full of hopefully unbitten survivors work to defeat zombies via virtual reality, pinball, RPG’s, board games and much, much more. Watch out for the roaming zombies wandering Fortitude Valley throughout the night.

Pretty Little Thingz – Makeup Professionals will be on site to apply gore and wounds to unfortunate victims.

Free Space VR Arcade will be on site to train up denizens for the impending zombie war.

The Hellmouth Diner will be serving up food as presumably delicious as brains, while the bar will offer up blood ridden cocktails along with a one off zombie fightin’ beer by White Lies Brewing.

The evening will be a ticketed event and closed to the public. Each $15 ticket comes with a schooner of beer, 5 tokens and a zombie enamel pin designed by Schlock Lobster.

It happens in the lead up to Halloween on Monday the 22nd of October from 6.30pm until 11pm.

Grab tickets via valleyzombies.eventbrite.com.au!
