Willie The Boatman’s Beer & Food Truck Festival

Willie The Boatman, St Peter’s very own craft beer brewery and tasting room, is set to host the mother of all beer and food truck festivals this Saturday.

Featuring brews from 10 award-winning local breweries – including the likes of Young Henry’s, Grifter, Batch Brewing Co, Sauce, Wayward, Yulli’s, Shark Island and Stockade as well as Willie the Boatman’s extraordinary creations. Willie The Boatman will have two festival beers on tap, a Brut IPA and a classic Octoberfest Marzen Beer.

“This is not your average Beer Festival,” says Pat McInerney. “This event is all about learning to enjoy matching beers with food.” 

In terms of food there are some classic go-toes for any beer drinker, which essentially boils down to fried food or carbs and thankfully the team behind the festival know this. Some of the options available for attendees include; pizza from Epic Pizza or Italian street food from Inbocca, burgers from Hive Bar Burgers, ribs from Fired Up BBQ, fried chicken from Miss Chantiis and finish off with something sweet from Ciccone & Son Artisinal Ice Cream. Vegans rejoice though you haven’t been forgotten as Yullis will be serving a selection of creative options which pair with beer perfectly.
