Arbory serves up beer-inspired dishes with acclaimed Melbourne chefs for Good Beer Week

Good Beer Kitchen returns to Melbourne’s iconic Arbory Bar & Eatery.

Good Beer Kitchen is back on deck at Arbory Bar & Eatery, celebrating some of Australia’s best brewers as a part of the Good Beer Week program on Saturday, 15 May, giving a nod to pairing at its best.

Known as the festival’s favourite long lunch, Good Beer Kitchen will host four acclaimed Melbourne chefs who will dish up four beer-inspired courses. Arbory’s very own Executive Chef Nick Bennett has rounded up some of his mates, challenging them to cook a dish using or served alongside their favourite ferment.

Joining Nick in the kitchen this year is James Gibson (Head Chef Arbory Bar & Eatery), Renee Trudeau (Little Latin Lucy) and Oliver Hagen (Hagen’s Organics).

To celebrate some of the country’s finest craft beers, the partnering brewers showcased are Stomping Ground (VIC), Mountain Goat (VIC), Wolf In The Willows (VIC), and Pirate Life (SA).

Looking after the day’s proceedings will be proclaimed foodie and radio voice Cam Smith, the host of the longest-running food show in Australia, 3RRR’s Eat It program.

“I am so pumped to be a part of Good Beer Kitchen. It continues to astound me as to how great a match beer is with food and seeing the increasing sophistication and assuredness of the food and beer pairings over the last six years. I can’t wait to see what our chefs come up with for this year’s event. Craft beer, great food by the river, it’s a cracker!”

Cam will guide guests through each course, chatting to each chef and brewer to find out more about the inspiration behind each dish and beer being served.

Tickets for Good Beer Kitchen are $80, inclusive of four specially curated courses as well as a beer from each brewery.

See you at the kitchen with a cold one in tow.
