A weekend dosed in sour power, art and music
Bodriggy Brewing Co. is set to once again host its summer sour beer festival Electric Kool-Aid. Taking place over three days from 11-13 March Bodriggy Brewpub will play host to ten of the best breweries in the industry, with a jam-packed program of diverse performances including dance, live music and more.
Festival-goers can expect a stellar entertainment line-up of over 30 acts, including Ben Fester, Big Yawn, Colette, Dawn Again, Greetings, Kgomotso, Polito, Squid Nebula, with more acts to be announced soon.
The participating breweries will be creating brand new froffs especially for the festival. The brand-new beers will include a mixture of kettle and barrel aged sours, fruity sour beers and more from the likes of Garage Project, Future Mountain, Dollar Bill Brewing, Black Arts, Sailors grove and Site FP.
In the meantime, Bodriggy will present Bodriggy Sunday Record Fair on Sunday 13th February, with the collision of Melbourne Backline and Sonic Rendezvous Music for an early afternoon eclectic vinyl dig, courtesy of one of Melbourne’s biggest collectors. Barry Sunset will be spinning vinyls come afternoon to accompany the ice cold froffs, tacos and thousands of records waiting to be flipped through.
On Thursday 24th February, One Night in Oaxaca, will transform Stingrays Upstairs into a saloon-turn-Latin-restaurant. A love letter to mezcal, craft beer and traditional Oaxacan food, the night will involve a specially crafted four-course banquet led by Bodriggy’s talented team of chefs. Enjoy enfrijoladas, memelitas and tamales among new and old friends and feast on mole and carne asada, expertly matched to a selection of craft beers and mezcal cocktails. This eclectic event presents old world hospitality in a new world space with glittering mirror balls and velvet booths.
Death by Taco is also back every Monday, where tacos at Bodriggy are $5, taco and pint combos are $15, and frozen margaritas are $12, all day.
Bodriggy Brewing Co. is the brainchild of Dr Morse owners Jon Costelloe, Anthony Daniel and Pete Walsh, featuring a huge bar with 64 taps pouring craft beers, wine and cocktails, and a dining area serving up delicious Latin American fare by chef John Dominguez. Guests can expect live music and DJs, offering so much more than a typical brewery.
