A great time was had by all guests at the Criterion Hotel in Warwick on Friday night, 28 June, as they hosted the very popular Craft Beer Tasting event.
A man with many years of experience in the craft beer industry, known as the ‘Beer Bear’, took guests on a journey through the wonders of craft beer land.
The night was enjoyed by all attendees, from those that had never tried craft beer and for those that have been drinking craft beer for a long time.
Criterion Hotel manager Kylie Jenner said that the night was special as they normally only test eight beers but attendees on the night got to try 10 beers and a range of premium spirits from the Beenleigh Distillery, not just their rum but also their gorgeous Gin.
Regular to the Criterion Hotel’s Craft Beer tastings is local business David Martin and he said that he loved the experienced presenter discussing history about the beer.
“Good people. Good beer. Good night,” David said.
A first-timer to the tastings was Liam Graham who travelled from Brisbane and he said that the night was filled with good vibes and quality products.
“There was a quality spokesperson and I really liked the majority of the beers,“ Liam said.
“It was a good night and I really enjoyed it.“
Peter and Josette Bradshaw travelled to the event from Bribie Island and said that they were in the area for the Warrengarra steam train trip.
“Although I’m not really a beer person, it was interesting and good to try something different,“ Josette said.Another attendee, Grace Andrew, was in the area for the weekend after travelling from Brisbane and said that the night was awesome.
