March 10, 2018 Beverage No Comments Email Email

Have an egg-cellent time this long-weekend at Port Stephens’ annual Easter Blues& Brews festival. Local beer and spirits maker, Murray’s Craft Brewing Co, is putting on a family-friendly show for the senses, running all long-weekend.

Visitors can enjoy a dual line-up of once-a-year holiday brews – Murray’s Chocolate Easter Egg Beer AND its famous Hot Cross Bun Beer!

Groove to FREE blues concerts on Easter Saturday and Easter Sunday. Talented local musicians, Danny and Jake, will help you chillout with contemporary tunes on Saturday. And on Easter Sunday, the amazing Lamplighters Big Band will perform its own flavour of blues in a dazzling outdoor show.

Devour delicious gourmet pizzas and smoky barbecue fare fresh from the wood fired oven, teamed with your favourite brew or wine. Great value $10 Kids Meal Deals – including meal, drink and ice cream – are available all weekend.  Murray’s Brewery is also open for dinner Easter Saturdaynight.

And kids can have great fun with dedicated activities on Easter Sundaymorning, when Murray’s will run a special family fundraising event, Easter Sunday Kids Funday.  Kids can enjoy a giant Easter egg hunt, play an interactive Easter game (byo mobile device!), join the Easter-themed arts and crafts, face painting and more – including a VIP visit from the Easter Bunny.

 Parents are asked to make a $5 donation for each child participating in the morning’s activities, with 100% of proceeds donated to The Rural Fire Service.

“Join us this Easter and you can enjoy a great family day out plus do some good for the local community at the same time,” said Brewery owner, Murray Howe. “Easter Ale is one of our most requested specialty beers and we’re going the whole bunny and offering up our delicious Chocolate Easter Egg Beer too. It’s going to be amazing family fun,” says Brewery owner, Murray Howe.

The festival is a tribute to flavour, fine tunes and family fun – and runs all Easter long weekend. It’s a great opportunity to sample a range of different craft beer styles and cider, taste local and regional wines, and learn how craft beer is made by taking a Brewery Tour.

A Brewery Bus is available on Easter Saturday and Sunday. Bookings are essential.

A giant Easter egg hunt, Easter-themed interactive game, Easter-themed arts and crafts, face painting and a VIP visit from the Easter Bunny will feature at this year’s special family fundraising event, Murray’s Easter Sunday Kids Funday.

Being held this Easter Sunday 1 April at Murray’s Brewery & Port Stephens Winery, Port Stephens, Easter Sunday Kids Funday is a special event which will raise funds for the Rural Fire Service.

Parents are asked to make a $5 donation for each child participating in the morning’s kids’ activities, with 100% of proceeds donated to the Rural Fire Service.

“We invite families to come along and play our Easter interactive game, create craft masterpieces with their children and join the Easter Bunny to celebrate Easter – it’s an amazing family day relaxing and spending quality time together. Join us this Easter and enjoy a great family day out and do something good at the same time,” said Brewery owner, Murray Howe.

And Easter Sunday need not be just for the kids. Murray’s Brewery hosts its annual Easter Blues & Brews Festival across the Easter long weekend, with a FREE live blues concert featuring The Lamplighters on Easter Sunday, and local singers Danny and Jake performing the blues on Easter Saturday.

The Easter long weekend also marks the Brewery’s highly anticipated release of its hugely popular Easter Ales – Chocolate Easter Egg Beer AND Hot Cross Bun Beer!

“Chocolate Easter Egg Beer is a really decadent brew and when it hits your lips it’s like an alcohol-infused chocolate explosion. And our Hot Cross Bun Beer literally tastes like a hot cross bun – but in a glass. It’s chock full or raisins, cinnamon and spices and extremely delicious,” says Murray.
