High Country Collab Case: a cure for what ales

Each September for the past seven years, High Country brewers have gathered at one of the region’s famous craft breweries to work side-by-side, pooling their knowledge and experience to create a special signature collaborative ale under their own Rule #47 label.

But this year, COVID-19 has meant the annual collaborative brew day won’t happen.

The good news is that this innovative bunch have instead thrown their collective efforts into producing Collab Cases featuring selections of standout beers from seven of the High Country breweries – Bright Brewery, Blizzard Brewing (Dinner Plain), Black Dog Brewery (Taminick), Bridge Road Brewers (Beechworth), King River Brewery (King Valley), Mitta Mitta Brewing Co, Billson’s Brewery (Beechworth).

Collab Cases are available online for anyone in lockdown dreaming of a High Country Brewery Trail road trip or for a loved one in need of a gift of good cheer. Or anyone anywhere in Australia keen to enjoy the best brews from Victoria’s High Country this Spring!

There are three Collab Cases to choose from each packed with a mouthwatering variety of 24 bottles or cans of fine seasonal and limited-releases, plus a couple of core faves, from each. They are:

● Dark & Stormy: 24 x Dark and decadent beers featuring a delicious selection of Porters, Stouts, Black Ales, Dark Lagers and Doppelbocks

● Light & Bright: 24 x Pale beers. A vibrant selection of Ginger Beer, Fruited Sours, Hoppy Ales, IPAs, and more.

Mix It Up (half dark/half light): 24 x beers – half dark / half light. The perfect mix of dark and decadent beers, with light, fruity, sour, hoppy and vibrant brews to balance it all out.

High Country Brewery Trail Collab Cases are available for pre-sale until 11.59pm Sunday Oct 16, 2020. Shipping is free within Victoria and at a flat rate of $9.95 across Australia.

We are reopening! Come and have a beer with us!

After more than 70 days in virtual isolation due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are looking forward to reopening our beautiful venue to customers on June 1, 2020.

So come and have a beer with us!

From June 1, we will be able to welcome 40 guests – 20 inside and 20 outside – to join us for a meal and a drink. We expect this to increase to 50 inside and 50 outside from June 22, as per government directives.

Bookings

Our kitchen and bar will be open for meals and drinks all day from 12pm.

We will operate five bookable sessions every day, and visitors are required to pre-book. The sessions will run at:

12pm – 1.45pm

All sessions will run for 1 hour and 45 minutes, after which time, guests will vacate the venue so it can be thoroughly cleaned ahead of the next session, in accordance with government regulations.

Due to government regulations, a maximum of six people may sit at each table. You are welcome to book for a larger party but you will need to split over multiple tables.

When you make your booking, please let us know whether you’d prefer to sit inside or outside. But please also note that, while we will do our absolute best to accommodate, weather and government regulations may mean we are unable to accommodate all requests. If seating requests exceed capacity in a dining space, requests will be accommodated on a first-booked, first-seated basis.

Please also note that, due to government regulations, all customers dining with us are required to be having a meal, and must provide their name and phone number.

Booked tables will be held for 15 minutes past the booked time. If you are unable to make your booked time, please let us know in advance, so we can offer the table to someone on our waitlist. After being closed for so long, we’re keen for as many people as possible to have the chance to enjoy a Bright Brewery experience.

Walk-in customers

We are happy to accommodate walk-in customers – if we are not already at capacity within the venue. All walk-in customers will be required to vacate at the end of the session, and to provide their name, address, email, and phone number, as per government regulations. However, we encourage anyone planning to visit us to book in advance.

Take-away meals & beer

We will continue to offer takeaway meals and beer from 12pm every day. All menu items will be available to takeaway, and customers can order at the bar, or by calling 03 5755 1301.
