As we head towards the Holidays things are getting suitably hectic in at the store but we wouldn’t want it any other way. New beers in, orders going out & plenty of Festive cheer on the taps.
Every year we get inundated with online orders around this time of year, which is great. However given the increased load & possible delayed shipping times from AusPost, we want everybody to be aware that orders will have to be processed & paid for by Tuesday 18/12 to give us any chance of customers receiving their parcels before Christmas. While we are happy to receive & fill orders after this date, there is a very strong likelihood that you will not receive them before 25th. I know, bah humbug!
PLENTY OF CHEER THIS YEAR!
This year more than ever we’ve had the ability to source a number amazing festive beers in kegs. So keep your eyes peeled over the next week if you are keen to sample some cheerfully festive beers from some of our favorite brewers including Mikkeller, Birra del Borgo & more.
As always, full tap/growler list can be found on the website: https://slowbeer.com.au//?page_id=261
