Three little words that resonate with beer drinkers across the land – ‘Crack a coldie’ – and as true-blue Aussies will attest, nothing beats a coldie at the end of a day of hard yakka.

There’s no doubt American-born Chuck Hahn has learned his fair share of Aussie slang after close to 40 years in the country. He’s also learned enough about Aussies to know what they want when it comes to their brew.

Chuck is coming to Twin Towns for the Ultimate Beer Experience. In an evening of tales and ales, you’ll taste a selection of beers specially chosen by Chuck, and a five-course menu to compliment Chuck’s choices.

Chuck will share some yarns about beer and his inspiring journey to becoming Australia’s most prolific brewer. If you don’t know the legacy of James Squire, you soon will.

If beer is your passion, don’t miss the chance to crack a coldie with the Godfather of Australian brewing at Twin Towns. The event takes place on Friday 9 August at 6.30pm at Horizons at Twin Towns. Tickets are $65 per person and they’re selling fast.
