Event description

Description

The Wilderness Brewing Sessions are about creating a space to explore specialty coffee in the great outdoors.

From curious minds to specialty coffee enthusiasts, the Sessions are perfect seasoned explorers and urban cafe dwellers alike.

Need a reason to head out of the city and get some adventure into your life? Our March event has been ramped up to the hilt and is not for the feint-hearted. We'll be brewing on top of the stunning Sugarloaf Peak in the Cathedral Ranges; approximately 2hrs north-east of Melbourne's CBD. (* see below for a detailed description of the terrain to expect on the walk)

A good level of fitness is required for this Session, as well as stable feet and nerves. You'll be taken on a guided walk from Sugarloaf Saddle up to the Peak which offers incredible 360 degree views of the region. Once at the summit, we'll be brewing sensational coffees from Fox Coffee Roasting Company based in Brisbane.

The format of these Sessions is an informal, chilled out experience where multiple coffees from different regions will be brewed to try. For those new to coffee, there will be plenty of opportunity to learn, ask questions, and brew yourself using the equipment provided.

The standard ticket option (The Explorer) includes entry to the guided walk, the brewing workshop at the summit, the opportunity to try all the coffees available on the day from Fox Coffee and other roasters, as well as a light lunch on return to the car provided by the sensational The Artisan Crust Boulangerie & Patisserie.

Upgraded ticket options are also available for those wanting to take a freshly roasted bag of the feature coffee home with them, or start off into the world of specialty coffee with packages including Aeropresses or grinders.

WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING:

  • Comfortable clothes / shoes for walking
  • All gear needs to be adequate for a serious bushwalk and moderate rock scrambling.
  • A 600ml bottle of water (for brewing)
  • Your favourite camping / enamel mug

OPTIONAL:

  • Any coffee you've been enjoying lately that you'd like others to experience.
  • Your own brewing devices, hand grinders or water boilers (Jetboil etc....)
  • BYO snacks if desired.
  • Any medication you may need (please provide details via private email of any health concerns we need to be aware of)

WHAT WILL BE PROVIDED:

  • There will be a number of Aeropresses and V60's, and hand grinders available on the day.
  • Filter roasts will also be available for those just wanting to come and enjoy what's on hand.
  • Ability to boil water.

This event is strictly limited to 6 spaces, so grab your ticket, throw your gear in your backpack, and join us for a mountain top brew on March 16th at 9am. Clear directions to get there will be emailed out prior to the event.

Due to the pre-orders required, ticket options that include taking home the featured coffee, Aeropresses, or grinders close a week prior to the event. The basic Explorer ticket is available up until the night before.

Likewise, refunds cannot be offered within 7 days of the event on ticket options that require pre-ordering of additional items.

The events will go ahead regardless of weather (except on Code Red fire days or where there is risk of lightning storms).

Any questions, get in touch via Instagram (@bikehikebrew) or email bikehikebrew@gmail.com

We can't wait to see you there!

* depending on the groups preference on the day, either Wells Cave Track or Canyon Track will be taken to the summit. Both tracks involve traversing very rocky terrain and some short bursts of near vertical climbing is required. Plenty of hand and foot holds in these places, but it can be a bit unnerving for those not used to this kind of buskwalking. Please be aware of this ahead of time as it is not recommended for those who have issues with heights or short climbs. Come prepared with appropriate footwear and clothing. If you require more information before signing up, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
