Wandana are excited to announce our first ever ‘Bites and Brews’. Two sessions available on Saturday 4 June as part of the North Coast Festival of Flavours. They say, ‘Bites & Brews is our fun collaboration with Table Under a Tree. It’s a foray into the wonderful world of matching craft beer with artisan food. We’ll showcase our unique range of small batch brews, all crafted in beautiful Mullum. You’ll learn how each beer is fermented to the vibrations of music; and then get to explore foods that complement the flavours and style of six different beers. All the food being matched will be the product of small-scale producers in the region. You’ll hear from our expert brewer, and Table Under a Tree’s food-loving team will be telling you all about the quirky characters behind each delicious morsel you taste.’

Sessions Times: Sat 4 Jun 2022, 12–1.30pm; Sat 4 Jun 2022, 2–3.30pm
