May – July 2013
Our team in Melbourne have been hard at work finding a venue for our winter networking drinks in Melbourne.
What better place to spend an evening indoors networking than the World famous Carlton United Brewery. Home, or former home, to some of the best known and most loved Australians, Fosters, VB and Carlton Draught. Those from the North and West might remember them as Blue, Green and White.
Our special event includes a brewery tour, beer tasting paddle, beer pulling competition, beer trivia and, for the very lucky, some take home prizes. In between we want you to form some business ties, find some new customers or suppliers and generally have a most excellent night.
The event, unfortunately, comes at a price, albeit small. Members pay $40 per person for the package, while others pay just $50 per person.
Members from across the country (even the World, as we have members in Finland you know) are welcome to attend. Bring your colleagues, customers, business partners, suppliers and anyone who might enjoy a beer or the company of like minded business people.
The Carlton BrewHouse is located on the corner of Nelson and Thompson Streets in Abbotsford, Victoria. Approximately 5km or a 15 minute drive from Melbourne’s CBD. Free car parking is provided to all events and tours, the car park is located directly in front of the main entrance located on Thompson Street.
Catch the 109 tram east bound towards Box Hill from Collins Street in the Melbourne city centre. Allow approximately 1/2 and hour for the tram journey and disembark at stop #22. From stop #22 walk back one block in the direction you came from, then turn right down Thompson St. The Carlton Brewhouse is located on the first corner (Nelson St).
