Carols By The Brewery

The boys from Willie the Boatman are throwing a How To Make Gravy Day party in their true comedic and bloody lovable style.

Get your pipes ready for a big day with the Willie the Boatman Community Choir belting out their favourite Christmas themed tunes and hold on to your Santa hats for appearances by some well-known local artists. There will be gravy (duh), there will be snags, there will be the big man in a red suit and there will be beer (duh x 2).

In the immortal words of the king himself…"Hello Dan, it's Joe here, I hope you're keeping well It's the 21st of December, and now they're ringing the last bells.... " Paul Kelly, Making Gravy. Learn the words HERE so you can get in the swing of the merriment.
