moo party at the gnh

friday 18th may

After nearly burning down the Great Northern at last year's Good Beer Week with Mona's Heavy Metal Kitchen and Wall of Fire, Moo Brew is coming back for a second go.

Join the Moo Crew for a feast in their favourite beer garden, with a flaming cooking apparatus, local DJs, and recycling at its best with an obscure tinnie sculpture to contribute your empties. It’s going to be some party. Bring your mates.
