BentSpoke and Hopscotch ‘the Frenzy’ Yes!Fest beer

the-frenzy-new-beer-yesfestBentSpoke Brewing Co and Canberra’s Hopscotchvenue have partnered with Yes!Fest to create a ‘very Braddon’ brew to mark the one year anniversary of the vote for marriage equality.

BentSpoke co-owner and brewer Tracy Margrain said the specially brewed beer will be featured during the Lonsdale Street festivities in Canberra tomorrow.

Margrain described the raspberry wheat beer as refreshing and tart, with an extra fruity kick delivered by an infusion of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries in the Hopinator.

“We chose the Frenzy as the Yes!Fest beer because it challenges traditional definitions of beer and starts conversations. We thought this aligned really well with the heart of the Yes!Fest celebration,” Margrain said.

Hopscotch co-owner Nick Parkinson said she was proud that Hopscotch played such a central role in Canberra’s celebration of the yes vote in 2017.
