Party brew­ing at Toob­o­rac Ho­tel

McIvor Times - - NEWS - By KENJI SATO

THE BEERS will flow at the Toob­o­rac Ho­tel’s sixth an­nual OkTOOBer­fest beer fes­ti­val on October 28. Each year the ho­tel hosts fam­i­lies, groups, and friends to cel­e­brate Ger­man tra­di­tion, craft beer and all things lo­cal.

Ho­tel owner Va­lerie Car­lin said the tra­di­tional Ok­to­ber­fest has been an im­por­tant part of Bavar­ian cul­ture since first be­ing held in 1810, and is a tra­di­tion that is cel­e­brated all over the world.

“There is some­thing for ev­ery­one here at the fes­ti­val,” she said.

“We of­fer a jump­ing cas­tle and fun-filled ac­tiv­i­ties for the kids, a wide range of craft beer for the adults and live mu­sic for ev­ery­one to en­joy.”

Head brewer Pete Martin is cel­e­brat­ing his third OkTOOBer­fest at the ho­tel and said he was look­ing for­ward to pour­ing the limited-edi­tion Ger­man in­spired brew.

“This beer is only of­fered once a year so make sure you come and have a stein or two”.

The venue will set up with the band on stage, brew­ery on show, out­door food fa­cil­i­ties and a chil­dren’s area.

Kick­ing off at 11am on OkTOOBer 28, tick­ets are avail­able on­line or at the gate.

All adult tick­ets in­clude a 0.5 or one litre stein filled with Toob­o­rac craft beer and chil­dren un­der five are free.

On the day, a to­tal of nine craft beers will be of­fered on tap be­tween their in­door and out­door bars with plenty in the fridge to take home.

Toob­o­rac will of­fer a wide range of award-win­ning brews such as our Shearer’s lager, Stone­ma­son’s pale ale, Gun­slingers Amer­i­can pale ale, Wood­cut­ter’s am­ber ale, Black­smith’s porter, sea­sonal de­lights and their new Mid-Strength Trav­eller.

Own­ers James and Va­lerie Car­lin, man­ager Vince Mar­tinico and all the staff in­vite the pub­lic to en­joy the warm cen­tral Vic­to­rian hospi­tal­ity, a taste of the coun­try and a touch of Ger­man fri­vol­ity.

House­hold rub­bish bins of­ten con­tain items that could have been re­cy­cled.

Our recycling bins can be con­tam­i­nated with non-re­cy­clable items that cause prob­lems dur­ing sort­ing.

Your kerb­side recycling bin can ac­cept many house­hold items such as alu­minium and steel cans, glass jars and bot­tles, milk and juice car­tons, foil trays and aerosols, rigid plas­tic con­tain­ers and bot­tles, card­board, news­pa­pers and magazines.

Items such as plas­tic bags, gar­den waste, food scraps, poly­styrene and foam, nap­pies, waxed card­board, sy­ringes and med­i­cal waste, soil and rocks, cloth­ing and tex­tiles, chem­i­cals, liq­uids and paint should not be put into your kerb­side recycling bin. Recycling tips:

It is im­por­tant that you don’t place items in plas­tic bags, as they will not be re­cy­cled.

Items don’t need to be sparkling clean when put in the recycling bin, just empty. Re­move solid food scraps and liq­uids.

To save room in your recycling bin en­sure boxes and bot­tles are flat­tened. Bin col­lec­tion tips:

Place bins out the night be­fore or by 6am on the day of col­lec­tion.

The bin lid must be closed for col­lec­tion. The truck’s me­chan­i­cal arm can­not lift over­filled bins. Ex­tra items placed on top or next to the bin will not be col­lected.

Place bins close to the kerb at least one me­tre apart and away from trees, cars and other bins. Bins should face the road with the han­dles and wheels to­wards the prop­erty.

Re­move bins promptly af­ter col­lec­tion. Each time we re­cy­cle right we re­duce the amount of waste be­ing sent to land­fill.

This saves en­ergy, re­duces the need to ex­tract raw ma­te­ri­als, saves limited nat­u­ral re­sources and helps com­mu­ni­ties and the econ­omy by en­cour­ag­ing in­no­va­tion and cre­at­ing jobs in the recycling in­dus­try.

Last year’s OkTOOBer­fest beer fes­ti­val was a big hit.
