Festival serves up fun and filling night
Dampier’s Hampton Oval lit up for a celebration of all things beef and beer at the inaugural Brew and the Moo last Saturday night. Kate Woodward, John Freimanis, Joseph Dunstan and Alicia Pike were among the sell-out crowd of 1200 people, who gathered to enjoy good food, drinks and acoustic music with friends in the relaxed festival atmosphere.
First-time Pilbara beef and beer festival Brew and the Moo on Saturday was a local success with sell-out ticket sales, an eclectic food and drinks menu, and an authentic festival atmosphere.
At the inaugural event by Wrapped Creations about 1200 people let their hair down while sampling interesting beef meals, boutique beers and acoustic tunes under strings of lights at Dampier’s Hampton Oval.
Chefs from Pilbara businesses the Ibis Styles, Steak Shack, Cherratta Lodge, Vita Cafe and Watis Bagus Burgers got inventive serving up a mouthwatering range of beef dishes, from a chipotle mac and cheese burger to a liege waffle with beef stew. Meanwhile the hand-picked beer list featured drinks mostly from Australian breweries, including Little Creatures, Mountain Goat and Kosciuszko.
Acoustic musicians Mikey Smith and Leah Grant entertained the crowd while the sun went down, before headline act FINGERS Mitchell Cullen took to the stage with an electrifying multi-instrumental performance that got people on their feet and dancing.
Several festival-goers gave the event rave reviews and said they were enjoying the chance to have a relaxed night out with friends, quality food and drink and a stunning location.
A mechanical bucking bull and ping pong tables added a quirky sense of fun to the night.
