Pilbara News - - Front Page - Pic­ture: Ali­cia Per­era

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.
