Brewers announce Abbey Collabby charity event

Abbey Collabby is one of the nation’s longest collaborations between breweries, with the brewing teams at Matilda Bay, Mountain Goat and Moon Dog putting down the battle axes and coming together in the name of a great cause.

On Wednesday May 25th at 6pm the breweries will launch their exclusive, limited release beer at Collingwood Children’s Farm, with all the proceeds from the night going to supporting the farm.

It promises to be a night of great music, great beer, great food and all supporting a local not-for-profit organisation which aims to support people in the Victorian community who are experiencing adversity.


This event is going ahead, despite the fact that Good Beer Week in Melbourne is cancelled. It starts at 6pm at the Collingwood Children’s Farm and will go until 11pm.

The party will be held in the beautiful barn, which is both under cover and heated.

A great line up of local Melbourne acts with the talented DJ Adriana, Jess Ribeiro and Steel Wheels. Food will be provided by the legendary Blue Bonnet BBQ, with vegetarian and vegan options on the night.

The collaboration brew is a 6.6% ABV Hazy Oat IPA. The beer has been double dry hopped with a punchy combo of Australian hops and deftly balanced with an oat and malt blend.

Big, juicy and hazy, with sweet ripe yellow fruit and crisp pine alongside a characteristic IPA bitterness.

James Aris from Matilda Bay says, “We are really excited to be bringing this Abbey Collabby event back to its heart and soul – which is about raising money for a great contributor to the North Melbourne community in Collingwood Children’s Farm.”

Tickets are available on Eventbrite via this link and are donation based.
