A true brewery village experience, with a bustling Canteen and the colourful Mystery Lane. A great opportunity to network in a casual setting and talk about what you've seen and heard at the conference. You can grab a fresh beer and a bite to eat, and watch the brewers racing around doing their thing. And we'll have Tripod on hand to provide some laughs and great music.

Since their earliest shows Tripod have made a habit of juggling comedy, music and narrative in endless exhilarating combinations.
They started out in the Melbourne pub scene, before becoming regulars of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and of national radio on Triple J. TV followed, including four seasons on Skithouse – the album of which, Middleborough Road, won them an ARIA – as well as a year as regulars on Sideshow on the ABC.
They have created numerous musicals including the magical Tripod Versus the Dragon and Perfect Tripod: Australian Songs with Eddie Perfect. Perfect Tripod also appeared on Network Ten’s Oxfam Gala, released a single with Gotye for Save Live Australian Music and sung with Missy Higgins on ABCTV’s Crackup.
Tripod continue to bring an insane level of craft in both comedy and music and combine them in a rich and satisfying way – an ability that has cemented them as a much loved cultural fixture in Australia.
