Every Thursday night this month eager Canberrans will be lining up at the foreshore local to get a taste of the new burger and beer match at Walt & Burley as part of its Burley Beer Month.
This month-long celebration is the perfect excuse to sip on a new boutique craft beer on tap that has been perfectly matched with the burger in your hand. For a touch of entertainment on the night you can watch the brewer tap the keg before the first beer is poured.
If you want to be surprised each Thursday night when you walk into Walt’s don’t read on… because we have the full line-up of beers and burgers to be matched for the rest of the month.
