Community set to brew a world record for charity

Local beer lovers will be gathering together this Sunday as a potential world record is set to be brewed in Brunswick, Melbourne.

The Thunder Road Brewing Company will be holding its third community day this Sunday, May 4 and this time will have a charity brew to raise money for the Australian Cancer Research ­Foundation.

Anyone who wants to try their hand as a brewer, members of the community and all-round beer lovers can come along on the day and, for a $10 donation, help with tasks including grinding the malt, adding hops and temperature control.

“In four weeks, they will be able to come back and they will be given a bottle of what they have brewed,” Chief executive Philip Withers said.

The day – at the company’s Barkly St brewery – will also include face-painting and entertainment for the whole family..

The Thunder Road Brewing Company hopes to break the world record for the most people to brew a beer.
