Pint of Origin

Carwyn Cellars


This American election year, vote with your mouth!

Our celebration of the country that revolutionised the craft beer industry is back (for the SEVENTH! year) with a stooopid amount of beer from some of the best breweries from the U.S.A and MORE DEMOCRACY THAN EVER! 💪💥

We’ll be bringing back a few of our favourite breweries, beer & brewery launches, collab events, unicorn keg tappings, food pairing events and MORE!

🔥🍻 60+ kegs from 20 different USA breweries! 🍻🔥

Once again and back by popular demand, our Carwyn kitchen is taking a trip around the Land of the Free and serving an All American menu so delicious it will leave you as happy as a hound dog with two tails! Yee-haw! 🤠🌭

Being an election year in the land of freedom - we've added one exciting new element to make your visit(s) to Carwyn during this ten-day affair even more special! Introducing: The Beer Ballot ✅

The Beer Ballot.

How it works:

When you buy your first beer you will be given a ballot paper. Write the beer name down in one of the 5 slots on the ballot & rate it out of 5. Once all 5 slots are full of patriotic beer voting (and stamped by our staff, no voter fraud here folks), hand it back to our bar staff and choose one of the daily prizes from the bar!

There are multiple prizes to be redeemed! No contests involved just the power of BEER & LIBERTY!

Daily Prize - 1 Ballot Submitted

Fill all 5 slots in a beer ballot and redeem for a prize over the bar! (prizes inc bumper stickers, glassware, tote bags, stubby holders and bottle openers)

VP Pack - 5 Ballots over the week

Stop in a few times, fill in 5 Ballots (25 beers) and at then end of the week when the official votes are counted, you'll score the VP Pack (valued at $80 - includes 2 Forward Hops Rastal glasses and a Carwyn Cellars cap)

Presidential Pack - 10 Ballots over the week

If DEMOCRACY runs pure through your veins and you redeem 10 Ballots (50 beers), as well as being loaded up with daily prizes, you'll score the Presidential Pack. Valued at $250, this pack includes a Denver & Liely Beer Glass, a Carwyn Cap, a Carwyn Hoodie and a $100 Online Voucher.

Our staff will be vigilant of voting fraud! Ballots are individual (no combining) and don’t try to go too hard on a single day! This system is designed to be enjoyed over multiple sessions.
