#PoO23 Events

As well as their weeklong tap showcases, Miss Moses is hosting the following events

May 12, 2023
Akasha Barrel Room Exclusive Tasting

We’re kicking off the Pint of Origin week with a very special chance to try the Akasha Barrel Room beers!

Founded in 2015 in Sydney's Five Dock, Akasha has helped spearhead Australia's blossoming love affair with high quality, hop forward beer, rapidly becoming one of the most celebrated and successful independent breweries in the country.

Despite their love for big hoppy IPA's, Barrel-Aged beers have always been a massive passion for the team at Akasha. In November last year, the team made the decision to expand their hospitality offering to Leichhardt, opening the Barrel Room by Akasha, a unique hospitality offering that showcases their Barrel-Aged beers and passion for the very best in premium small batch craft brewing. Brewed with pride, passion and precision, their evolving range of barrel aged beers represents the finest, most refined flavours that premium craft brewing can offer. Each beer is a genuine small batch product, brewed in strictly limited quantities and aged in various types of barrels, from old Pedro Ximénez to Jack Daniels barrels, for added depth and complexity on the palate.

Ordinarily, these beers are only available strictly at The Barrel Room in Leichhardt. But for one night only, you'll have the chance to try them without traveling to Sydney.

Join Dave from Akasha at as he pours a selection of Barrel Aged beers from a very limited amount of bottles we got our hands on. We'll also have a selection of Akasha favourites on tap.

Barrel Room beers being poured (from 4pm):

  • PX Barrel Aged Triple Amber Ale, 10.5% ABV

  • Jack Daniel's Barrel Aged Belgian Quadruple, 10.5% ABV

  • Whiskey Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, 10.2% ABV

Beers on tap (from 12pm)

  • Super Chill Pacific Ale, 4.2% ABV

  • Canada Bay XPA, 4.2% ABV

  • Hopsmith IPA, 6.8% ABV

There are no tickets for this event, but Dave will be pouring The Barrel Room beers in the front bar from 4pm until our limited stock runs out. Be sure to book a table!

White Bay Beer Co. Lager Showcase

Their core-range Lager took out Champion Beer at the 2022 Independent Beer Awards (The Indies). That means it was judged the best beer out of a whopping 1,458 beers entered! Along with the release of the hugely popular Gantry Crane Czech Pils, the award has played a huge role in helping lager as a style finally find its place in the craft beer world. White Bay produce quality hoppy beers too, but the brewers are really focusing the passion on lager at the moment. So we’re really excited to bring you a tap showcase of 5 different White Bay lagers on Saturday afternoon including some that won’t be seen in Melbourne outside of this event.

Beers on tap from 12pm until sold out:

  • Lager, 4.7%

Slow Lane Melbourne Birthday Party

Slow Lane makes beer a little differently to most. They have a passion for European beer styles that benefit from Old World methods. They’re not averse to using modern techniques, or experimenting with different yeasts. But where traditional methods produce better flavours or a unique effect, they’ll stand firm. Even if they’re more labour intensive. Even if they take longer. Their small size makes it possible for them to use these more labour and time intensive methods that most modern breweries have abandoned in favour of more efficient industrialised processes. They naturally carbonate their beers through can and keg conditioning. Many of their beers are open fermented leading to healthier yeast and more fermentation character. Some of their beers are also fermented with mixed cultures of wild yeast and bacteria and aged in oak barrels.

The brewery celebrated its 3rd birthday in Sydney last week and now the Slow Lane crew are coming to Melbourne to pour 3 of their very special birthday release beers on tap. So get down to Miss Moses Bar & Bottle-O to say happy birthday to Slow Lane founder Alex Jarman and sample some of the very best from Botany!

Beers pouring on tap from 12pm Alex from Slow Lane will be at the bar from 5pm

Beers on tap:

  • To the Fruit Farm BA Farmhouse Ale w/ Peaches & Nectarines, 6.5% ABV

  • Ton of Bricks Rum BA Imperial Stout, 11.5% ABV

  • Hop Detective Hazy IPA, 6.5% ABV

The Social Brewers Vic Launch Party

Perhaps, but a growing stack of awards and a top 50 debit entry into the Hottest 100 last year tells us that their small footprint might be about to grow!

Beers on tap from 12pm until sold out:

  • Forest Road IPA, 5.8% ABV

  • Broken Bat Dark Mild, 3.3% ABV
