BOOK IN ~ MFWF ‘LOCAL YIELD’: FERMENTATION, FLORA AND FIRE AT BODRIGGY
A graduate of some of Melbourne's most polished kitchens, (@john.dc) Johny Dominguez has been the head of our restaurant for 4 years now, shaking up the city's preconceptions about Latin American food.
This Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, join us straight from the farm to the Bodriggy Brewhouse, for a sustainably sourced feed and froth in Bodriggy’s mechanic shop-turned-brewpub.
Using simple techniques to showcase local produce, head chef Johnny and his kitchen team will be celebrating some of our finest native ingredients in signature Latin American dishes.
The herbs and flora will be sourced from places and producers like Collingwood Children’s Farm and Outback Chef Wild Food Farm, and, in some cases, self-foraged by the chefs, with the pork coming from from Ethical Swine Victoria. There’ll also be an exclusive Bodriggy brew, infused with select local plants, brewed especially for the occasion.
Pick from three sitting times on March 30. Tickets are $91 per person and include a banquet menu and live music. Option to add on matched drinks is available or head to the bar on the night. Spots are limited. Head to the link above to book in.

The Experience brings together future legendary musicians heading into the prime of their careers.
Inspired by his father's words to share culture as a way to bring encouragement following the challenges of 2020, ZII, who is also a talented rapper/poet and founder, set out to write music that would bring life to a world that journeyed through a global pandemic and a racial reckoning, to say the least. What followed was a series of instrumental songs as he could not find words to describe the world around him. Upon reflection he decided to form a band that would bring these instrumentals to life and carries out a message of hope through Spiritual and Afro-Jazz, thus giving birth to The Experience.

DARK AND DANK ~ AUGUST 5-7
Bodriggy Brewpub presents LUNAVERSE this August. An entire weekend dedicated to the dissolving the lines between sound, space, craft and taste.
The moon to summer's Electric KoolAid Festival , Lunaverse looks to illuminate dark corners and cast new shadows with exceptional creative talent in both music and brew.
Over three days, the Bodriggy Brewpub will swell with a three day music programme and exclusive tap list and menu. Try exceptional swill, vote for your favourite via our interactive live app, catch an interstellar lineup and be present in a curated moment in time and space.
Savour exceptional swill from over 10 breweries and share your preferences in the Lunaverse app among fellow Lunaverians. Immerse yourself in the reverie of 20+ live artist performances. Then re-emerge for a brief interlude or immediately into another aural sensation. Meet you for Totopos with guac. And another froff.
The concept is simple. Bandleader Lachlan Mitchell (Laneous, Vulture St Tape Gang, Harry James Angus, Jazz Party) directs an ever-changing line-up of musicians through an improvised jam with just a whiteboard and a pen, shifting and contorting the foundation of each song in real time with the unpredictable brilliance of a mad scientist.
Featuring a rotating cast of familiar names from stalwart projects such as Hiatus Kaiyote, Barney Mcall and Sex On Toast, Uncomfortable Science have developed a cult status in the Melbourne music scene, easily understood through witnessing the band in full flight.
