Brews & Barbecue with Old Bust Head

Join us on Saturday, June 10 at 6 p.m. to kick off summer with a farm-to-table barbecue and craft beer from Old Bust Head Brewing Company.

The menu will include pork sausage sourced from Airlie’s own farm. Our 300-acre property has recently undergone a transformation back to its original heritage as a working farm with the reintroduction of Angus cattle, Berkshire pigs, chickens, and other livestock. Chef Hector Cruz and the culinary team will also be incorporating many other ingredients from our four-acre organic garden, which has been providing a steady supply of fresh produce and herbs for the property since 1998. 

Old Bust Head Brewing Company and Airlie have collaborated to pick six craft beers that are uniquely suited for summer and expertly paired with the barbecue menu offerings.

This event will be held at Airlie's Smokehouse, an ideal venue for a barbecue, with a large event tent, plenty of open, grassy space for lawn games, a lakeside fire pit and a Grill House outfitted with two Big Green Eggs.

Acoustic singer/songwriter Leon Rector will be performing original music and covers by The Beatles, The Doors, Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jim Croce, Jimi Hendrix, Jack Johnson, Mac DeMarco, Otis Redding and others.
