Rub shoulders with archers and knights, falconers and Crusaders as you sample authentic medieval beverages and watch the bustle of medieval life pass you by.
The middle ages are a thirsty time. Toiling in the fields, hunting through the wilderness, jousting for fame and glory. Whether you’re a knight, a queen or a peasant, all are equal when it comes to thirst. Luckily, The Tilt and Counter Tavern accepts all kinds – as long as your coin is good.
The Tavern is located adjacent to the jousting field, so while you sip your cold brew, you’ll be able to hear the gallop and crunch of the knights vying for glory.
Feast from a beast on the spit, charge your glass to brave ancestors and watch the brew team work through the exact process of brewing from scratch, medieval-style. This is as close as you’ll ever come to drinking with your forefathers.
Medieval Brewers – Two Birds Brewing
Jayne Lewis and Danielle Allen are Two Birds Brewing; the driving force behind Australia’s first female owned brewing company that have been breaking boundaries since 2011. Located in Spotswood, an inner-western suburb of Melbourne, this award-winning brewery typifies everything that is good about the craft beer industry in Australia.
To commemorate our partnership, the team from Two Birds Brewing have created a special brew for the Medieval Faire – Birds of Prey, the Two Birds Marzen. It will be deep copper in colour, and characterized by a medium to full body, a malty flavour, and a clean, dry finish. Stop by the Tilt & Counter Tavern to drink your fill. The tavern will also feature Two Birds’ signature Pale Ale, Sunset, and Golden Ale and a special treat Lady Caroline’s Golden Ale in honour of our first female jouster.
The Tilt & Counter Tavern is open from 11am until 6pm on Saturday and Sunday.
