Country Kin Kin hosts Oktoberfest

HOME brewing aficionados Scott Cairns and Pete Mandack, aka Kin Kin Brew Masons, are bringing live music, food and beer to Main St in Kin Kin this month.

When Scott bought Kin Kin's historic Freemasons lodge, the duo knew what had to be done, joining forces to take their at-home hobby to a new level, and started brewing beer from grain.

Three years on, The Beer Masons host brewing courses and it's a huge hit.

Now they invite locals and visitors to Kin Kin for Oktoberfest ... in September.

Event spokeswoman Anita Poteri says this is the third year Scott and Pete have hosted the festival, but previously it was a private party.

"Because of the overwhelming amount of interest from the public, they have decided to open it to the public," she says.

To be held at the Black Ant Gourmet, otherwise known as the Kin Kin General Store, the event will bring German food, craft beer and live music from the Honey and Knives to the main street of Kin Kin.

Festivities start at 2pm on September 24 and continue until 10pm.

Pre-purchased tickets cost $50, which includes food and first beer fill, and are available from Kin Kin General Store, or by emailing Scott and Pete at
