Donut and Beer Festival (Invited)

Sunday, April 09, 2017 Sharon Halim 1 Comments

Donut and Beer Festival a concept that has been famous from New York to LA and now in Melbourne. We are so ready for it! The entry is based on a donation of gold coin and will be donated to a charitable cause, Eat Up. The location is reachable by tram St Kilda Interchange 3/3a, 5, 6, 63, 64, 67 stop 26 Moubray St and 5 minutes walk from Prahran Station. Street parking also available but since it's labour day weekend it was challenging.

I was invited to Zomato VIP Launch Party right before the door officially open for public at 2pm. We were given 1 hour from 1pm-2pm to take a photo and have a taste of some of the donut and beer goodies. The area was full of donuts from Cupcake CentralNieuw AmsterdamDip'd and Ahhh Donuts!, also beer from Brooklyn Brewery, Two Birds Brewing and The Proud Peacock.

One of the highlights of the event was the sushi donut by Cocomama's, the line was long even before they open. It was a creative innovation, never before seen in Melbourne and it's the only savoury donut that's not made from dough.

The festival it self was packed way before 2pm and by 1.50pm the line in front of the venue started stacking up. Clearly, Melbournian was very excited for this event. I'm sure they will be back soon with a bigger, better and much more vendor next time.
