Brunchers at the ready!

On Sunday, September 28, The Society BNE (in partnership with Ketel One) is combining coffee with springtime to bring you the Brewtiful Espresso Martini Brunch, the city’s most rejuvenating foodie event!

A daytime party that has the whole of Brisbane collectively buzzed (with caffeine and anticipation!), Brewtiful Brunch is the perfect excuse to gather your friends and spill the beans over yummy espresso martinis and a number of gourmet bites.

Like the time Australian Idol made us vote between Guy and Nollsy, The Society is offering two Brewtiful Brunch packages that have the office split for choice!

Up first is the Brunch Box package that boasts a complimentary Ketel One espresso martini on arrival and a selection of irresistible treats. Individually packed and ready to enjoy, each brunch box includes a New York-style bagel stuffed with Tasmanian salmon and dill-spiced Philly, a picnic-perfect sandwich, a Portuguese egg tartlet, fresh strawberries, layered opera cake, and more!

As for those who prefer to brunch on cloud nine, opt for the VIP Rooftop Party instead. Elevated to the next level, this sky-high extravaganza expands the brunch box into a whole canapé selection and cheese station, providing delectable bites that pair perfectly with a complimentary espresso martini and bottomless three-hour beverage package.

Both packages grant you access to a number of brewtiful pop-ups and live entertainment in Eagle Farm Racecourse’s Stradbroke Plaza; think coffee-inspired interactive experiences and photo opportunities, market stalls, pop-up bars and lawn games from 10:30am to 4:30pm.

When it comes to bars, the Stradbroke Plaza is all stacked up with a number of sip-happy experiences! Make a beeline first to Ketel One’s Espresso Yourself! Bar, to enjoy a variety of espresso martinis with a twist.

Coffee-wise, the Plaza will also be stocked with everything from affogatos and Irish coffees to more adventurous eats including a coffee-smoked brisket burger, cinnamon and coffee waffles, and coffee custard cannoli.

Next on our brewtiful bucket list, you ask? Also popping up on the day will be ceramic painting, makeup sessions, a florist’s cart, a flower crown making workshop hosted by Billy J Boutique, a Design Your Own Iceblock station, and five cocktail stalls selling Pimms, Chandon sparkling, Smirnoff spritz, and more!

Alongside the all-day DJ mixing discs, the Brewtiful brunch’s event host will also be taking the stage to run giveaways and spontaneous competitions you and your buddies are sure to love!

While the Brewtiful Espresso Martini Brunch is a non-racing event, that won’t stop us from strapping in, dressing up, and catching an Uber to Eagle Farm Racecourse this September 28! Head to the website to book your brunch tix today.
