The good news for locals is that the Yarra Hotel on Johnston St, Abbotsford has just been revived and reopened. A small group of local identities are behind it including Guy from the Napeir Hotel, Glen from the Union and Newry and also Mick Thomas (of Weddings Parties Anything). So already you get a feel for this place. Our Hightail is on tap and in a few weeks time there’ll be a Good Beer Week event there. Today we have Mick Thomas in here brewing a one-off beer and Henry Wagons is due in a couple hours time to do the same. They will launch these brews on Sunday 19 May from 3pm at the Yarra. Tickets for this event are on sale now at  It promises to be a fun afternoon.
