A Night with Max Allen

Join award-winning writer and journalist Max Allen at Neighbourhood Wine

"Intoxicating: Ten Drinks That Made Australia" Max Allen’s brilliant new book about Australia's complex relationship with alcohol, comes to life in this very special event.

Max will host the evening, sharing stories from the book about drinks that shaped the nation. You’ll sip your way through an inspired selection of drinks including Shipwreck Champagne, a big cold beer, Max’s nostalgic gateway wine and an Australian Negroni, all matched with retro snacks by chef Almay Jordaan.

As author Bruce Pascoe wrote, "Max sucks you into this book by promising lots of grog stories but what he does, the sly dog, is teach you about your country."
