Before Mad March started there were already plenty of events running throughout summer and the Ignite Unley series continued to bring life to the community with their Craft Beer & Cider event. Held at the Soldier’s Memorial Gardens on Unley Road next to the shopping centre, this event brought together some SA brewed beers and ciders along with food, marketstalls, games and live music.
The event started at 4pm and we got there about 6pm. It was a really relaxed atmosphere, great for chilling out with friends and family. Of course the alcohol area was cordoned off with tables and chairs for you to hang out there instead. There were toys and tunnels set up for children as well as badminton and cricket equipment for anyone to have a go. I don’t drink alcohol but Mr. Foodie had himself a nice brew from Gulf Brewery – the Dunkel Sturm which was a lager with rich malt sweetness, caramel, toast and nuttiness. He definitely enjoyed it. Prancing Pony, Birbeck’s and Barossa Valley Brewing were also there.

|Gan Taiwaneese Fried Chicken|
Everytime we go back to Malaysia Mr. Foodie craves for some Taiwanese Fried Chicken so this food truck was right up his alley. Delicious golden brown well seasoned Taiwanese Fried Chicken Nuggets! Juicy inside, crispy outside. Gan Taiwanese Chicken Nuggets also sell fried sweet potato chips.

After the chicken we shared a Deluxe Waffle Dessert from Mr Macaron’s Cafe. Belgian Waffle with strawberries, banana and ice cream always goes down a treat on a lovely summer’s evening.

There were also a few market stalls selling fashion items and home made stuff which was worth a gander.
