Keg Jump at Burleigh Brewing Co
In its third year, the renowned Burleigh Brewing Keg Jump event is back, bigger and better, taking over Burleigh Brewing Taphouse on Friday June 24 for a celebration craft beer and skateboarding. Burleigh Keg Jump is set to host street skateboarders from around the country who are recognised by the industry as elite level athletes, who will compete for a massive prize pool valued at $9,000.
The task is simple – the winning skateboarder must clear and land over the highest number of Burleigh beer kegs on the night to score the renowned Burleigh Golden Growler Trophy!
This year’s event will see the return of past winners and local skateboarding hero’s Nixen Osborne and Dani Campbell as well as 2019 winner, all the way from Melbourne, Sam Atkins. All three winners have jumped a total of 11 Burleigh kegs, a distance approximately four metres long – can the record be broken this year?!
Social media sensation and local legend, Blake Melbourne will keep the crowd of hundreds entertained as the event MC, while the best trick judging panel consists of four nationally recognised skateboarding figures – Sean Holland, Trent Fahey, Leigh Bolton and Izy Mutu. There will be plenty of live music, Burleigh Eats food and world class Burleigh craft beer. For those wanting to keep the night going, there’s also an afterparty.
Punters can expect appearances from Skater of the Year winner, Robert Pace (Sydney) and pro skateboarders, Chima Ferguson (Sydney), Aimee Massie (Sydney) and Dennis Durrant (Brisbane).
Tickets to the Burleigh Keg Jump event are $20 and include a Burleigh Brewing craft beer on arrival. This event is strictly 18+.
