Australia’s newest events and conference venue, CENTREPIECE at Melbourne Park, has announced exclusive supplier contracts with Moon Dog Craft Brewery and CAPI, two of Victoria’s leading beverage brands, highlighting Victoria’s rich refreshment culture.
“With both premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic options, we wanted to make sure there is something for everyone, delivering an exceptional experience all while continuing to spotlight our Victoria suppliers,” said CENTREPIECE Sales Manager Laura Reddaway.
“CAPI and Moon Dog are two of Melbourne’s most innovative and exciting beverage companies, and we cannot wait to serve their drinks to our guests.” Driven by the desire to deliver beverages made ‘by’ Australia, CAPI is dedicated to being 100% natural.
From what began as a business championing the quality mineral water that Australia has to offer, CAPI has expanded their portfolio to more than 20 mixers, sodas and mineral waters that challenge a world of mass production and mediocrity. ‘As a brand that heroes sustainability and a Victoria-first focus, we are super keen to be partnering with a venue like CENTREPIECE that aligns so holistically with our values,” said CAPI Director of Brand and Innovation, Thurman Wise.
“Keeping things local has always been important to us at CAPI, with everything from our product and packaging design and bottles, to the creation of our drinks taking place on Australian soil. We’re so excited to be working with a space that understands and appreciates this approach as much as we do.” Pioneering the popularity of independent Australian brewing, Moon Dog Craft Brewery has been curating a collection of beers, ciders and recently seltzers for nearly a decade.
Born in a small shed and brewed in a combination of welded dairy tanks, Moon Dog has led the charge on the craft brewing craze. CENTREPIECE is one of the first event spaces of its size to offer canned beverages to guests, highlighting the uniqueness of Moon Dog’s products, and creating an authentic Melbourne experience at the venue. “For a business born out of a shed to be taking centre stage at a space like CENTREPIECE brings to life that local focus and Victoria first mentality that we value so much,” said Gareth Edie, National Key Accounts Manager at Moon Dog Brewing.
“In the beer world, local is everything. Consumers have begun to value where their food and beverages come from, so we are excited to be able to bring our beverages to deliver a quality, local experience at such an exciting new events space.”
