At the 2014 Crown Golden Ale Caulfield Cup last Saturday, Crown Golden Ale played host to 350 special guests in a custom built indoor/outdoor facility at the Caulfield racecourse.
The exclusive facility featured expansive decking overlooking the track and a 20m long Crown Golden Ale Gold bar. Guests were treated to newest addition to the Crown family, the Crown Golden Ale and were also treated to delicious delicacies from the custom designed menu of 17 dishes, including two dishes by renowned Australian chef Tobie Puttock.
These dishes were created by Tobie to specifically match the flavours of Crown Golden Ale. Tobie says of his first dish, “the floral, citrus and spicy scents of Crown Golden Ale pairs beautifully with this light salmon and grain salad. There are direct flavour matches drawing on the sweet, delicate and smoky flavours of this dish”. Puttock says the second signature dish is “the finest quality lamb sourced from King Island with an almond crumb casing bringing an earthiness and depth of flavour pairing beautifully with the slight bitterness of this beer”.
Special guests of the facility included Vince Colosimo and Jordan & Zac Stenmark; some of Australia’s finest sports people including Olympian’s James Magnussen, Alex ‘Chumpy’ Pullin and Michael Klim , a range of Australia’s finest racing identities including Peter Moody and David Hayes.
Also on hand throughout the day were a lineup of some of Australia’s finest DJ’s including Havana Brown, Paris Wells, Dean Cherny and The Faders.
As the proud sponsor of the Crown Golden Ale Caulfield Cup Carnival, the Crown Golden Ale Caulfield Cup was under guard in the Crown Golden Ale facility where guests had the unique opportunity to hold and be photographed with the 2014 Cup while celebrating with the winning owners, and the trainer and jockey in the facility immediately after the race.
The Crown Golden Ale Caulfield Cup Carnival was an exciting start to Spring, with fashionistas and punters enjoying the festivities over the carnival weeks. It gave us a taste of what’s to come for the rest of the Spring racing carnival.
