The Roma Picnics Race Day is a mid-strength event from 6pm, supporting the Responsible Service of Alcohol.  CARLTON MID IS THE OFFICIAL BEER OF THE ROMA PICNIC RACES. (But we love Great Northern also)

We are trying to be brave this year and offer Spirit Pour to the General Public. Please general public, be patient with us, we are doing it because we know you don’t love the mid strength udls. Our spirit pour will also be mid-strength but we can reduce your sugar overload with ice and hand poured (lovingly) mixers. Drink tickets are still the currency at this meeting.
