2018 is the year – we can feel it. And the only thing more important than watching the mighty Blues crush QLD is making sure you’ve got a great spot to watch the game (the opener might be in Melbourne, but Port Mac is where it’s at).
Here are our picks for where to watch State Of Origin.
The biggest game of the year needs a big screen – and Tacking Point Tavern is ahead of the pack with a massive screen streaming live action from 8pm. Grab some brews, bites (hello $15 black angus rump!) and get ready – the Maroons won’t know what hit them.
You don’t need to be on the field to score at Finnian’s – whether you’re eating Irish stew, burgers or nachos, you better wash it down with a Guinness (XXXX who?). We might just need the luck of the Irish.
You’ll be full well ahead of full time at The Macca, cheering on NSW with $10 schnitzels, and $4.50 beer and house wine throughout the night.
The beach front pub more iconic than Freddy Fittler himself is the place to take in the Origin action – alongside $15 parmies on Wednesdays you’ll be kicking #goals.
Settle in at Settlers on Origin night, with $4.50 Carlton Draught on tap from 7pm until the final whistle. Sink your teeth into $15 ribs and wings specials, loads of prizes and giveaways and the a courtesy bus running all night (solid move, guys).
The canetoads might be crafty, but you’re in for a craftier evening at Moorebeer Brewing Co. Grab a front row seat to the game live and loud on the big screen, tackle tasty $10 brisket and pulled pork burgers and $5 schooners of grommet all night long.
