It’s the 10th anniversary edition, and we’re fired up for an epic time. Who would’ve thought that when launching in May 2011, it would grow to be the legendary week-long party it is today?
Get your mates together and let’s do this!
Hold onto your hats, beer lovers! This year’s taplist is epic. We’re keeping tight lipped until closer to the day but you can get around our 5 Festival beers all the way through from the Gala: Bridge Road Brewers, Boatrocker Brewers and Distillers, Stomping Ground Brewing Co, Hop Nation and Modus Operandi.
Stay tuned for the full tap list.
