MELBOURNE | Brewer’s Feast is Melbourne’s newest craft beer festival, and offers some of Victoria’s best beer, combined with some of the state’s finest food, with everything from the hops for the beer to the meat for the brisket sourced from Victorian farmers and businesses.
“We think Victoria produces some of the best produce found anywhere”, said festival co-organiser and co-founder Tyson McGeoch when we spoke to him. “We really wanted to show what great work comes out of the state in every part of the Brewers Feast festival.”
Featuring beers from acclaimed brewers such as Cavalier Brewing, Mornington Peninsula Brewery, and newcomers Stomping Ground, and food from The Local Taphouse, Al Forno Pizza, and dishes especially matched for the festival by Le Catering & Co, Brewer’s Feast is a dream for foodies and beer lovers alike. The festival also offers both cider and alcoholic ice tea for non-beer drinkers; live music from chart topping and Triple J artists such as Woodlock, The Hunter Express, Lorikeet, and The Party in a program especially curated for the festival; and beer education sessions covering topics ranging from pairing with food to starting your own brewery.
Brewers Feast runs Friday 28 October 6-11pm, and Saturday 29 October 12-9pm, at Abbotsford Convent. For further information, visit www.brewersfeast.com.au
