MELBOURNE | Just when you started to forget how the caramel notes of an amber beer perfectly compliment the rich, gooey filling of a custard donut, Melbourne’s Donut & Beer Fest returns with gusto for a second round. Tailored to the winter season, the festival will include more donuts than your yearning heart can handle, paired with craft beers, cocktails, and hot apple cider. Local Melbourne vendors will be providing all the food. As if the event couldn’t get more holey, there will also be live music, donut eating competitions, and a miniature donut museum. Oh sweet, sweet Jesus.

Along with satisfying your sweet tooth, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to FareShare. The food rescue charity cooks 5,000 free meals a day using food that would otherwise be wasted. These dishes are prepared and distributed by volunteers out of Australia’s largest charity kitchen.

Kooinda Brewery will be providing one of the special beers to pair with the treats. Since donuts saturate the palate with sugar, they’ve created a brew with caramel and toffee notes to perfectly compliment the sweetness. You can also expect an Aperol cocktail with pomegranate liquor, grapefruit, lemon, and egg white with a rose petal garnish, among others. Need I say more?

Support local. Eat donuts. It’s that easy.
