Williamstown Beer & Cider Festival Returns For 2015

MELBOURNE | Fancy a combination of craft beer and good food this weekend? The Williamstown Beer & Cider Festival aka “Willy Beer Fest”might have what you’re after.

Locally born and bred, the festival began just a few years ago in 2013, but based on the beer list we’ve seen, the prospects look promising. Featuring some of our favourite beers from breweries like Kaiju, Two Birds Brewing, and of course Mornington Peninsula Brewing, it’s difficult not to be a bit intrigued by this little festival in one of Melbourne’s outer suburbs.

There are also food trucks (because what is a festival without food trucks), with Vietnamese from Nuoc Mama, sustainable street food from Cruiser Kitchen, and Texas wood-fired barbecue from Seven Fires. We’re not sure if these options will match all of your alcoholic tastes, but at the very least they could be a great place to start to set your appetite straight.

If you’re in Melbourne and looking for a beer by the seaside, this could be your ticket. If you’re not looking for beer, did we mention there’s cider too? Okay, if that wasn’t enough, what if we told you we had tickets to give away and all you had to do was add a comment below? So, what are you waiting for?

Chris is an editor, writer, and occasional novelist who in a former life published online magazines for a living while working out of obscure coffee shops. He has travelled extensively and has eaten and enjoyed exotic delights ranging from instant ‘just add water’ potatoes while on a Russian train to snails and Brie from a tiny Montreal kitchen. Chris is a great lover of the experiences around and associated with food and believes the culture of a venue, as quirky or strange as it might be, is just as important as the food it sells. He is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast dedicated to the lighter side of craft beer.
