This Saturday 29th February, fifty of the country’s most exciting established and upcoming craft brewers are ready to inject some serious hops into your leap-day. You can sample the best beers on offer from the likes of St Andrews BeachMoon Dog Brewing, and many more of Victoria’s best bars and brewers from 1-8PM, with one-on-one market stall interactions with experts offering an experience you just can’t get at your regular Saturday afternoon sessions.

But it’s not just about the beer. If a G&T or chardonnay is more up your alley, you can take your pick from a great range of acclaimed winemakers, distillers and cider makers offering boutique cocktails and spirits to quench your thirst.

Whatever your poison, BeerFest is also ready to tempt you with some delicious food from gourmet producers. With a sustainable focus on local produce that caters for vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free diets, there’ll be a huge range of eats for everyone.

You can even learn more about what you’re guzzling from the professionals themselves: masterclasses with industry leaders from Cicerone and Bright Brewing Co. include “Perfect Match: Food and Beer Pairing”, so you can pair your brew with your burger for the best possible foodie experience. Much classier than pizza and a slab of VB in your mate’s backyard, that’s for sure.

Fret not, there’s also a bumper entertainment line-up to keep you dancing and giggling all arvo long. ARIA award-winning Aussie band Art vs Science is headlining, with guaranteed bops like ‘Parlez Vous Français?’ promising to really throw it back to the glory days of 2009. They’ve even designed their bespoke ‘Art vs Science vs Beer’ ale that’s exclusive to BeerFest events, so you can dance to Art vs Science, while drinking Art vs Science. Just imagine how cool you’ll feel when you’re whipping that story out at your next party.
