One of the most popular and enduring beer festivals in New South Wales is the one that happens in a car park outside a bottleshop near the edge of Lake Macquarie.
The Warners at the Bay festival is an annual sell out, with those who've been in previous years invariably having had such a good time they come back time and again. And this year the organisers have promised to please the masses with the biggest festival yet, featuring more than 35 local breweries, eight Hunter Valley wineries and half a dozen cider producers.
There'll be plenty of food on offer – including locals Doughheads Doughnuts for the first time – and live music all day.
Tickets tend to sell out well in advance so get yours early here.
