Expect top drops from 48 brewers large and small, including the likes of Coastal Brewing, Sydney Brewery, Mountain Goat, Bucketty’s, Thirsty Devil, One Drop and heaps more.

As ever, there will be fresh food for all tastes – BBQ meat, nachos, burgers, fish & chips and wraps, live entertainment from local bands The Burley Griffin and Plump Band, charity raffles, and family-friendly activities including giant Jenga, cornhole, face-painting and a jumping castle.

The fun continues after the festival finishes, with a shuttle service the Skyfire fireworks at Lake Burley Griffin.
