We'll start this new events wrap out west, where there are laughs aplenty to be had on this and each subsequent Friday for the rest of April at the Dutch Trading Co as they pour on the Brewed Laughter.
Don't like laughing? Perhaps get along to the Dog Eat Dog event at the DTC instead, where they're inviting you to clone your best BrewDog recipe and put it up for judging against the original – with a BrewDog brewer on hand – to see if you can topple the top dog.
If you'd rather brewers did all the work, try boarding a paddle steamer with WA legends Feral and Nail for a three hour beer-fuelled cruise of the Swan River.
Back east, in Melbourne, there's red hot news at The Alehouse Project which is celebrating red beers with 24 of them currently on tap at the Brunswick bar (if you’re a red headed Crafty Cabal member there’s a free pint waiting for you at the bar too). For those not able to wait the few weeks until the start of Good Beer Week 2016, you can get a teaser for what Huxtaburger and Wolf Of The Willows have in store for their Dances With Wolves dinner.
In other festival news, registrations for Sydney Craft Beer Week 2016 are now open while tickets for The Oak Barrel's sixth Beer & Cider Fair are now on sale (this one tends to sell out months in advance so be in quick).
As of last night, you could pick up the Cross Pallet Nation collaboration from Nomad, Dogfish Head and Birra Del Borgo at the Royal Albert Hotel, where they're also preparing to turn their taps over to Newstead. Near neighbours the Dove & Olive will be sending their Craft Beer Fight Club to Randwick for the first time, with Stone & Wood and Feral going toe to toe.
Over at The Union Hotel in Newtown they've lined up a host of big beers for an evening of bold flavours, the Local Taphouse in Darlinghurst celebrates the 500th anniversary of the Reinheitsgebot and, in a rather less pure but probably more tasty move, invites Matt Houghton of Boatrocker to share some of his beers.
In the name of trans-Tasman comradeship, The Quarryman's Hotel is splitting its taps on ANZAC Day with six beers from Akasha and a further six from Panhead and, before the month is out, Modus Operandi will have launch its canned beer with a brewery session and a Willy Wonka-esque golden ticket search.
Down in South Australia it's all action, starting at The Wheaty. First up the ladies will be teaming up with the Hobart Brewing Co. on a Tasmanian gose as part of a wider showcase while a selection of wet hop beers will hit the font within the next two weeks. Then there's the small matter of Good Beer Wheaty 2016.
Just before that kicks off, you'll be able to head along to Big Shed for a brew day with Doctor's Orders ahead of the second coming of Dr ShedLove. And tonight there's a Deschutes Tap Takeover at the Earl of Leicester. And lastly but not leastly in tap takeover news, Brisbane's Archive will soon be hosting a series of single hop brews.
