The Crafty Pint's annual celebration of the wide world of beer, Pint of Origin, returns to Melbourne from May 10 to 19 next year. If you'd like your venue to be involved, we're currently taking expressions of interest.
Venue staff can register below. There's no commitment or fees at this stage – with limited spots available, we'll let applicants know whether they've been successful in early November.
And, if you're a beer lover with a favourite bar or pub you think should be involved, feel free to give the team there a nudge too.
We hope to have the host venue lineup locked in next month ahead of the summer rush, even though it won't be unveiled to the public until early 2024.
After two ripper years following the festival's rebrand and the launch of digital Pint of Origin Passports – including appearances on Sunrise on 7, Channel 10 and ABC in the lead-up to the 2023 event – we're ready to take things to another level in 2024, bursting with big ideas and eager to build on the success of the past 11 years.
If you're reading this and wondering: "What are you talking about?" there's this article from a few years back documenting its origins and history, as well as this one starring attendees on what they love about Pint of Origin. You can check out the website from the 2023 festival here too.
For your venue to be considered as a host venue, please complete the form below before October 31, 2023. If you're new to the concept, feel free to drop us a line.
