Get your first look at the GBW program with a taste test of over 100 beers.

Melbourne's annual celebration of all things hoppy is very nearly upon us. Well, sort of. This year's Good Beer Week isn't happening until May — but, as is tradition, they're tapping a few kegs early for the GWB Gala Showcase.

Returning to its founding site at The Atrium in Federation Square, the 2017 Gala Showcase will take place over two days: Thursday, March 16 and Friday, March 17. In addition to giving punters their first official look at the GWB program, the event will be attended by more than 30 local breweries and will feature masterclasses, brewer meet and greets, and plenty to eat and drink.

Entry to the Good Beer Week Gala Showcase costs $50 per person and includes a GWB branded tasting glass and 20x 60mL samples from more than 100 different beers on offer. You'll also get a $10 food voucher to use at vendors including Pambula Oyster Company and Fancy Hank's.
