A festival combining two important life sources: coffee and beer.

Melbourne is fueled by a mix of coffee and beer, so really it was only a matter of time before we got a festival combining the two. Coming to 3 Ravens Brewery in Thornbury on Sunday, April 2, On The Bend / On The Mend will see six local breweries team up with six beloved coffee roasters on six unique beers featuring coffee as a key ingredient.

Footscray's Hop Nation (beer), Small Batch (coffee), Preston's Tallboy & Moose (beer) and Brunswick's Wide Open Road (coffee) are just a few of the collaborators to jump on board. "Expect anything from a shot of cold brew into a glass of beer, boilermaker-style, through to some really out-there brews," says 3 Ravens brewery manager Nathan Liascos.

Your $60 ticket gets you entry plus all the coffee, beer and coffee-flavoured beer you can quaff. There'll also be workshops, live music and a raclette cheese bar where you can make sure you get your money's worth.
