Drinking a beverage and watching a band ranks among life's simplest pleasures. Enjoying one of 300 craft beers and ciders from 53 independent brewers and cideries, while being entertained by Ball Park Music, City Calm Down and more — now that's how you take something great and make it even better.
Ensuring a good time is had by all is part of the aim of the Beer InCider Experience in its 2017 iteration over September 22 and 23. Well, that and showcasing the best in brews and music, plus throwing in some delicious food and fun entertainment options. And, this year, the tasting festival has moved to new surroundings at Brisbane Showgrounds.
To line the stomach, 18 ten local food-slinging folks such as Mac From Way Back, This Little Piggie, Gnocchi Gnocchi Brothers and I Heart Brownies will do their bit, with everything from burgers to bratwurst and ribs to doughnuts also on offer. Those looking for something a bit different might want to head to the ginger beer bar or espresso martini bar, or relax under the garden bar's towering fig trees. Then, work off all that sipping and eating with a bout of Berlin-style ping pong or putt putt, or go for it with giant Connect Four. Yes, this truly is the ultimate in drinks-focused festivals.
