Drinking a beverage and watching a band ranks among life's simplest pleasures. Enjoying one of hundreds of craft beers and ciders from more than 60 independent brewers and cideries, while being entertained by The Smith Street Band, The Jungle Giants 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 2018 iteration over the weekend of Friday, September 21 and Saturday, September 22. Well, that and showcasing the best in brews and music, plus throwing in some delicious food and fun entertainment options. And, like last year, the tasting festival is taking over the Brisbane Showgrounds.
To line the stomach, local food-slinging folks will also do their bit — and 2017's event also featured a ginger beer bar and an espresso martini bar, so cross your fingers that they'll make a return. After all that eating and drinking — including of collaborative beverages and exclusive brews made just for Beer InCider — you can then work it all with a bout of ping pong or handball. Yes, this truly is the ultimate in drinks-focused festivals.
And if that's not enough, here's the full music lineup:
