Say cheers to beers by the river this spring, all thanks to Brisbane's Howard Smith Wharves precinct. You can stop by the site's resident brewery, Felons, any time you like, of course — but this two-day event will bring a whole heap of booze-makers together, pour plenty of beer and cider, and combine sitting on the grass, soaking in the sunshine and taking in the watery view.
Running from 1–8pm on both Saturday, October 19 and Sunday, October 20, Beers on the Lawn aims to become an annual attraction — because, if there's one thing that Brissie can't get enough of, it's excuses to sink cold ones. For the inaugural event, the frothies will be flowing from Felons, Range, Helios, Slipstream and Aether, as well as Semi-Pro, Brouhaha, Ballistic and Soapbox.
In addition to beers and then more beers, attendees will be able to tuck into burgers — of both the classic and falafel variety — plus charcoal-grilled chicken skewers, roti canai and good ol' sausages in bread.
Wines and spritzes will also be on the drinks menu, and, in terms of entertainment, you'll be able play lawn games and listen to live tunes.
