BrewDog Australia Collabfest
The Scottish beer behemoth is dedicating a weekend to celebrating four local breweries — and their brand new brews.
For the past year, BrewDog has been serving Brisbanites plenty of cold ones, with the Scottish beer behemoth making this sunny city of ours its Australian home. Over that time, you've probably sat by the river and knocked back the company's brews — but at its new festival, you'll be encouraged to try yeasty bevvies from other breweries.
Called Collabfest, the weekend-long event will celebrate brews from four other beer-making outfits from across southeast Queensland: Currumbin Valley Brewing, Black Hops, Brouhaha and FICK. They'll be brewing brand new (and unique) beers for the occasion, too, so expect to taste something that you haven't sipped before.
There are two parts to the shindig. First, it all kicks off with a Thursday night launch, where you'll be able to chat to the brewers. Then, until Sunday, you'll be able to drop by and drink their wares whenever you like.
The whole event runs across Thursday, November 19–Sunday, November 22 — and, although BrewDog is making a big deal of it, it's simply an expansion of its current approach. Already, its DogTap taproom serves up other tipples from the Sunshine State including Range Brewing, Black Hops, Brouhaha, Aether and Sea Legs. But when it comes to beer, any excuse for a party will do.
