Between Thursday, March 12–Sunday, March 22, you won't need an excuse to sink a few brews in Brisbane. You don't need one any day anyway, of course, but these 11 days are all about beer, more beer and then even more beer — because that's what Brewsvegas is all about.

Returning for its huge seventh year, the city-wide festival is celebrating ales, lagers, stouts, porters and pilsners all around town — and with quite the range of events. A whopping 59 venues are taking part, basically turning Brissie into one big bar crawl. Start with the big launch party at Stone & Wood's recently opened Fortitude Valley digs, then pack out your diary with more beer-focused activities and festivities than you can currently imagine.

Among the highlights: beer karaoke, beer painting sessions, beer cocktails, beer and board games, a four-course 'beergustation', and beer with both bowling and boules. Young Henrys is bringing its Rock & Roll Circus to town for the first time, everything from beer and jazz to a New Kids on the Block vinyl night will get your toes tapping, and you can choose between multiple block parties and multiple crawls of Brisbane's brewery-filled suburbs.

Because pairing beer with different foods is always on this fest's agenda, expect beer with oysters, doughnuts, flapjacks, bacon, cheese, shanks, brunch and ice cream — with the latter turning your humble brew into a beer float. A soiree dedicated to one of the most under-appreciated drinks there is, the shandy, is also on the bill.

A new burger challenge is part of the fun too, featuring 20 different Brissie bars and 20 new burgs — all paired with a craft brew, naturally.

And for the fourth year running, Brewsvegas will be hosting its Pint of Origin battle, with nine venues each focusing on different Aussie states and overseas countries — so you can take your beer-loving tastebuds on a whirlwind tour without leaving the city.
