Food trucks aplenty have always been on Welcome to Bowen Hills' menu. Food and booze-themed events, too. More than two years after opening, the inner-city spot has been delivering on both — and just as it did in 2018 and 2019, it's hosting a big gin festival to prove it.
Not just any big gin festival, mind you. This is the Brisbane Gin Festival, taking place from 12pm on Saturday, September 19. Juniper spirits will be flowing, with a heap of different gin stalls serving up free tastings from midday. If you're a fan of Four Pillars, Brookies, Tanqueray, Manly Spirits Co, Larrikin and more, then your tastebuds will be happy.
There'll be food onsite as usual, and gin lovers can also expect inventive takes on the good ol' G&T as well as other creative gin cocktails. WtBH's main bar will be slinging more than 60 varieties of the drink in question, too, because gin and meals-on-wheels go together nicely at this Ekka showgrounds hangout.
Entry is free — although, if you're keen on a cocktail from each stall, you'll need to purchase tokens to redeem for drinks.
