Since setting up its local base back in 2019, 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 annual Collabfest festival, you'll be encouraged to try yeasty bevvies from other breweries.

Running from Thursday, October 21–Sunday, October 24, this weekend-long event will celebrate brews from five other beer-making outfits from across southeast Queensland: Currumbin Valley, Helios, Land & Sea, Slipstream and Terella. 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, which is obviously when the party begins. Then, until Sunday, you'll be able to drop by and drink the Collabfest brews whenever you like.

Although BrewDog is making a big deal of teaming up with other brewers, this fest is simply an expansion of its current approach. Already, its DogTap taproom serves up other tipples from the Sunshine State — but when it comes to beer, any excuse for a party will do.
