Like beer? Like trying local boutique brews? Ever feel a little overwhelmed by the number of options available? While no one should complain about the wide variety of beverages those fond of a tipple can now access, attempting to try them all can prove overwhelming. That's where Five Flavours comes in.
Changing its microbrewery of the moment at each event, the festival showcases different varieties to give beer lovers a taste of the options they might be missing. On this year's Ekka public holiday on Wednesday, August 15, Brew Dog and Hills Cider will be competing for the limelight, serving up their finest tipples.
Yes, it's a brew off of the beer versus cider variety — but drinks aren't the only thing on offer at Five Flavours. There'll also be live music, plus doggos are welcome. And, the festival features a menu of contemporary morsels ranging from pulled pork bao to lamb yiros, with a meal and one beer included in the $24.90 (pre-sale) to $39.90 admission price.
