Kingdom of Beers 2021 — CANCELLED
Drink your way through the best brews from this year's Royal Queensland Food and Wine Awards.
UPDATE, Thursday, April 8: Kingdom of Beers has been cancelled for 2021. This year's event was due to be held as part of the Brisbane Cycling Festival, which postponed the remainder of its activities after Brisbane's recent lockdown.
Choosing which beer to drink at any given time can be far more difficult than it sounds. There are just so many brands, breweries, types and flavours, so you can be forgiven for feeling completely spoiled for choice. No one wants to start sipping a substandard tipple — or get stuck with a pint of something that's merely average. At Kingdom of Beers, though, it'll be top brews all the way, because that's what this returning Brisbane beer festival is all about.
On Friday, April 9 (from 11am–7pm), Saturday, April 10 (11am–6pm) and Sunday, April 11 (11am–4pm), more than 20 of Australia's best breweries will be serving up 100-plus stellar beers. And you'll know they're good because some of them will be medal-winners, with the event focusing on brews that scored big at the Royal Queensland Food and Wine Show's annual Beer Awards. The event's best 2021 picks have already been announced, and you'll be drinking them.
While you're sipping your way around Brisbane Showgrounds, you'll also be able to grab a bite, including wagyu rolls. Entry is free, but you'll obviously need to pay for whatever you'd like to eat and drink.
This year's Kingdom of Beers takes place during the Brisbane Cycling Festival, too — so if you like pushing pedals and top-notch brews, you'll truly be in your element.
