As far as beer festivals go, this newcomer sure has the strangest name. The inaugural Blobfish Beer Festival debuts at North Melbourne's Meat Market next month, pulling together a lineup that celebrates the sour, the funky and the delightfully different.

Headed up by the team at Footscray's own Hop Nation Brewing, the tasting party will run across two sessions on Saturday, August 24, offering punters the chance to sample a whole swag of rare and unusual beers from 16 top Aussie and New Zealand labels. Get set to sip a diverse range of sours, saisons, barrel-aged brews, fruity concoctions and rare small-batch runs, from the likes of NZ's Garage Project, Sydney's Wildflower, Van Dieman in Tas, Queensland's Fathom by Green Beacon and locals Future Mountain and La Sirène.

And the options don't end there, either, with a lager-focused tinnie bar to 'cleanse the palate' between tastings, wine from Red Hill's Kerri Greens and an oyster bar shucking all through the day. You can even polish up your cheese and beer matching skills, under the expert guidance of The Beer and Cheese Theory.

A ticket will cost you $70, which includes entry, a keepsake Blobfish beer glass and $20 worth of tasting tokens. You'll also score a food voucher to spend on snacks from the Blobfish Kitchen pop-up restaurant.

Blobfish sessions run from 11.30m–3pm and 4.30–8pm.
