Beer festivals are becoming increasingly common, but there aren't many that match the lofty standards set by Melbourne's Brewers Feast. Held in the lush surrounds of the Abbotsford Convent, Brewers Feast takes place over the February 3–4 weekend and will take your tastebuds on a hoppy tour with its expansive range of beers and ciders.

There'll be over 80 different brews to try from across Australia and highlights include Sydney's Stockade Brew Co, Victorian brewer Prickly Moses, well-loved Stone & Wood, the brightly-labelled Kaiju! and lots more. In addition, there'll be 12 beers brewed exclusively for the festival, made using rare ingredients and brewed in collaboration with malt, hops and yeast supplier, Bintani.

The festival starts in the best possible way, with all attendees enjoying a free glass of 'Duel Hoppy Lager' from Stockade Brew Co on entry. When it's time to pause drinking for a well-earned feed, you can choose from Bigger than Texas BBQ, Twisted Mac's cheesy delights, the solid burgs at St Kilda Burger Bar and sweets from Jamm'd. For all you vegan and vegetarian beer-lovers, don't fret — most stalls will be serving up meat-free options.

Alongside food and drink, there'll be a stellar lineup of local music talent to keep you entertained throughout the festival. Local artists, performing across two stages, will take the novel approach of recommending a beverage to enjoy alongside their tunes.

To celebrate the launch of Brewers Feast 2018, we're offering up the ultimate VIP experience. Enjoy two nights accommodation at Abbotsford's Playhouse Serviced Apartments (a short ten-minute drive from the festival) a double pass to each session of Brewers Feast, beer and food vouchers to use at the festival and a case of great craft beer to take home.
