Brewers Feast 2020
Take your tastebuds on a hoppy tour at this two-day beer festival.
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 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 Wayward Brewing Co, Jamieson's Wrong Side Brewing and the well-loved Stone & Wood. In addition, there'll be 16 beers brewed exclusively for the festival, made using rare ingredients and brewed in collaboration with malt, hops and yeast supplier, Bintani.
When it's time to pause drinking for a well-earned feed, you can choose from Bigger than Texas BBQ, the solid burgs at Ron's Hand Burger and greek donuts from Honey Dee Loukoumades. 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.
The festivities will run from 11am–8pm on Saturday and 11am–5pm on Sunday. You have to pay for general entry ($37.50 on Saturday and $22.50 on Sunday), and you'll have to pay for all your food and drinks on top of that.
