The globe-trotting flavour fest that is Pint of Origin is back this year. This fan-favourite event sees bars and pubs across the city turn over their taps to spotlight top-notch beers from different corners of the world.

2024's instalment runs from Friday, May 10–Sunday, May 19, shaking up taplists at much-loved venues like Co-Conspirators Brewpub, Terminus Hotel, The Lincoln and The Windsor Alehouse. Each drinking hole will spend ten days heroing brews from a different regional, interstate or international destination, giving punters the chance to broaden their horizons while scoping out some stellar new sips.

Each tap takeover will span a range of beer styles from a stack of different breweries — many of which aren't readily found in Melbourne. You can hit The Catfish for a taste of New Zealand's beer scene or even explore a rotation of UK brews at Whitehart.

Also in the 21-strong lineup, Benchwarmer is spotlighting Japanese drops, Heartbreaker is slinging Canadian cold ones, and Fitzroy's Near & Far is diving into some full-blown appreciation for South Australian beers.

Many of the venues are also doing guided tastings, pairing events, dinners, trivia and meet-the-brewer sessions throughout the takeover. Plus, if you keep track of your wanderings with a Pint of Origin digital passport, you'll be in with a shot at some great prizes.
