There are two types of beer festivals: the kind you throw for yourself when you're having a few brews with your friends, and the ones that pubs put together with plenty of painstaking planning. A mainstay at The Australian Heritage Hotel, the Australian Beer Festival falls into the latter category — and after 13 years of serving brews, it'll make you wish it was on every weekend.

Alas, October 13 to 15 is the time to get your ale-loving fix this time round, complete with a packed lineup of beverages. Expect 30 different breweries, more than 120 Australian beers and ciders, and everything from gourmet food stalls and an oyster bar to meet the brewer sessions and blind tastings, all across a huge three-day street party.

Brewers on hand will include 4 Pines Beer, Grifter Brewing, Pirate Life Brewing, Balter Brewing and more, shining a spotlight on Sydney and Aussie beer makers alike. Tickets cost $35, which includes a tasting cup and ten tasting tokens — and a brew-tastic day out.
