Craft Beer Festivals

Australians are widely-known for their love of beer and great hospitality, so in a way, a beer festival is representative of Aussie culture. Luckily for you and every other Aussie out there, there’s a range of excellent events that represent the essence of the people’s spirit. From Melbourne and Sydney to the ports of Fremantle, you’ll find a great selection of festivals that you can attend with your family and friends for a great, memorable day out.

Introduction

With the massive growth of micro-breweries over the last number of years and more craft beers than ever to choose from, it’s only fitting we should have festivals to celebrate all things beer. And, while appreciating a tall cold one is one thing, most beer fans are going to want to sample multiple of these unique beers from the different producers. To get the most out of any beer festival, it goes without saying that the car keys should be left at home. Instead, why not hire a bus and a driver, round up a gang of your best beer-loving buddies and enjoy a few brews worry-free.

Let’s take a look at a few of the best craft beer festivals in Australia that you simply can’t miss.
