Regarded by many in the industry as Australia’s best winter beer festival, Bendigo On The Hop is back again to showcase some of the best local and national independent breweries.
Bendigo On The Hop is a unique beer festival in manny ways, not least being that its venues play an important part in the beer lover’s experience. The city is fortunate to have a number of good beer venues, and punters can make their way around a 1.2km course where they sample as they go while taking in the sights, sounds and smells of the historic Bendigo landscape.
There’s a mix of traditional pubs, funky bars, artistic flair and outdoor pop-ups showcasing local produce, live music and most importantly, unique and rare beers, many of which will only be available at the festival. If you’re new to beer, there will be plenty of entry-level brews on offer as well.
All you need is an open mind and a good crew to enjoy the day with! Why not make a weekend of it and head up the day before. The Cambrian Hotel will again be hosting the super-fun Opening Night party and Brewers Dinner on Friday 25 August where you can meet and greet with some of the best brewers in Australia.
Bendigo On The Hop tickets are strictly limited to 2,000 and will definitely sell out so make sure to book yours now.
