Good Beer Week returns to Melbourne this May, now in it’s sixth year. Also returning to Melbourne is the prelude event, the Good Beer Week Gala Showcase.
Sponsored by the City of Yarra, the gala event features 24 brewers from across Australia, showcasing some fantastic new brews, and their old favourites. Feature brewers of the event include; White Rabbit, Boatrocker Brewery, Bridge Road Brewery, Feral Brewery, Temple Brewery, Hawkers Beer, Red Hill Brewery, Colonial Brewing Co, Forrest Brewing Co, Tooborac Brewery, Edge Brewing Project, Clare Valley Brewing, KAIJU! Beer, Exit Brewing, Blackman’s Brewery, Hawthorn Brewing Co and Holgate Brewhouse among others.
The Gala Showcase will mark the launch of the 2016 Official Good Beer Week Program, an event that is internationally acclaimed as ‘the best beer week in the world’ – now that’s some endorsement.
Tickets to the showcase are limited to 400 spots available per consumer session and offer beer lovers the opportunity to taste some delicious brews ahead of the main event in May.
Tickets cost $45 + BF or $50 on the door and include a tasting booklet, 20 x 60ml beer samples and a food voucher to be redeemed at the food trucks. The Gala Showcase works on a token system of twenty 60ml tastings, with $1 (ex-gst) rebate given back to the brewers from each token.
Good Beer Week 2016 is an independent and not-for-profit festival that celebrates and promotes the good beer community, which has been receiving a global renaissance of late.
