The 2016 Brewers Feast is stocking some great craft beer and food. What can we expect?
Supporting the local industry was important for us in year one so we're making Brewers Feast 2016 a showcase of some of the best Victorian craft beers. What's exciting in the festival is rare beers, like 7 Cent's Belly Button beer or Cavalier Brewing their Hefeweizen for the first time in over four years. Beer and food reaches parts of the brain that beer alone can’t. The wood fire pizza, falafel with salad, 12-hour smoked brisket and Southern fried chicken are made from the finest quality ingredients, expertly prepared and guaranteed to tantalise the tastebuds.
What made you choose the Abbotsford Convent as the location?
Abbotsford Convent, set among lush gardens with the magnificent medieval French architecture as a backdrop, is the perfect setting.
The festival’s described as Australia's first gourmet sustainable craft beer and food festival - how does sustainability work into all this?
We only use the finest ingredients that are locally grown and sourced. Our aim is to support small business and the Victorian farming regions that provide the meat and food products to the local barley, hop and wheat industries.
You've also got a stellar musical lineup to keep people entertained. Who's a must see act on the day?
The main stage lineup brings the complete event experience with standout artists Woodlock, Harrison Strom, Jed Rowe, The Hunter Express, Lorikeet and more.
