“I played the Ballarat Beer Festival last year with my fellow You Am I brothers – it was the first time we’d played anything of its kind and was a true testament to all that a thriving, culturally rich town like Ballarat has to offer.
“We were supplied with all manner of local hop-based delights and had a wonderful time,” says Davey.
With this 2017 event taking place on January 21, it’s set to be the biggest event of the festival’s history, with more than 40 brewers making their way down to the festival and over 20 new beers being released on the day by various brewers.
Along with beer festivities, there will also be a series of family-friendly activities, including human-sized foosball as part of the ‘Beerllarat Olympics’.
