Viva Brewsvegas! Brisbane’s biggest beer festival is back with more hoppy happenings than ever before
It’s no secret that Brisbane’s craft beer scene is absolutely booming – we have some of the coolest, most sustainable and downright innovative breweries in the country. Every year, hop-heads eagerly anticipate the city’s largest celebration of indie beer culture – we’re talking Brewsvegas, baby! Held from March 10–18 across a huge host of Brisbane venues, the mega-festival has something for everyone (and every taste).
In the five years that it’s been dominating our city, the Brewsvegas concept has continued to evolve and grow along with Brisbane’s craft beer scene. What started as a humble event born from appreciating good beer has grown into a multi-day festival that encompasses events, activities, tastings and dinners designed to highlight the diversity of our unique beer landscape. We meant it when we said Brewsvegas has something for everyone – you can navigate the program according to passion (events for hardcore brew-fans), culture (rad parties) and food (self-explanatory).
If you thought that Brewsvegas is strictly about tastings and brewers sharing their secrets, you’re about to have your mind blown by the huge range of events going down. Last year’s equal parts fun and ridiculous Japanese Game Show Night makes a return to Zero Fox, as well as All Inn Brewing Co.’s spicy and spirited Latin street fiesta. Special one-off food events include an IPA and cheese degustation at Brewski, a Brew-tal feast at Wandering Cooks, a sustainable beer dinner at Embassy Hotel and the return of the hotly anticipated (heh) annual chilli cook-off at Kettle and Tin.
