Set to put a spring in your step as we enter a new season, Crafted Beer & Cider Festival is returning to the Gold Coast on Saturday September 12 for another froth-filled day of fun. Never one to disappoint, this year’s festival will see 40 of the craftiest beer-istas pouring 200-plus brews, including limited-edition sips and festival exclusives alongside a jam-packed line-up of entertainment and eats. So what are you waiting for? Pick up your mates, roll out the ol’ picnic blanket and enjoy an afternoon of top-notch nosh, live music and some beautiful brews by the beach.
Kicking off at 12:00 pm and running through until 8:30 pm at Kurrawa Park in Broadbeach, Crafted Beer & Cider Festival is set to be a sun-soaked Saturday filled to the brim with local, national and international beer and cider makers. Knowledgeable bartenders will be pouring everything from IPAs to sours, as well as fresh takes on lagers, ales and ciders. Local frothy favourites will head the boozy line-up including the likes of Currumbin Valley Brewing Co., Balter, Lost Palms and Black Hops Brewery, which will be joined by Brisbane characters Green Beacon Brewing Co., Soapbox Beer and Ballistic Beer Co. Searching for something a tad stronger than your average lager? The gin-slinging crew from Miami distillery Granddad Jack’s will also be making an appearance, shaking classy cocktails from a higher vantage point – a two-storey vintage bar.
So you can pair your sips with a snack or two, the beachside festival will also feature a bevy of drool-worthy gourmet food trucks, with Abbiocco Food Truck, California Tacos, Cychos Buffalo Wings, Micasa Food Truck, QLD Pizza Brothers and The Wiener House dishing up delicious beer-friendly eats. Once your belly is full and you’ve tried a couple of different drops, treat your ears to some tunes from a dynamite roster of musicians playing live and loud throughout the afternoon. There’s plenty more still to be revealed, so keep your eyes peeled on the festival website for further updates.
