The Crafty Planner: October 8 to 14
October 8 2012 by Crafty Pint

Take your pick! From coast to coast, there’s a veritable cavalcade of craft beer activity this week, with Oktoberfests continuing and plenty of other goodness, from chances to meet brewers and beer degustations to the arrival in Oz of new beers from overseas. In fact, keen Oktoberfest fans could potentially hit up four in one day in Victoria on Saturday by heading to the Mornington Peninsula via St Kilda East. Or, if you’re really, really keen, you could make it five by heading to the High Country too.

If you like the sound of anything below, head to our Events Diary here for the full details. And if you have a craft beer event you’d like adding, send the information to events@craftypint.com.
