While it the main event might not be back until May, it's never too early to start getting excited for the return of Melbourne's Good Beer Week – especially when the event heralding the arrival of 2018's program is just around the corner.
By bringing together brewers and beer lovers, the Good Beer Week Gala Showcase is a much loved celebration with which to launch the festival's program.
Taking over Fed Square's Atrium for two evenings, the 2018 Gala Showcase will feature more than 30 breweries, many of whom have promised to bring along some special beers.
The twin sessions also include masterclasses, food vendors and the return of the coveted Bintani People's Choice Award.
Tickets to the showcase are available from 9am on February 15.
- Thursday March 22 – 5pm to 9pm
- Friday March 23 – 5pm to 9pm
