One of the country's biggest annual beer festivals returns to Brisbane for a fifth time this September.
The Beer InCider Experience has grown into a highlight for Queensland's beer lovers and this year will be welcoming more than 60 independent beer and cider producers to Brisbane Showgrounds over two days.
Joining them will be a musical lineup headlined by The Smith Street Band (who've brewed an IPA for the event), entertainment that includes a "ping pong arena" and plenty of food offerings that include stalls run by Brisbane beer venues Tippler's Tap and Netherworld.
Beer lovers can grab a seat at the Brewer Stage presented by Aether Brewing for a program of Q&A sessions and lively debates.
Festival founder Martin Keetels says: “Not only will this year’s event have more breweries than ever before, it will also have more festival exclusive brews and collaborations."
You can view the full list of brewers here, while the musical lineup also includes The Jungle Giants, Tired Lion, Bad//Dreems, Press Club, Bugs, Bris182 and Sweater Curse.
