One of the country's biggest annual beer festivals returns to Brisbane for a sixth time in March.
The Beer InCider Experience has grown into a highlight for Queensland's beer lovers and this year will be welcoming more than 50 independent beer and cider producers to Brisbane Showgrounds on March 9.
Food will be provided by some of Brisbane's top craft beer venues, including Tippler's Tap, Netherworld and popular food trucks like Hoy Pinoy BBQ and Crunchy's Waffles.
Joining them on March 2 will be a musical lineup headlined by rock 'n' roll royalty Something For Kate and indie darlings the DMA's, plus roaming entertainment and a ping pong arena.
To help highlight the close relationship between local beer and music, Something for Kate collaborated with Mornington Peninsula Brewery to brew the official festival beer. Miracle Cure is a Rye IPA and an ode to the Aussie band’s song from their 2012 album, Leave Your Soul To Science.
You can view the full list of brewers here, while the musical lineup also includes Alex the Astronaut, WAAX, West Thebarton and Loser.
NB 2019 will also see the inaugural Melbourne Beer InCider Experience take place. You can find details of that event here.
Tickets to the Melbourne event cost $60 plus booking fee, which includes the 2019 Festival Program, a reusable 320mL festival cup and public transport to and from the festival.
