This may be the fourteenth incarnation of the Canberra Craft Beer & Cider Festival but, by virtue of most people being well overdue for a massive open-air session, it may also be the most anticipated yet.
Just imagine it: you're roaming the grounds, glass in hand, with more than 250 different beers and ciders on tap from 40-odd local producers, popping your head into a beer & food matching session, gobbing down mountains of gourmet food, kicking back to listen to some live tunes... bliss.

As ever it's being held in the grounds of the Mercure Canberra, but with a little bit of expansion and reconfiguration out to the adjoining lawns of Batman and Gooreen Streets in Braddon to make things more Covid-safe.
To help prevent the spread of the nasties, it'll also be a cashless event that runs across two sessions: 11am to 2pm and 3pm to 6pm.
Tickets are available now with online sales just $20, or $30 at the gate on the day.
