The long-running, beer-showcasing and taste-making Ballarat Beer Festival is back in 2022, with it set to take over the city's beautiful North Gardens once again.
On February 19, you'll be able to head to that stunning spot, set up a picnic blanket by the lake or in the shade of a tree and choose from 150 beers from the likes of KAIJU!, Stomping Ground, Moon Dog, The Public Brewery, Fury & Son and Blackman's, plus ciders, local wines or other drops too.
Held over both an afternoon and evening session, the 2022 festival will feature many of the moments that have made it such a drawcard over the years including beer education classes, trivia games, live music and the ever-popular brewers' sack race.
Add in a range of street food options across a range of cuisines and VIP tickets for those seeking an enhanced festival experience and you have a what's a great day for Ballarat locals and a beer festival worth travelling for.
General admission tickets cost $35pp per session and $50 for all-day passes. There are other ticketing options, including discounts for group bookings. And we've got tickets to give away to members of our beer club, The Crafty Cabal, too – see below.
