Queensland vs Australia IPA Blind Tasting at Milton Common

Keen to see how the best of the Sunshine State stands up against the rest of Australia?

Join The Crafty Pint and friends at Milton Common for another of our blind tasting events – but this time with a twist...

Rather than lining up a bunch of beers in the same style, we're pitting a stack of IPAs from Queensland brewers against IPAs from the other Aussie states.

You'll get to taste three flights of beers blind – hazies, West Coasts and big IPAs – with each flight featuring two of the best examples from Queensland and two from elsewhere. It's up to you to score them on their merits using only your senses – you'll get no clues as to which beer is in which glass.

Once we collect your scores at the end, not only will we be able to declare the winners from each round and an overall champion, we'll also be able to see if Queensland gains bragging rights!

The event kicks off at 2pm on September 10 in the Mezzanine at Milton Common – and we'll have some special guests from Lost Palms and SURE Brewing joining us and the host brewers on the day, as well as prizes for best guesses and funniest answers.

Tickets cost $49pp – or just $25pp for members of The Crafty Pint's beer club, The Crafty Cabal. (Join the Cabal here.)


Tickets include:

  • a welcome beer on arrival
  • 12 x tasting glasses of various IPAs
  • nibbles and shared platters (once the scoring is done)
