As mentioned in our article on the Brewsvegas program launch, this year sees the festival crew add a Launch Party to the week's festivities.
The night before the program proper kicks off, they're inviting you to join them and a bunch of brewers at Wandering Cooks, Brisbane's first incubator for food entrepreneurs. Based in South Brisbane, their communal, commercial kitchen facilities and food storage space, along with workshops and a mentoring program, are helping to nurture Brisbane's food talent, providing a place for their ideas to grow and creativity to soar.
Brewsvegas is taking over for the night and has invited some local food trucks to do the catering: Beerkary Bakery, Char Baby World Barbeque, Juan More Taco - Fresh Tacos, Pizzantica - The Pizza Kombi and Vira Lata - Brazilian.
Brewers locked in so far include 4 Hearts, All Inn Brewing, Byron Bay Brewery, Fortitude Brewing, Green Beacon, Newstead Brewing Co, Noisy Minor, Red Bay Brewing and Stone and Wood, with more to be announced.
The party kicks off at 5pm, entry is free and they'll be holding a charity raffle that gives those in attendance the chance to win Brewsvegas Beer money for the whole week. Prize pack includes a Brewsvegas Tee, a Growler of the official Brewsvegas beer and $400 beer money to spend at you favourite events and venues throughout the week.
