Heaven is in Orange on Saturday March 5 as the Showground Pavilions play host to Crafted LIVE, a new festival dedicated to beer and BBQ.
For a full day, you'll be treated to some of the best BBQ you'll find in the country as teams of pros compete for a prize pool of $6,500 – in an event sanctioned by the Australian Barbecue Alliance, no less. While the experts strut their stuff over the smokers and grills, you'll be able to quench your thirst with beer and cider from nearly 20 different small producers.
Throughout the day you'll be able to join masterclasses that explore everything from explaining different cuts of meat through to international cider tasting and discovering how best to use beer in your own barbecuing.
There'll be plenty of entertainment too with MC Tim Ross keeping things moving, while musicians range from rockabilly and country to chilled out tunes, all the way through to headliners Thirsty Merc.
All in all, it'll be a grand day out in central NSW.
Tickets are $40 (which includes ten tasting tokens), or get a group of five together and nab a 25% discount. You'll find all the info about buying tickets, tokens and merch on the Crafted LIVE website.
