The Good Beer Week Gala Showcase heads to the heart of Melbourne and the site of many a past microbreweries showcase in 2017.
Fed Square will host the event over two evenings, offering guests the chance to get their hands on the official print program for the seventh Good Beer Week in May while also sampling beers from 36 Australian breweries in the Atrium.
The Gala Showcase will also feature free masterclasses, meet the brewer sessions and offer attendees the chance to vote for the Bintani People’s Choice Awards for their favourite beer and brewery of the Showcase, which will be announced at the final Friday evening session.
Good Beer Week, the biggest beer festival in the Southern Hemisphere, is an independent and not-for-profit festival that celebrates and promotes the renaissance that craft beer is enjoying globally. Since the festival’s inception in 2011, its central aim is to promote good beer and the community and culture that surround it.
