October’s Fed Square Victorian Microbreweries Showcase is set to expand out of the Atrium, although plans to hold a third, late night session on the Thursday evening have been scrapped due to a range of logistical issues for both brewers and the organisers. However, having sold out both evenings at the past couple of events, the organisers have opted to hold a series of short “Meet the Brewers” sessions in the BMW Edge space in Fed Square on Thursday night that anyone who has a ticket for the Showcase can attend for free. It’s hoped these will help ease congestion at an event that has grown rapidly in popularity as the craft beer scene in Victoria has exploded.

“The aim is to offer ticket holders more than the chance to taste the beer and talk to the brewers,” says Roland. “I’d like to see the event continue to evolve and find new ways to educate people about the beer they’re drinking and the beer the brewers are making.”

All being well, The Crafty Pint will be hosting one or two of these sessions so watch this space for details of who’ll be appearing and what we’ll be wanting to find out from them. The final lineup of brewers and brewing companies exhibiting is:

Bright Brewery
2 Brothers
Prickly Moses
3 Ravens
Red Duck
Mountain Goat
Forrest Brewing
Matilda Bay
Barleycorn Brewers
Black Heart Brewery
Bridge Road
Buckley’s Brewery
Grand Ridge
Portland Hotel
Mornington Peninsula Brewery
Napoleone & Co Cider
Rebello Wines
Southern Bay Brewing Co
Three Troupers
Tooborac Hotel & Brewery
True South
Two Birds Brewing
White Rabbit

It takes place on October 19 and 20, starting at 4.30pm each day. We’ve got a pair of tickets to each of the sessions to give away in this Friday’s newsletter. Tickets will be also available through Ticketmaster soon.

If you want to whet your appetite – or are keen to find out what it’s all about if you’ve never been – we took a camera along to the last one just for you:
