All Aboard For Pint of Origin 2024

All aboard, beer lovers! The lineup for Pint of Origin 2024 is locked and loaded.

Australia's biggest, longest, most delicious and diverse pub crawl returns to Melbourne for a 12th time from May 10 to 19 – and we've got one seriously tasty offering for you.

The 2024 festival features a blend of old #PoO24 favourites – some of them with new host regions, fresh faces, and a couple of past Pint of Origin venues returning after a hiatus.

And, in a festival first, we welcome Whisky and Alement to the fold. The 2023 World Whiskies Awards World's Best Whisky Bar (Rest of World) will become the Pint of Origin Boilermaker Hub, showcasing beer and whisky pairings from around the globe.

The other debutants are Heartbreaker, who will be representing the beers and brewers of Canada, and CoConspirators Brewpub, where you'll find the breweries of the Territories as well as some collabs they're creating with the CoCon brewers.

And, aside from a few regions changing hands, you'll also notice a change in the way home state brewers are represented. Regional Victorian brewers are back at one venue – The Cherry Tree – while those of Greater Melbourne will be split across two pubs. Freddie Wimpoles in St Kilda will be showcasing brewers from South of the Yarra; The Terminus in Fitzroy North will be the place to check out the best of beer North of the Yarra.


The full Pint of Origin website will go live in April, at which point you'll be able to apply for a Pint of Origin Passport, see which breweries will be appearing where, and what events the host venues are planning on top of their ten days of tap takeovers.

We're making some improvements to the Passports for 2024 and have a few other new ideas we look forward to sharing with you as May 10 approaches.

For now, however, mark your diaries, tell your friends, and get ready to travel the world of beer at 21 great Melbourne venues.
