There are many things to do in Albury, but perhaps the one event that many visitors keep coming back for is the annual Great Australian Beer Festival. If you’re a craft beer or cider lover, this once a year event will certainly appeal to you. Well, who wouldn’t? Beer lover or not, you can sample all the products the country’s best brewers have to offer, which is definitely something you don’t want to miss!

When And Where

On the 2nd of December, 2017, the country’s best brewers will gather at Albury’s QE11 Square to showcase their artisanal talents in making one of the most popular alcoholic beverages in the world: the humble beer. Hundreds of mouth-watering brews are expected to make their appearance at this joyous occasion, making the event indeed a beer lover’s paradise.

However, while brewers are expected to serve up their handcrafted beers and ciders for tasting at the Albury Beer Festival 2017, event organisers are assuring festival goers that the festival is more than just an excuse to drink beer. It will also be a delight to your visual and auditory senses as well.

Live Music And More

If you’re a fan of live music and performances, you’re in for a treat because a number of local, national, and international acts are expected to perform at the event. According to the festival committee, there will be a variety of non-stop live entertainment featuring a selection of vaudeville, cabaret, and circus style performances.

Apart from the live performances, there will also be free interactive master classes hosted by Australia’s industry experts and gourmet food producers. Of course, if there are food classes, expect to have lots of food to taste, as well! There will be a wide selection of tasty meals and snacks, as well as food trucks and a massive BBQ that will keep you fuelled all throughout the day.
