Good Beer Week has grown from the spark of an idea to a global festival made up of more than 300 diverse and innovative events that attracts seventy five thousand attendees from across Australia and overseas.
It will take place across Melbourne and Victoria from the 15th to 24th May.
Run by an independent, not-for-profit association, the program has grown almost 500 percent in size since launching in May 2011 and in 2019 it celebrates its eighth anniversary with a lineup that features guests from around the world, big name chefs, masterclasses, sublime degustations, live music and so much more.
It is Australia’s preeminent beer event, one that has inspired smaller imitators interstate and in New Zealand, and is well placed to achieve its founders’ stated goal of establishing the leading beer festival in the Asia Pacific region.
It is the biggest single platform for local brewers and beer businesses to showcase themselves to a broad audience and also plays host to the Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA) and the three-day GABS Beer, Cider, Food and Festival at the Royal Exhibition Buildi
