Moon Dog’s Mate Fest 2019

October 29, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Mate Fest Moon Dog

Mate Fest 2019 – Australia’s first ever international invitational beer fest which is all about good beer shared with good mates.

Melbourne’s own Moon Dog Craft Brewery Co. have invited all of their best brewer mates from all across the globe to come to Melbourne this November and showcase their beers and have a party to celebrate good beer and good mates at the brand-new Moon Dog World in Preston.

There will be 120 beers over the festival weekend from 22 international breweries many of which have never been poured in Australia before and a chance to meet and chat to the brewers.

The two sessions across Friday, 15th November (6pm – 11pm) and Saturday, 16th November (12pm – 6pm) will include tastings, masterclasses, brewery tours, delicious food and a whole bunch of other fun activities.

“This is the first ever global beer invitational in Australia. Most of these breweries have never had their beers land on Australia’s shores before in any way so it will be the first chance to try their beers for the very first time”, says Dave Langlands, Mate Fest Organiser and Moon Dog’s Export Sales Manager.
