Ballarat Beer Festival

The countdown is on for summer’s unmissable beer event, Ballarat Beer Festival. This year we’re moving to a totally new location, the easily accessible and beautiful shores of Lake Wendouree.

With shade aplenty and the lake offering a cooling respite to the summer heat, this is the perfect day to round up your mates, grab a picnic blanket and take in over 20,000 square metres of lakeside beer action.

A boulevard of brewers will offer a kaleidoscope of tastes and flavours – take your pick from over 150 different brews from across Australia and around the world.

The year’s Lakeside Edition is all about celebrating the very best of craft beer culture with beer education classes, blind tastings, trivia games, the popular brewers sack race and plenty more to keep you busy.

A great line up of local and Australian bands will be providing the soundtrack to your day.

Scattered about the grounds will be an extended range of street food options, all offering global cuisines to help wash down your favourite brew.

For those seeking alternative tastes, local wineries are presenting a selection of mouth-watering wines and wine cocktails. There will be plenty of non-alcoholic drink options too.

Where: Lake Wendouree, Ballarat, Corner Windmill Drive and Wendouree Parade, Ballarat, Victoria
When: Saturday Jan 20 2018
