Move over Germany, The Australian Hotel will again host its renowned two-day beer bash to celebrate what some Aussies call water… BEER! The 7th Annual Australian Beer Festival is back with a bang and is set to live up to its reputation of being the biggest beer festival in the Country.

This year, Gloucester Street will be completely shut down, lined up with drinking stalls and inundated with beer connoisseurs, the beer curious and beer lovers from across the country. Along with the beer, an increased number of ciders will also be on show as well as live entertainment, MEET THE BREWER sessions, BBQ stalls and our famous Gourmet Pizzas. The launch of the 2011 Home Brew Championship will also take place in the lead up to the festival, giving local brewers a chance to put their beer making skills to the test. Points will be awarded for appearance, aroma, flavor and body, technical quality and style with the winner showcasing their home brew at their own stall at the beer festival.

The public will also be able to taste and judge beers from over 20 brewers nation wide helping the festival crown the People’s Choice Awards. Aside from our own love of Australian beers, the hotel puts this weekend on the market and gives the craft beer industry the recognition it so deserves.

More than 12,000 people are expected to attend the festival and 20,000 litres of beer to be consumed over the two-day event.

You’ll be able to pre-purchase your tickets on our website from 1st September. The advantage of this is you won’t have to live up in the long queues to purchase tickets.
