The Ballarat Beer Festival is a family-friendly festival filled with Australia’s leading craft beer brewers, a great range of live bands, children’s activities, many gourmet food trucks and craft beer masterclasses.
Recently voted Australia’s most popular regional craft beer festival, Ballarat Beer Festival is held on February 19, 2022. Situated in the North Gardens near Lake Wendouree, the new site offers plenty of natural shade from the abundant trees, and a relaxing rural picnic style atmosphere.
With shade aplenty from the abundant trees offering 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 garden 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 regional award-winning wines.
The 2022 Ballarat Beer Festival is preceded by a degustation dinner on the prior Friday night, with each course matched with beers or a cider, and is hosted by the inimitable Professor Pilsner, Pete Mitcham and Beer Diva, Kirrily Waldhorn.
