Great beer, great people, great day!

From the moment one steps into this beer lover’s paradise, they’re compelled to explore, to wander through pop up bars, and lounge in terraced gardens while savouring their way through 100s of hand-crafted beers and ciders.

Brewers attend from all over the country and there’s an international beer hall with beers from around the world available to taste. GABF showcases hundreds of different brews with a mind-boggling variety of styles sure to please even the fussiest hop-heads.

GABF 2018 will feature live music across 3 stages, featuring the Settlement, Ukulele Death Squad, Skyscraper Stan and 18 other live acts, keg rolling, quirky costume races, piano bar and a sassy cocktail corner offering a delectable range of beer cocktails.

If that wasn’t enough to tempt you, add in food & beer matching seminars, gourmet food producers plating up a tasty selection of meals and snacks to keep you fueled throughout the day and you’ll find everything you could possibly need for an epic summer’s day out.
