Great beer, great people, great day!

Renowned as Australia’s most colourful and diverse beer festival, GABF returns on January 15th, 2022 to the iconic Johnstone Park in Geelong’s CBD. To ensure safe delivery of the event and an abundance of space to sample and socialise, the event will be delivered across 2 sessions – 11am to 4pm and 5pm to 10pm.

GABF Geelong will showcase the burgeoning local craft beer scene with over 15 local brewers and producers along with recognised brands from all over the country. In addition local distilleries and unique producers will be serving up Gins, cocktails, Whiskey’s, Seltzers, wines and even alcoholic Kombucha!

GABF 2022 will feature live music, with Art vs Science headlining the evening session and The Badloves playing the day session. See entertainment page for more detail.

If that wasn’t enough to tempt you, add in beer masterclasses, 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.
