There will be a series of interactive masterclasses hosted by industry experts with beer lovers having the opportunity to meet and mingle with the brains behind the brands. There will be constant live entertainment including beer cabaret and carnival DJs together with a selection of fine food trucks and heaps of BBQs with a focus on slow cooked meats.
