Canberra Craft Beer & Cider Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

16 Mar 2019

The 12th annual Canberra Craft Beer & Cider Festival will feature close to 200 beers and ciders for tasting from all over Australia.

This family-friendly event featuring live bands, food, entertainment and a wide range of kids’ activities.

The Festival is ideal for all beer and cider enthusiasts – from those who just love tasting such a diverse and premium selection of ales and ciders to budding craft brewers. Visitors will be able to take part in beer/cider food matching sessions, hear guest speakers, and meet the brewers.

Canberra’s rapidly emerging brewing scene is reflected in the presence of BentSpoke Brewing Co, Capital Brewing Co, Jono’s Jerky and others, while interstate exhibitors include many of Australia’s most renowned breweries such as Sydney Brewery, Pirate Life, Stone Dog Meadery, Young Henrys, Mountain Goat Beer, Goose Island Brewery and James Squire. Specialist cideries such as 3 Sons Cider, Nightingale Bros Alpine Cider and Willie Smith’s Cider will exhibit their range of ciders.
