The High Country Hop

Festivals and Celebrations

27 Mar 2021 to 28 Mar 2021 Annual Event

Join us in beautiful Beechworth as we celebrate the Victorian hop harvest , Australia’s favourite destination beer festival.

Over two days in central Beechworth’s Historic Precinct Reserve, you will taste the freshest beers of the year, discover local winemakers/ distillers and revel in an inspired musical lineup.

The festival centres around the eight brewers of the Victorian high country, with a spotlight on a series of unique ales made using fresh, locally-sourced hops from the 2021 harvest.

They will be joined by two of the countries most exciting new breweries, Range Brewing from Brisbane and Sailor’s Grave from East Gippsland, making for a drinks list worthy of a road trip.

What’s a great drink without equally great music? A diverse set of artists and selectors – Touching on all manner of global influence from Afrobeat, calypso and NOLA big band through to sun-soaked psych-folk, deep funk and country. It’s a wild ride.

A festival food experience should never be grim, so, we’ve brought in the heavy hitters – Hand-picking enough wholesome eats for all tastes – Thai, Japanese, American barbecue and iconic Melbourne food trucks, Beatbox Kitchen and Taco Truck. You won’t go hungry.

Whether you are looking for a weekender, a day trip or a chance to explore your neighbourhood, The High Country Hop will provide you with a journey to remember.
