The Good Beer Week Gala Showcase is back!

Coming off of last year’s major sell-out event, Good Beer Week is pleased to announce the return of the annual
two-day Gala Showcase, happening at The Atrium Federation Square on Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd March.

This year, the Gala Showcase will feature 30 local and interstate breweries including Modus Operandi (NSW), Bridge Road Brewers (VIC), Mornington Peninsula Brewery (VIC) and Pirate Life (SA), as well as amazing breweries from across Australia showing off their best and rarest brews!

A curated selection of Melbourne’s best food vendors will keep beer lovers well fed while they explore the beer stalls.

The Gala Showcase also serves as the official launch of the Good Beer Week 2018 program, giving a sneak peek to the ten-day beer festival that runs this winter from 11-20 May 2018.

Tickets will be available at for $50pp plus booking fee from Thursday 15th February. Tickets include 20 x 60ml beer tasting tokens from a choice of more than 200 beers, a $10 food voucher to spend with participating food vendors, and a Good Beer Week souvenir tasting glass RRP $15.

Over two sessions, the Gala Showcase will feature a selection of never-before-tasted brews, free masterclasses,
meet the brewer sessions, and offer attendees the chance to vote for the Bintani People’s Choice Awards for their favourite beer and brewery of the Showcase, which will be announced at the final Friday evening session.

Good Beer Week, the biggest beer festival in the Southern Hemisphere, is an independent and not-for-profit festival that celebrates and promotes the renaissance that craft beer is enjoying globally. Since the festival’s inception in 2011, its central aim is to promote good beer and the community and culture that surround it.

Tickets on sale Thursday 15 February.
