Good Beer Week 2015 / 16th – 24th May 2015

For those of you who are Melbourne based, it is almost impossible not to have noticed that Good Beer Week is fast approaching. Even I, whose weekend social life rarely extends beyond cheering on Under 10’s soccer & footy and Under 11’s footy on some faraway windblown field, wrapped up in layer upon layer, have seen plenty of Good Beer Week posters, programs, heck even trams promoting the week long (actually 9 days) good beer festivities which are all centred around celebrating all that is great about beer in Australia.

In it’s 5th year, the incredibly diverse festival program ensures that beer novices right through to beer gurus will have plenty of choice to emerge themselves into the world of Good Beer. Classy restaurants, local pubs, even a prison and children’s farm feature as host venues, with each event thoughtfully considered and created to ensure a positive and fun beer experience is had by all. Some events are ticketed whilst others are free to drop in, there are lunchtime events for those who actually still have to working during Good Beer Week, and plenty of evening events as well.

Good Beer Week also features theĀ  Australian International Beer Awards (I start judging tomorrow!), the Australian Craft Brewers Conference and the Great Australian Beer SpecTAPular (GABS). I will be hosting a series of Craft Beer Adventure seminars during GABS, which will feature beer & food pairings, cooking with beer seminars and my favourites of course, my beer & music pairing seminar and my blindfolded seminar! Make sure you follow BeerStyle on Instagram as we will be giving away great beer & fashion prizes all week.

The 2015 festival runs from May 16 to 24, with the Official Program launched on March 13 at the Good Beer Week Gala Showcase. The Opening Party is at the Festival Hub, Beer DeLuxe in Fed Square. So much good beer, so little time!
