For the special invitational event, each brewery will bring a special beer brewed for the festival, and a beloved core range for you to drink fresh off tap. Firestone Walker Brewing have already promised two beers sent fresh from the US for mouths to adore. Each with their own award-winning and certified craft delights, the selection will be huge. From Bridge Rd’s Beechworth Pale Ale, to Hop Nation’s Rattenhund Classic Pilsner, Good Land’s Popsicle Raspberry and Vanilla Pale, and Behemoth Brewing’s Hopportunity New World Style Double IPA, the variety is huge.

Each ticket to the Point Break Brewery Invitational covers your beer for the entire day – that is 20 x 125ml tastes of each beer on offer, poured directly into your own keepsake festival glass. That’s great value!

In addition to the flowing frothies, Blackman’s Brewery will be hopping with live tunes for afternoon entertainment in their courtyard.

If beer is not your choice of drink, Blackman’s Brewery have you covered. They have invited a local winery to provide the whites and reds and Seltzer Bar will be slighting the refreshing fizzy favourites.

Early bird tickets for Point Break Brewery Invitational are on sale now for even better value at $70, with the deal running out 30 June. General admission tickets will kick in from that time for $85.
