Bendigo Craft Beer & Cider Festival

I feel it in my fingers. I feel it in my toes. Beer is all around me, and so the feeling grows. The Bendigo Craft Beer & Cider Festival is on its way to town with a truckload of brews from around Australia. And with the popularity of the craft beer world showing no signs of slowing down, this is a fantastic opportunity to see what all the fuss is about.

Some 25 breweries will be represented, each serving up a small number of their specialities. This will include varieties you are familiar with, as well as one­off brews. What is great about events such as this is that you can chat away with the brewers. If you have a question or two, ask away.

Now, for those unfamiliar with such events, the BCBF runs on a token system. This simply means you purchase tokens and use them as currency. This includes food purchases. Yep, there will be plenty of delicious grub there as well. You have a drink in one hand, a bite to eat in the other. Now all you need is music, and Grim Fawkner will be among those providing tunes. Born Tané Emia­Moore, Grim is a multi-
genre performer who describes himself as an “itinerant minstrel”.
