The Great Australian Beer Festival returns to Geelong

The Great Australian Beer Festival (GABF) and beer lover’s paradise returns to Geelong Racecourse on Saturday February 16 and we can’t think of a better way to spend a summer day in the new year.
With hundreds of delicious craft beers and ciders from all over the country, a great lineup of live music including Great Gable, Grand Wazoo, Skyscraper Stan & The Commission Flats, Mick Thomas & The Roving Commission, The Settlement, and several other live acts, as well as a designated Piano Bar stage, smoking slow-cooked meats throughout, and even beer cocktails and coffee martinis, you’ll find everything you could possibly need for an epic summer’s day out.
They’ve even made some groovy changes for 2019 that we are loving with bigger glasses and beer in cans! This means there will be more time to chat with your friends and less time in any queues but they still offer the tastes in 80ml servings so you can try many of the beers on offer.
They’ll also have their Wacky races with some new ways to win some great prizes and there will be a number of new and exciting games to challenge your mates or win tokens from GABF!
GABF overflows with fun, from the moment you set hands on your tasting glass, ‘til the time you’re tipping back your last beer of the day! Celebrate and party with your community while sampling hundreds of new brews from all over Australia. Before you know it, you’ll be jamming along with the live music, snacking on delicious food, learning a thing or two at the free masterclasses and competing in carnival games of chance.
Early bird tickets are on sale now for $50 which includes entry, 10 tasting tokens & tasting cup.
