Third Annual Beer Fest

Australia’s premier festival of craft beers and ciders returns to the Geelong Racecourse on Saturday 21st February next year. Brewers and beer lovers from all over Australia are again expected to descend upon the city to join with locals in tasting over 200 of the finest craft beers and ciders available. Brewer spots have already been snapped up with the very best boutique brewers from every state in Australia attending. Festival organisers are planning big changes to cater for the increase in visitors as word has spread that Geelong’s Great Australian Beer Festival is a ‘must attend’. GABF 2015 will use more space around the recently upgraded grounds.
There is going to be more visual and performing arts together with a third stage added featuring comedy, cabaret and peculiar live acts. A cider garden will overlook the track together with an international beer selection offering tastings from around the world. The food offering will include more restaurants added to the Tastes of the Region section together with a variety of renowned food trucks serving a range of gourmet & international foods. Organisers are also encouraging people to come along dressed as a superhero or adopt a colourful Calypso/Hawaiian theme. There will be a best sombrero and group award with workplaces being challenged to have employees dress up and be in the running for the GABF ‘Best Dressed Org Award’ and $1000 first prize donated to a charity of their choice.
Stay tuned for the exciting entertainment line-up to be announced shortly. Visit for more information.
