There'll be beer and cider aplenty at the annual Bendigo Craft Beer and Cider Festival.


With brewers including Exit Brewing, Old Wives Ales, Bandicoot Brewing, Alpine Cider and the Colonial Brewing Company providing more than 100 beers and ciders for sampling, you can be sure of being able to taste-test the very best of both beverages from right around the country.

This year's event will be a 'cashless' festival with a digital currency used at all bars, food outlets and merchandise stalls. This innovation will involve the use of 'tap & go' wristbands which can be topped up at on-site currency stands or by roaming top-up currency sellers. Cash will not be accepted by any event vendors. There'll be a refund process available via the festival website between Sunday 25th and Saturday 31st March, where any unused funds can be refunded to your bank account.

Wristbands can be bought at the event using cash or credit card and organisers are confident the process will ease queuing, increase security and generally improve service. Full details of the digital currency process are available on the website www.bendigocraftbeerfestival.com.au
