Bendigo On The Hop is back again in 2016
Bendigo On The Hop, Australia's best winter craft beer festival, returns on Saturday 20th August 2016 with a fantastic line-up of new venues and Australia's best breweries to taste and discover.

From 11am to 6pm, you will have the chance to explore some of the finest pubs in historic Bendigo (including a pop up HUB PUB for the first time featuring The Cambrian Hotel) and sample 28 celebrated Australian breweries!

Come along with your mates for a great day out and meet the friendly brewers, who'll be offering the most tempting taste sensations and quirky flavours for your delectation.

Whether you inhale your beer, swill, slurp or simply soak it up, you will want to hop in with the crowd and travel together from one venue to the next, tasting and comparing each brewers' best offerings.

Adding to the festive atmosphere will be lots of live music by talented musicians and the opportunity to meet and mingle with people who are just as passionate about craft beer as you are!

The equation is pretty simple: 10 venues - 56 beers - 28 breweries, plus entertainment. That means each brewery will showcase a beer that you know and a rare or unique beer exclusive to Bendigo On The Hop.

The showcased breweries are:

Bridge Road Brewers

40 Acres Brewing

Feral Brewing Company

Castlemaine Brewing Co

Red Duck Beer

Pirate Life

Kaiju Beer
