Australia's hop-tastic Good Beer Week will be returning to Melbourne for its fifth year from 16 to 24 May 2015. During the festivities, there will be close to 250 events scattered across 180 venues throughout Melbourne and regional Victoria, all celebrating one of the oldest brews in the world.

As a little taster in the lead up to the event, there will be a selection of pre-festival activities to enjoy such as the Good Beer Week Hop Garden and Good Beer College and the Good Beer Week Gala Showcase .

The Hop Garden is a FREE event taking place at 2015's Festival Hub; Beer DeLuxe at Federation Square. Sponsored by the City of Melbourne, the Hop Garden will offer an insight into how hops help add all the good stuff we recognise in different beers; flavour, aroma and bitterness.



There will be FREE masterclasses and education sessions open to the public for craft beer novices and beer experts alike, in the Good Beer College classroom on the weekends in late February and early March.

This is an opportunity to sample brews presented with tasting notes, and understand the journey hops take to become the finished beer product we enjoy. The Hop Garden crew will be pouring a selection of craft brews including those from Boatrocker (Australia), Ferel Brewing (USA), Mountain Goat (New Zealand) and Holgate (European Hops).

The 'Learn stuff about beer' Masterclasses will run in two segments on weekend dates; 28 February and 1 March, then 7 and 8 March. Hops 101 will run from 12:30pm to 1:20pm, and 'How beer is made will run from 2:00pm to 3:00pm. The launch of the Hop Garden will take place from 6pm on 27 February at Beer Deluxe.

The full program and tickets for this year's Good Beer Week in May will be released on 13 March here .
