Victoria's Top Drop Event

It's hard to be an ice cold beer and a good feed - somehting you'll get in spades at Victoria's Good Beer Week 2018.
Celebrating its 8th annual event, Good Beer Week unashamedly aims to crown Melbourne the 'Craft Beer Capital of Australia' and make the event the largest and most professional beer festival staged anywhere in the Asia Pacific.
The program is divided into 4 main streams, Foodie, Beer Lover, Beer Geek and Good Times and complemented by Beer School.
The line-up of beers at Good Beer Week will be mind-blowing. After all this is Australia's premier beer event.
Run by the team from Boatrocker Brewing Co, Beer School is this year bigger and better than ever promising something for everyone in 2018. Experts and special guests will cover everything from cheese pairing to barrel ageing and there'll be a series of Masterclasses with international brewers of distinction.
There'll even be a Mother's Day beer tasting.
