If four days of celebrations with the Yarra Valley's best beer brewers and small batch cider makers sounds like heaven to you, Hop Over like a Wallaby to meet the makers, sample one or a few brews of a diverse range of beer and cider. A selection of gourmet-style street food including pulled pork and jackfruit tacos, steamed corn with harissa butter, salt and pepper squid, freshly baked soft pretzels and sticky ribs with hot sauce will also be available. Keepers will be out and about to say hello with furry, feathered and scaly friends, so sit back, relax and enjoy a great live music lineup of local musos and bands.
