A laneway celebration about food, beer and barbeque
Brisbane's historic Regatta Hotel ('The Gat' to those in the know) has become known in recent years for its fun festival venue - a loading zone embellished with laneway ambience. You can come and find out what all the fuss is about at its annual celebration of the country, at Regatta Fair, running from Friday 3 August to Sunday 5 August 2018.

This festival is all about food, beer and wine, with an emphasis on local produce, celebrated with food stalls serving simple, hearty fare at the forefront. The menu boasts sure-fire winter winners such as Cheesy Garlic Loaded Cobb Loaf, Rustic Apple Berry Country Crumble, Loaded Pork Idaho Potatoes, Barbeque Street Corn and Charcoal Chicken.

With free entry, guests will purchase food and wine, beer, cider and sparkling through a cash bar. Everything kicks off at 4pm on Friday, with weekend action running from 12 noon until late on both Saturday and Sunday.

The two key highlights of the event are:

Friday August 3: International Beer Day

Celebrate International Beer Day with a wide range of craft beer available out in the Laneway.

Sunday August 5: Battle Of The Barbeque

In an epic and tasty struggle Battle Of The Barbeque features 12 teams sweating it out and vying for the coveted title of Barbeque King for Best Ribs, Best Rump Cap or Best Brisket

You can watch, eat and judge the competition dishes and also enjoy a smorgasbord of BBQ beef and a 3 hour beverage package. This part of the festival runs from 12 noon to 3pm and costs $70 per person (plus booking fee). Proceeds go towards Mates4Mates, the charity that supports injured Defence Force members. Book tickets online here.
