life is just a little better after a couple of beers

participating breweries

We know that you are thirsty and are preparing yourself for this fun filled occasion, so we spend most of our year sampling and visiting breweries across SA to bring you the best of whats around. By saying that, we mean rare, we mean specially brewed for the show and we mean fresh from the tap!

 

One of our greatest joys is making sure that you get to meet the actual brewer themselves at the show, at their stand live and in the flesh.

 

Take a look at the of the breweries to be announced for 2020. We have posted pics of the team or brewer where we can, this way you can get to know them all a little better over the festival weekend.
