Great Australian Beer Festival Albury
Saturday 19 October 2019
Australia’s biggest alfresco beer and cider garden with over 150 brews to enjoy.
In addition to nationally acclaimed breweries, the unique feature of this festival is the opportunity to taste the beers and ciders from the region. Brewers attend from the farming country of the Riverina, from along the mighty Murray, throughout the valleys and mountains and across Ned Kelly country.
While beer lovers are in for a treat, so are the music lovers! Headlining is Sydney songwriter Ruby Fields, having a huge year with her Dinosaurs track voted number nine on Triple J’s Hottest 100. The Potbelleez, one of Australia’s most in-demand and electrifying live acts is also performing.
While GABF mixes the familiar elements of an outdoor beer festival – the pop up bars, brewing demos, educational sessions, food and live music, it also adds more obscure flourishes. By more, you can expect to find wandering cabaret acts, a piano bar with comedy and beer cabaret, a wacky dance-off; even find yourself judging a best beard competition.
GABF has earned a reputation for stimulating more than taste buds and this year’s festival has all the ingredients for an epic day out. Great Beer, Great Music, Great Memories.
