First birthday celebrations | Bavarian Beerhaus

If their first year has proved anything, it’s that no-one throws a party quite like the Bavarian Beerhaus, and you bet your sweet esel that we’re going to be there for every minute of the action as they complete their first trip around the sun!

Spilling over an entire weekend from Saturday 25-Sunday 26 May, expect the Beerhaus to be packed with live music, entertainment, wacky challenges, and all of the great grub and flowing booze that have earned them a place in all of our hearts.

Spilling across Fortitude Valley’s Happy Boy and Snack Man on Saturday, May 25, Wine Playground invites guests to join the most progressive winemakers in the country for a five-hour celebration of all things vino.

Over 60 wines will be starring in the proceedings, alongside open forums, loads of the delicious eats that Snack Man is loved for, and funky beats courtesy of A Love Supreme. Grab tickets here, but be quick!

Vegan breakfast + mimosas | Hellmouth Diner
