Drink up 10 days of beer and cheer at Brewsvegas 2020

What happens at Brewsvegas stays at Brewsvegas…

The seventh annual Brewsvegas is coming to town from March 12, stretching out across 10 days and bringing in over 100 events at 60 of Brisbane’s best sipping spots! The grassroots festival started as a conversation between beer-lovers, and has grown to be a celebration of Brisbane’s beer scene, striving to promote creativity and community over a frothy (or five). 

With a massive range of free events for those who like to dip their toe in the tipple (not literally, that’s gross), Brewsvegas is a fantastic opportunity to learn all there is to learn about Brisbane’s brew scene. A variety of ticketed speciality events will be on offer for all of you beer-aficionados out there, too! 

Tying into what is at the core of Brewsvegas, the events will be split up into four unique categories. “Beer Loves Community” events will see brewers collaborate with those outside of the industry – be it musicians, artists, charities, coffee shops, etc. “Beer Loves Everyone” events are aimed at those beer-novices who are just keen to get amongst it, while “Beer Loves Passion” events are for all the beer tragics out there (guilty) who think they know everything already, but will certainly be surprised by what these Brissy brewers can teach! 

Obviously, the events we are most excited about fall into the “Beer Loves Food” category – with everything from an 11-course beer-matched degustation to many humble burgers washed down with cold ones. 

Brewsvegas 2020 will take place from March 12 through to March 22, with an epic weekend dedicated to the new Brewsvegas brew on Saturday, February 22nd and Sunday, February 23rd. Head riverside to Felon’s Brewing Co. and taste the official Brewsvegas beer, “Hazy Pale Ale” and enjoy live music and good times.
