The Beer Incider Experience

150 different beers. Sound like one hell of a weekend to you? Well then you’re in luck because that’s just what you’ll find at the Beer InCider Experience come September 16 and 17. Yep, grab your beer paddles, because the Beer InCider Experience is returning to Albion Park Raceway, bigger and better than ever before. Get ready to raise a glass of your favourite craft brew, stuff your face with food truck feeds and bless your ears with the sweet sounds of live bands across Friday 16 and Saturday 17 September. Over two days, you’ll be able to sip your way through the best brews of over 30 independent breweries from Australia and beyond, with 150 beers and ciders to try. The beer-y good line up is stacked with favourites, and even some award-winning brewers, including Newstead Brewing Co, Stone & Wood, 4 Pines, Green Beacon Brewing, and Pirate Life. With all the great brews on offer, you’re going to need some good food to line your stomach with. Thankfully, there’ll be a whole bunch of gourmet food trucks from around town providing delicious eats to go with your brew, including Micasa Food Truck, Rolls Pho Mi, That BBQ JointKing Of The WingsFiery DeliPizzantica, and The Frying Piggy, just to name a few. beer incider 2 This year, there’ll even be a few bars for the non-beer drinkers, with cocktails and sparkling wine to pair with cheese platters, so you can bring everyone in your friend group, not just the beer lovers. Once you have an ice cold drink in one hand and a pile of drinking food in the other, take a seat and be serenaded into a food coma by headline music acts Josh Pyke and Holy Holy, and other local artists like Sinead Burgess, Mid Ayr and The Strums. This year, you can leave your coins at home, because Beer InCider has a brand new Currency Card to solve any pesky cash issues. Once inside the festival, you’ll purchase a card, load it up via cash or EFTPOS and then spend to your heart’s content. It’s as easy as drinking beer! A two-day pass is $30, or $25 if you gather four or more of your mates. To purchase tickets and find out more about the event, head to the Beer InCider website. Oh September, we wish you were beer here already. Words by Georgia Tyler
