Beer InCider Brisbane 2019 | Gourmand & Gourmet

You can’t sip with us: Beer InCider’s exclusive brew lineup

Fear not, beer fiends - the year hasn’t flown by THAT fast.

Brisbane’s premier craft brew festival Beer InCider Experience has rolled into town six months early, hitting Brisbane Showgrounds on Saturday March 9 for one hoppy day (to say the least).  

The hallowed day where Aussie artists rock the stage while some downright fabulous craft breweries rock our tastebuds, Beer InCider 2019 promises fun by the keg-full, and then some.

Bigger and bitter: this year’s event welcomes more than 40 breweries into the haze, along with seven cideries, a prosecco bar, beer cocktails and gourmet fare from the likes of Chu The Phat, Stokebar Q (the best dang prawn sanga you’ll ever get your mouth around), Gnocchi Gnocchi Brothers and Netherworld’s Hellmouth Diner.  

More importantly, it showcases a host of exclusive and limited edition brews that you won’t find anywhere else.

Meet the frothy boys you need to make a beer-line for: this festival is bringing more good times than happy-weeping to DMAs croon “Believe”.


Sour and spice and all things nice

Pretty in Pint. Light, bright and ready to set your insta feed on fire, local heroes Green Beacon are debuting the Blush Rosé Sour. Expect hints of wild hibiscus, tart berries and white wine – this pink-hued brew might be the belle of the ball.

We’ve found our Miami vice. The GC’s Lost Palms Brewing will be pouring key lime pie flavoured Aunt Suzy’s Sour NEIPA.

Something for Kate, something for us. This year’s musical collab beer comes from Mornington Peninsula Brewery. The Miracle Cure Session Rye IPA  promises fruity, piney, spicy melon flavours – while their other Beer InCider exclusive, the Galaxy Pash Dry-Hopped Passion sounds like a sci-fi make out sesh we’ll swipe right for.

Dude, sweet

You’re not you when you’re hungry – so grab a taster of the Peanut Butter Cream Ale from Milton’s Aether Brewing.

For their first Beer InCider appearance, newcomers Sea Legs Brewing Co will introduce the Hazy IPL NEIPA. At a fun 7.2%, it’s sure to make your night a little hazy too. Their neighbour across the brown snake, Felons, is starting on a sour note with the extremely limited Blueberry Gose tapping at precisely 5pm. Set your watches, kids.

Tall, dark and handsome, Clare Valley Brewing Co is bringing the goods with a Whisky Stout (7.5%) that’ll put a little extra hair on your chest.

If it says salad it’s healthy and we’ll take three. We’ll be making friends with The Welder’s Dog’s Fruit Salad NEIPA before tackling the Mango Mac Pale Ale from Burleigh Brewing – proving Queensland is beautiful one day, fruity the next.
