A salute to the town’s strong brewing traditions.
Thirty-four brewers will serve more than 150 craft brews this summer at the Ballarat Beer Festival on Lake Wendouree.

The line-up of large and emerging brewers features Bells Beach Brewing, Daylesford Brewing Co., Fury and Son Brewing Company, Hawkers, Hop Nation, Moon Dog Craft Brewery, Red Duck, Stomping Ground Brewing Co. and Young Henrys.

For non-beer lovers there will be cocktails and wine.

Food options include stalls from Farang Thai BBQ, Just Chips Victoria, Round The Way Bagels, The Forge Pizzeria and Slinky Spudz.

Live entertainment will come from The VANNS, Mast Gully Fellers, Hana and Jessie-Lee April, Michael Meeking, and Ballarat’s own Butterfunked.

Festival-goers can also participate in beer trivia and musical bingo games.

From 11am to 9pm.
