5 Things You Should Know About Beer InCider

Aug 08 2018

Beer InCider is all about the Beer. Cider. Music. Ping Pong. But there is so much more to the Beer InCider Experience so here's a quick list of 5 things you should know:

  1. FREE PUBLIC TRANSPORT - In a BIC first, this year's ticket includes free public transport to and from the festival. Simply show your pre-purchased ticket or festival wristband when boarding any Translink bus or Queensland Rail City Network train service. Free travel begins four hours before gates open and concludes four hours after the festival closes, each day. Not available on Airtrain, CityCat, ferry or tram services.
  2. FREE FESTIVAL CUP + PROGRAM - In ANOTHER BIC first, this year we're giving every ticketholder a reusable festival cup for your brew (and to remember us by...oh shucks), as well as a Festival Program. The Program will be your bible with all the set times, brewers, a list of our fave beery haunts in Brisbane and 'The Holy Grail'; the Brew List containing 300+ beers including all 30 of our exclu-brews and where to find them. BYO pen!
  3. MERCH - Love a bit of muso memorabilia? Need a stubby cooler for that ice cold can? Forgot your hat? Check out our Merch Tent run by the legends at Thirsty Merchants and stock up on shirts, hats, bottle openers and more to remember us by.
  4. PING PONG. - It's a bit of a tradition at Beer InCider. From humble beginnings (specifically a single, lonesome table), we're stepping it up this year to a 'Ping Pong Arena'. Multiple tables, stadium seating and perhaps an appearance by Forrest Gump (*unconfirmed), we're so excited to elevate this part of the festival, and see your competitive backhand. Paddle up takes on a whole new meaning.
  5. CASHLESS - Cash is soooooo 2014. We're a COMPLETELY CASHLESS festival which means leave your wads of cash under the mattress and loose change under the couch. Simply bring your debit card, credit card, Android or iPhone (with mobile wallet enabled) and get ready to 'tap & go' powered by Square. Every brewer, food truck, bar and Merch Tent will ONLY take payment with a Visa, Mastercard or Amex debit or credit card or your NFC enabled smart phone. Want a beer? Tap & go. Want a hotdog? Tap & go. Want a hat? Tap & go. Tap, tap, tap.
