Top 10 things to do at Beer InCider 2017

Aug 16 2017

THE Beer InCider Experience is making its first appearance at the Brisbane Showgrounds on 22 & 23 September 2017 with more than 300 beers & ciders, 53 breweries & cideries, 18 food trucks, 9 bands and more you’re going to need two days to explore them all.

Without further ado we give you the top 10 things to do at Beer InCider 2017.

10. Strong Man/Woman
Outdo your friends and put on a show of real strength at our Strong Person Tester Thingy. Yep, grab the hammer, bang the thingo and test your strength! Probably a good thing to do early in your Beer InCider Experience…

9. Tap & Go
We’ve taken a leaf out of Coachella’s book and have partnered with Square. Each brewer, food truck and wine bar will only take payment with a Visa or Mastercard debit or credit card with 'tap & go' functionality. No pesky tokens or Bobs, no lining up for currency and no hassles. It’s simples.

8. Foodie Heaven
We’ve got a mouth-watering line up of burgers, ribs, wings, nachos, pizza, pasta, seafood, donuts, brownies, jerky, cheese and heaps more delish food to try. Again, all this amazing food can be purchased with your card using 'tap & go'.

7. Tim Nelson’s voice
Tim is the lead singer of Cub Sport and his voice is off charts. Following an amazing 2016 in which they hit 24 on Triple J's Hottest 100 for Come On Mess Me Up, Cub Sport are dominating the airwaves again in 2017 with their single O Lord. If you're not across Cub Sport yet, you're in for a treat. This band is incredible.

6. The Garden Bar
The fine folk from 4 Pines Brewing and Brookvale Union are bringing a Garden Bar to Beer InCider this year! Under the famous fig trees at the Brisbane Showgrounds, you’ll be able to pull up a chair and relax. Hot tip: Brookvale Union Ginger Beer is the business and was a crowd-favourite in 2016. This year the team is rumoured to be pouring their sweet sweet Root Beer too!

5. Putt Putt
A firmly established favourite, putt putt makes its highly anticipated debut at our new venue, the Brisbane Showgrounds. Take your friends on and prove once and for all your golfing superiority. With a beer in hand, of course.

4. 300+ brews to sample
We've got more than 50 independent breweries and cider makers pouring more than 300 brews at this year’s event. We kid you not. Whatever your taste, we’re betting you’ll be able to quench your thirst at Beer InCider 2017.

3. Espresso Martini, Prosecco & Wine Bar
Espresso martinis and Prosecco are so hot right now that we're bringing you a dedicated bar! Imagine blissin’ on a picnic rug listening to some amazing tunes, sipping an passionfruit Caprioska or espresso martini and picking some cheese off a platter. It's a beautiful reality and it's happening this September.

2. Sad Rude Future Brew
There’s nothing sad about Ball Park Music except for the brew they are co-creating with us and Green Beacon. Sad Rude Future Brew will be a juicy resinous-as-heck ale that you can only taste at the festival. Welcome to the future…

1. Our Paddles
It’s not Beer InCider without our paddles. Grab one as you come through the gates and taste your way through the festival. Hint: Don’t use on the ping pong tables unless you’re a gun. Yes - ping pong is back again too!
