What is Beer InCider?

May 31 2018

Beer. Cider. Music. Ping Pong.

Beer InCider is an experience that brings together beer, cider, music, art, food and most importantly fun. Every part of the event is hand picked to resonate with our audience. The beer and cider is made by independently owned breweries and cideries, the musicians are among Australian's favourite acts, the performance and street artists are selected on how much they will surprise and delight and the food is top notch nosh. We're a beer festival and a music festival. And we're bloody proud to be both.

The breweries and cideries we choose to work with are Australia's finest. We only work with independently owned producers. It's a choice we've made to support local people making beer and cider for their communities. We encourage our audience to drink tasters throughout the Festival so that you can sample widely and discover new favourites.

In previous years we've hosted music legends The Smith Street Band, The Jungle Giants, Press Club, Bad//Dreems, Alice Ivy, Mallrat, Tired Lion, Ball Park Music, City Calm Down, Cub Sport, Butterfingers, Josh Pyke, Holy Holy, British India and Busby Marou, plus talented local acts The Strums, Calais, The Glorious North, Skipping Girl Vinegar, All Our Exes Live in Texas, Neighbour, Hazlett, The Mae Trio, West Texas Crude, The Hard Aches and Sinead Burgess to name a few. Because really, what's better than listening to your fave band with your mates and a cold brew in hand?

And finally, what's a festival without great food? Every festival we love to bring a range of fan favourite food trucks together so everyone can match the perfect burger/pizza/taco to whatever they're drinking. We've had beer-infused bakery goods, cheese platters, raclette, charcuterie cones, hot nuts, organic donuts, and even beer gelato.

So, grab your mates, grab your tickets and head to Brisbane Showgrounds on Saturday 9 March 2019 OR Melbourne Showgrounds on Saturday 2 March 2019.

Beer InCider is a tasting festival not a beer swilling event. We encourage all of our patrons to grab a famous Beer InCider paddle and get tasting! Drink responsibly, drink less, drink better.
