It’s the weekend of your beer (and cider)-drinking, food-scoffing, rocking-out dreams: two whole days devoted to celebrating our city’s love for a good brew and delicious food to match, against a backdrop of one of the best live music lineups around.
Not satisfied with just taking over an autumn weekend with their killer lineup of independent breweries and homegrown musical acts this year, the Beer InCider Experience is back for round two in 2019, taking over the Brisbane Showgrounds on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 September. But just in case you were thinking you didn’t need to double down on your quota of beer and music fests for the year, check out what’s in store for the spring iteration of the beloved festival.
First up, there’s the music, with a fully loaded bill that includes the likes of Hockey Dad, Thundamentals, Jesswar, Briggs, Ruby Fields, Dear Seattle and Voiid providing the perfect soundtrack for downing a few ice cold bevvies. Then, there’s the food, with some of Brisbane’s best food trucks queueing up to line your stomach with eats. The full foodie list is yet to be confirmed, but we’re expecting plenty of tasty noms that you can eat with one hand while you keep a tight hold on your beer with the other.
Finally, there’s the boozy offerings we’re all really there for—the beer. We’re talking hundreds of beer and ciders from over 50 independent breweries all over Australia. Grab yourself a paddle on your way in and fill ‘er up with 100ml tasters, or sip on pots or cans of each brew and have a yarn to the brewers while you’re at it. A few hundred beers might sound like a lot to work your way through, and we wouldn’t recommend trying them all, but you might at least find a new favourite. And if frothies aren’t your jam, well there might just be a drink or two for you anyway.
Plus, because, you know, all of the above isn’t enough, the Beer InCider legends have gone and added all kinds of awesome extras to take in as you drink, eat and dance your way around the Showgrounds, like ping pong tournaments, handball battles, beery talks at the brewer’s stage and heaps more.
Tickets are on sale now for the event here, and this year tickets even include a re-usable cup for all that beer drinking you’re going to do—how’s that for a feel-good bonus?
