The Gold Coast Is Getting A Beer And Cider Festival!

We’ve got some beery good news for hops lovers of the Gold Coast.

And that should cover just about all of you (we pity those who never developed a palate for the amber liquid gold).

Yep, step aside for a moment GABS, ‘cause the Gold Coast is moving on up in the craft beer (and cider) world with the announcement we’re getting our very own one-day festival celebrating all things craft beer… and cider!

While we’re not pretending to have all the details, we reckon this is certainly enough of a teaser to get excited, with the official launch of the Crafted beer and cider festival event website yesterday.

We can reveal a date has been set for Saturday, November 4 with a sunny beachfront location already secured at Broadbeach’s Pratten Park.

Expect pop-up bars where you can wander, sample brews, and geek out over hops directly with a variety of yet-to-be-named brewsters. We’re hedging our bets that all of your fave local breweries will throw their support behind it, as well as others from further afield.

Together with the brews, Crafted has promised chews (AKA food trucks galore), some pretty sweet live music performances, and a general all ‘round feel-good environment that’s certain to embody all the things we love most about the Gold Coast—rad people!

For now, you can condition your beer-swigging arm and liver at our various craft beer bars and breweries, in preparation for when the Crafted festival hits our shores early November. And don’t worry, the fact that the year is already a quarter over (WTAF?) means it’ll be here before you know it.

Jump onto their Insta and give them a follow, to keep updated as details are announced.

Cheers for beers (and cider)!


Where: Pratten Park, Broadbeach
When: Saturday, November 4
Tickets: Deets and pricing to be released closer to the event
