Australian Drinks Festival

16 July, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 17 July, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

The Australian Drinks Festival (http://australiandrinksfestival.com.au/) is a unique event combining pop-up bars, cocktails and FREE sampling of premium beers, wines and spirits.

In addition, there’s great food and entertainment; brewers, distillers and winemakers are on hand to answer your questions; and some of the best bartenders in the country will mix up drinks for you. Plus an unrivaled line-up of guest speakers will bring the world of fine liquor to life with around 40 FREE demonstrations and seminars.

So come and discover your new favourite tipple, learn how to mix up a classic cocktail or unwind with a glass of wine with your friends.

We have a ton of fun planned for you such as:

The Boutique Market – Hundreds of premium wines, beers, spirits and mixers will be available for you to sample for free inside the stunning Royal Exhibition Building. Find something you really like? Buy a bottle to take home with you. You’ll also find great food and coffee here.

Beer & Cider Zone – A showcase of craft and premium beers and ciders, with brewers on hand to talk you through their brews. Taste your way through a range or take some time out from the show and relax with a cold one. Special tutored tastings and beer talks will be a feature of the show.

The Wine Village – Explore the wonderful world of wine at Top Shelf. Compare varietals, discover a new favourite brand, enjoy a glass with your friends. Look out too for the wine-related talks and tastings in the Tasting Den and The Lounge.

Food Glorious Food – Top-notch drinks should always be paired with top-notch food – and there’ll be plenty of tasty treats available at the show from the likes of Huxtaburger, Meatmother, Mammavan, Frencheese and Paco y Lola.
