Yarra Valley’s new beer & cider festival is coming to Healesville Sanctuary

This Melbourne Cup long weekend, Healesville Sanctuary is celebrating the Yarra Valley’s rich brewing history with craft beer, food stalls, live music and more!

Set amongst the beautiful grounds and native wildlife of the Sanctuary, Hop Fest is a four-day celebration of the Yarra Valley’s best craft beer brewers and small batch cider makers.

Meet the makers and sample their brews in our two exclusive event spaces, with tastings from Hargreaves Hill, Watt’s River Brewing, Coldstream Brewery, Got Ya Back Beers, Napoleone, St Ronan’s Cider and Cherry Hill Ochards.

Plus, visit the Chandon ‘S’ Sparkling Bar, with special guests Chandon pouring their new take on the classic Champagne cocktail.

Complementing the diverse range of beer and cider is a selection of gourmet-style street food including pulled pork and jackfruit tacos, steamed corn with harissa butter, salt and pepper squid, freshly baked soft pretzels and sticky ribs with hot sauce.

Our keepers will be out and about to say hello with some of your favourite furry, feathered and scaly friends.

Event-goers can also enjoy a great live music lineup of talented local musicians and bands.
