Juicy Beer Festival happening at The Fortitude Music Hall on Saturday 9th July.

Raise those glasses! Today, the team behind iconic Brisbane beer company Range Brewing announce the inaugural Juicy Beer Festival, at The Fortitude Music Hall on Saturday 9th July. 

Juicy Beer Festival is a brand new concept, created by beer brewers for beer lovers. Shaping up to be one of the largest celebrations of independent brewers in Australia, Gerard Martin and Matt McIver at Range Brewing are the masterminds behind this all-inclusive beer tasting extravaganza. The first-ever beer festival hosted at The Fortitude Music Hall, Juicy Beer Festival’s two, four-hour sessions will feature a highly curated roster of independent brewers serving up over 40 specialty brews, while SampologyWinston Surfshirt and the who’s who of local DJs step behind the decks.

One ticket. One glass. Countless brews. It’s the beauty of Juicy Beer Festival’s all inclusive design. Just collect the exclusive Juicy tasting glass and get sipping. With no payments to process, cash to carry or mates to shout, the most difficult part of the day will be deciding which brew to try next.

The hop heroes over at Range Brewing have rolled out the red carpet for the best independent brewers from Australia and New Zealand. As well as shining a spotlight on countless hyper-local brewers, plenty of faves will be loading up their kegs and making the trip up North including New South Wales’ Wildflower and Victoria’s Banks Brewery. Not just a tasting tour of Australia’s best ales, Juicy Beer Festival also welcomes New Zealand pals including Wellington wonders, Garage Project.

All this beer has to wash something down…which is why Juicy Beer Festival has lined up an equally impressive roster of culinary delights. Whether it’s the Oyster & Stout bar tucked away at The Outpost upstairs or one of the exclusive pop-up stalls from some of Brisbane’s favourite restaurants, there’s a bite to please any palette.

A treat for the earbuds as much as the tastebuds, Juicy Festival welcomes some of the hottest Aussie acts to set the sonic vibe. Spinning their unique, genre blending sound, R&B-Soul Icons, Winston Surfshirt, will get the party started as they close out Juicy’s evening session. Hometown heavyweight, Sampology, will also be making the crowd ‘Smile’, as he serves up sizzling sets for crowds at both the afternoon and evening sessions.

Range Brewing’s Matt McIver is stoked to be able to shine a spotlight on the incredible Australian and New Zealand independent brewers. “We can’t wait to bring all our fellow independent brewers together! For a lot of us, it’s been a while between drinks – so we are counting down the days til we can finally get together and share some quality brews.”

Gerard Martin shares a similar excitement, explaining, “Matt and I experienced the all-inclusive beer festival model while we were travelling overseas and we knew we had to bring the concept home to Brissie. To also be the first Beer Festival held at the beautiful Fortitude Music Hall? It’s a beer lover’s dream.

It’s time to experience a new type of beer festival.

Tickets to Juicy Beer Festival are on sale Thursday 14 April 9am AEST.
