Why do you charge entry fees?
While we would to offer the Brewers Feast experience for free, festivals have a range of costs, whether it’s hiring the venue, contracting security, paying bands and artists for performances or feeding the volunteers.
We also understand the question “why would I pay $X when I could go to X bar or X craft brew bar and get 3 beers for that price”. It’s true, you could go to the local, sit in the usual spot and drink the same beers that are always on tap, just like you could save $20 by watching a movie at home or save $100’s by watching the concert on your TV but that’s not living the experience is it? See Brewers Feast is about exploring more than the ‘norm’, it’s about sampling, sipping and savouring standard, rare and festival beers with great friends at one of Melbourne’s most scenic locations.

Can I bring my own food and drink?
Absolutely, make yourself comfortable! You can bring picnic rugs and deck chairs. Please be mindful of placement though and settle in away from crowd routes… we want everyone to be able to taste any beer they fancy!
Can I bring my own seating?
What if it is going to be a wet day?
We’re here for beers sunshine or rain! If it’s a wet day we recommend bringing a rain jacket for protection as you hop between the brewers and large umbrellas.
All brewers have marquees which offer some protection from the rain. We also have a number of market style umbrellas to huddle under.
In the case of rain we say embrace the experience and protect that beer from the rain! Knowing Melbourne’s weather it’ll be sunny in about 30 minutes, an hour or two at most!
