At Time Out, we believe that bigger is better when it comes to craft beer, and it doesn’t get much bigger than a whole week of celebration.
In just six years, Good Beer Week has grown into a festival of 270 events across Melbourne and Victoria that attracts 50,000 attendees from Australia and overseas.
If you’re a lover of beer, here is what is up for grabs from the program for ten lucky subscribers:
