The mega beer fest is back for another foamy frolic
The GABS Beer, Cider and Food Fest, presented by Dan Murphy's, was dreamt up by the Local Taphouse owners Steve Jeffares and Guy Greenstone over a drink in 2011. Now, the beer and cider extravaganza is back for another year at Carlton's Royal Exhibition Building. In addition to the beer stalls from local and international brewers, the SpecTAPular beer festival will also feature over 170 different festival beers on tap – beers brewed exclusively for the festival.
The venue will be packed with shipping containers serving up delicious brews and ales, as well as expert brewers to chat to. There will also be plenty of festival entertainment (think acrobats, a ferris wheel and roving performers) and beer-friendly street food to feast upon. If you're down for some mini golf, Holey Moley will also be down for a putt.
