Canberra Craft Beer and Cider Festival

The Canberra Craft Beer & Cider Festival is an annual event which began way back in 2006.

The Canberra Craft Beer & Cider Festival is ideally situated at the historic Mercure Canberra hotel and now incorporates the adjoining street as the festival has grown over the years. It features over 250 craft beer and ciders from a range of exhibitors as well as family entertainment, food and music.

The Hunter Valley Wine Festival

The festival started in 2011 when Dr. Jerry Schwartz had the idea to host a beer and cider festival in the grounds of the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley but he didn’t want it to clash with the local wine festival – when he found out there wasn’t one, he started his own!

This community event is one to remember. With an extensive array of wine, gourmet food, beer and cider on offer, festival goers are spoilt for choice as is always the case with a true Hunter Valley Experience.
