10 Things To Keep You Busy at Beer InCider Experience

10. Strong Man/Woman

Outdo your friends and put on a show of real strength at the Strong Person Tester Thingy. Yep, grab the hammer, bang the thingo and test your strength! Probably a good thing to do early in your Beer InCider Experience…

9. Tap & Go

Taking a leaf out of Coachella’s book, Beer InCider has partnered with Square. Similar to this year’s proven successful venture of no beer tickets at Splendour in the Grass, each brewer, food truck and wine bar will only take payment with a Visa or Mastercard debit or credit card with ‘tap & go’ functionality. No pesky tokens or Bobs, no lining up for currency and no hassles. It’s simple.

8. Foodie Heaven

There’s a mouth-watering line up of burgers, ribs, wings, nachos, pizza, pasta, seafood, donuts, brownies, jerky, cheese and heaps more delish food to try. Again, all this amazing food can be purchased with your card using ‘tap & go’.

7. Tim Nelson’s voice

Tim is the lead singer of Cub Sport and his voice is off charts. Following an amazing 2016 in which they hit 24 on triple j’s Hottest 100 for Come On Mess Me Up, Cub Sport are dominating the airwaves again in 2017 with their single, O Lord. If you’re not across Cub Sport yet, you’re in for a treat. This band is incredible.

6. The Garden Bar

The fine folk from 4 Pines Brewing and Brookvale Union are bringing a Garden Bar to Beer InCider this year! Under the famous fig trees at the Brisbane Showgrounds, you’ll be able to pull up a chair and relax. Hot tip: Brookvale Union Ginger Beer is the business and was a crowd-favourite in 2016. This year the team is rumoured to be pouring their sweet sweet Root Beer too!

5. Putt Putt

A firmly established favourite, putt putt makes its highly anticipated debut at our new venue, the Brisbane Showgrounds. Take your friends on and prove once and for all your golfing superiority. With a beer in hand, of course.

4. 300+ brews to sample

There’s more than 50 independent breweries and cider makers pouring more than 300 brews at this year’s event. We kid you not. Whatever your taste, we’re betting you’ll be able to quench your thirst at Beer InCider 2017.

3. Espresso Martini, Prosecco & Wine Bar

Espresso martinis and Prosecco are so hot right now that we’re bringing you a dedicated bar! Imagine blissin’ on a picnic rug listening to some amazing tunes, sipping an Aperol Spritz or espresso martini and picking some cheese off a platter. It’s a beautiful reality and it’s happening this September.

2. Sad Rude Future Brew

There’s nothing sad about Ball Park Music except for the brew they are co-creating with us and Green Beacon. Sad Rude Future Brew will be a juicy resinous-as-heck ale that you can only taste at the festival. Welcome to the future…

1. Our Paddles

It’s not Beer InCider without paddles. Grab one as you come through the gates and taste your way through the festival. Hint: Don’t use on the ping pong tables unless you’re a gun. Yes, ping pong is back again too!

Beer InCider Experience descends upon Brisbane Showgrounds on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 September. Tickets are on sale now HERE with a range of options and packages for either days, starting at a measly $25.
