2022 Craft Beer & Cider Festival Sunshine Coast is back for its 5th year! We bring a taste of some of Australia’s most unobtainable craft beers paired amongst locally sourced produce in the heart of the Sunshine Coast. The Sunshine Coast’s ‘exbeerience’ of all things Craft Beer & Cider brings to you over 100 + brews & LIVE MUSIC.

With brewers and cideries handpicked after long yarns and vigorous tasting sessions, the yearly curated event is proud to bring a unique flavour showcase to Coast dwellers paired with local produce, live music, and really great craft beer, cider, cocktails, wine and bubbles.

Craft Beer is all about finding brews that have something different about them. Tasting people’s ideas through their craft, so come and taste them all at our expo to find the brew you LOVE. Our festival is a true celebration of craft beer and cider’s creativity and diversity. Beer enthusiasts, music enthusiasts and food enthusiasts will love what this festival will bring.

The festival is All Ages with free entry for children under 12 and under 18s charged $6 for entry with a Wonder ride ticket, noting all minors need to be accompanied by a Responsible Adult. Some of the added attractions we can offer as a result of our new home include dodgem cars, jumping castles, photo’s booths and more at NightQuarter.

With the prior four events proving to be back-to-back successes, is the Sunshine Coast’s premier beer festival at the NightQuarter.  Nightquarter with its innovative eats, immersive experiences, live music, experiential artists and local culture… Next year’s event will be an ever-evolving festival of flavour and sound in a shipping container playground in Birtinya, Sunshine Coast.

The Sunshine Coast has been described as Australia’s Craft Beer Capital, rich in diversity, is brimming with the best that Australia has to offer – for real.

Pristine beaches sit alongside subtropical rainforests and majestic mountains, interspersed with villages steeped in history. Frolic at the beach in the morning and enjoy the afternoon in the lush hinterland, just a 45-minute easy drive away. Savour the fresh and bountiful local produce through a paddock to plate and trawler to table dining experience.
