Some of the region’s finest craft beer will be on show at a Milton festival in October.
With tickets to the second annual South Coast Craft Beer Festival selling fast, the event is shaping up to be a success.
Organiser Darren Clear said people from near and far were expected to attend the event.
“We have three different brewers lined up for the day, including Cupitt Craft Brewers and Camel Rock Brewery from Wallaga Lake,” he said.
“We are hoping for another good turn-up this year. We attracted people from out of town last year.
“With only 300 tickets on sale, people will enjoy a friendly vibe where they can chat to local brewers, enjoy tasty comfort food, chill out to some local performers and, of course, enjoy locally produced beer.”
This year’s event will have a new addition, a home brew competition. The winner will recieve a day at Cupitt Craft Brewers learning the tricks of the trade.
“We are also after some people to taste the home brews on the day, so we can give away a people’s choice award,” Mr Clear said.
“We have had a few people interested in the competition already. We are hoping to have several entrants. Cupitts actually came up with the idea, and put up the prize.”
Each entrant can bring a maximum of three different beers, and has to buy a ticket to the event. Anyone interested can contact the festival committee via their Facebook page – South Coast Craft Beer Festival.
Paella and kranskies will be on sale to appease appetites, as well as local meat. Meanwhile, local bands Tiny Empire and Scotty and Tom will keep people entertained at the event.
Run by Apex Ulladulla, the event will raise funds for the community organisation to put towards local projects. On top of this, for every ticket sold, OzHarvest will donate one meal to someone in need.
The festival will be held at the Milton Showground from 3pm to 10pm on October 20.
Early bird tickets are $35 include three beer tasters, or two wines. Camping is available at the Showground for $20. To purchase tickets, visit https://events.humanitix.net/south-coast-beer-festival
