Now here’s something to froth over…

Over three yeasty days in September, Perth’s Claremont Showgrounds will be transforming once again to welcome the return of Western Australia’s largest (and favourite) beer event. Grab your mates and get ready to clink your glasses as the Perth Craft Beer Festival is back again but this time, bigger and better than ever.

Starting on Friday 04 and pouring up until Sunday 06 September, Perth’s craft beer lovers can finally flock to an all beer praising event once more.

Forget Zoom and those awkwardly planned lonely lockdown drinks, the Perth Craft Beer Festival is calling all Perthlings to come on down and enjoy the real-life fun in one of Perth’s biggest beer halls, the many undercover areas and not to forget the handful of fire pits for you to sit around.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a beer festival without, yes you guessed it, beer. So naturally Perth Craft Beer Festival organisers have teamed up with an impressive range of Australian breweries and cideries to pour up exactly what they do best: beer.

With 50 of Australia’s favourite beer makers on site, Perthlings will be able to sip their way through some of the industry’s acclaimed producers including Beer Farm, Rocky Ridge and Boston Brewing Co to name a few. And to top up your thirst with some selection, if you’d rather try something different, there will also be a range of wines and cocktails available.

Your Perth Craft Beer Festival frivolties wouldn’t be complete without appeasing your hunger and guests can also expect a range of pop-up local food truck favourites to tuck into. Whether that be smoked meats, American BBQ, burgers, sliders as well as vegetarian- and vegan-friendly options; regardless, we can all agree that nothing pairs better than a hearty meal paired with your new favourite beer.

To help froth up your day just that little bit more, Perth Craft Beer Festival will also be home to a range of carnival rides and games, DJs, giant beer pong, a silent disco and live music, plenty of activities for the whole family and the highlight of the event, the Best Dad Bot Wet T-Shirt Competition.

Starting off the three day beer festivity will be the over 18s F**k Yeah Friday from 4 – 11:30pm. Next, on Saturday guests will be able to choose from two sessions – Saturday Family Fun Day from 11am – 3pm or the over 18s Super Saturday Night kicking off at 4pm till 11:30pm. Finally, to close the event, Perth Craft Beer Festival will be hosting their very own Father’s Day Sunday starting at midday until 7pm.

So if you love craft beer, then this is one event you do not want to miss out on this September.
