Independent breweries, beer tastings, brewing masterclasses and more – our Backyard Invitational Gold Coast will feature everything we love about beer!

 

Following its inaugural event last November at our Brisbane brewery site, we’re excited to invite you to the Backyard Invitational Gold Coast – an all-inclusive beer festival and charity fundraiser featuring 22 independent brewing, distilling and providore friends from the region and beyond.

 

IMPORTANT CHANGE TO SESSION TIMES

 

Due to the unprecedented popularity of the day session (12.00pm – 3.30pm), we’ve decided to merge both sessions into a single extended session from 2.00pm – 6.30pm.

 

This single session brings no changes to the original schedule: punters will enjoy the same masterclasses, beers, live music and food trucks in what is now a 4.5-hour session (an extra 1.5 hours).

 

Masterclasses will now run from 3.00pm – 5.00pm.

 

We understand the single extended session won’t work for everyone, so if people can’t make it, they’re entitled to a refund. On your ticket, click 'Contact the organiser' to start the refund process.

Saturday 17 August 2019

Surfstitch Warehouse, 225 – 227 Burleigh Connection Road, Burleigh Waters QLD 4220

SINGLE EXTENDED SESSION 2.00pm – 6.30pm

All-inclusive tickets: $60 +BF

 

Hosted at the Surfstitch Warehouse in Burleigh Waters, the Backyard Invitational brings together friends and family for the love of independent beer, with tasting stands, food trucks, live music, and beer industry talks and masterclasses.

 

An event for beer-lovers – from craft explorers to dedicated beer geeks – the Backyard Invitational Gold Coast is, importantly, an opportunity for brewers and drinkers to connect and share the pleasures of craft beer.

 

Masterclasses as described by host Luke Robertson

  • Coffee, chocolate and roasted malts

They'll be a Stone & Wood brewer, Scott Hargrave from Balter and Paul Holgate from Holgate Brewery to tell us all about dark beer. They make incredible, tasty, gorgeous dark beers that you should absolutely be drinking right now. Learn why. 

 

  • Sour is sweet. 

Join Brad Rogers from Stone & Wood/Forest for the Trees, Matt Houghton from Boatrocker Brewers and Distillers and the team from Hop Nation/Site Fermentation as we talk about sour beer, why it's incredible for the Australian climate, and why it's different to your average beer. 

 

  • Native Fruit, distilling and purple honey

With Husk Distillers, Brookies Gin and Currumbin Valley Brewing. Taste locally grown and native ingredients, and learn how to ferment them at home using only honey. Attendees will even leave with their own little ferment to take home, that we will all create live in a communal workshop.
