Adelaide’s Beer & BBQ Festival’s inaugural HomeBrewed event is finally going ahead this weekend after South Australia’s December lockdown coincided with its original date.
“It’s been a wild ride for us, the brewers, the chefs and the artists so we just can’t wait to give them a platform to do their thing,” event organiser Aaron Sandow said.
“There have been so many challenges, but we are so proud of the line-up and those contributing to the fest. Special thanks to our punters who have held on to their tickets and shown such an appetite for what we have in store.”
The three day HomeBrewed Festival kicks off tomorrow (Feb 5) at the Adelaide Showgrounds and features the likes of local breweries Prancing Pony, Big Shed, Pirate Life and Uraidla alongside interstate guests such as Young Henrys, Dainton and Range.
Top Adelaide bar The Gilbert Street Hotel’s International Sour Bar will be debuting and will showcase special kegs from around the world including Firestone Walker, Rodenbach and Jester King as well as Australia’s Wildflower and One Drop.
Alongside the huge selection of beer there is a massive range of food and entertainment on offer.
The Beer & BBQ Festival said they had worked closely with SA Health to ensure best practice in delivering a safe, COVID-friendly event, including ample sanitation, cleaning procedures, contract tracing and plenty of space.
“Our goal is to deliver the best experience possible to our festival-goers in the current climate,” Aaron said.
“Being open-air is great, punters will be able to meander the site at their leisure, visiting brewers, watching a band and eating the delicious BBQ on offer, while remaining safe.”
