The past few years have seen a revolution in Brisbane’s beer-drinking scene, with the rise of the small bar changing the way drinks are shared between friends.
Craft beer has become an increasinglycentral feature of venues throughout Brisbane, both small and large, introducing the community to the possibilities of quality and creative beer.
In celebration of this burgeoning craft beer culture, March 2014 will see the arrival of Brewsvegas, a week long beer festival described by organisers as a “grass roots, community minded” venture.
TheBrewsvegas festival will encourage venues and breweries to take part in the celebration by hosting events that champion good beer and Brisbane’s unique identity as a city and community. It aims to promote innovation, creativity and teamwork to help nurture and grow the local beer scene.
Brewsvegas is a collaborative venture, with the team hailing from some of Brisbane’s smallest and biggest craft beer venues, restaurants and breweries. The team believes that beer has the power to engage the community with many different facets of Brisbane’s culture, and hopes to showcase the creative and entrepreneurial flair of the vibrant city.
