Good Beer Week

Beer & Brewer is giving one lucky reader a free trip to Melbourne for the second weekend of Good Beer Week, from 18-21 May.

The prize, valued at $3,000, includes return flights for two to Melbourne, three nights’ accommodation at Tyrian Serviced Apartments, and tickets to a bunch of Good Beer Week events. The winner will also receive a one-year subscription to Beer & Brewer.

This year more than 170 venues are involved and the program has been broken down into four streams: Beer Lover, Foodie, Beer Geek, and Good Times. The full program of events can be viewed on the Good Beer Week website.

Kate Paterson, the General Manager of Good Beer Week, said that every beer lover needs to experience how Melbourne comes alive during the festival.

“We really believe that every lover of beer should make the trip to Melbourne for Good Beer Week at least once, so this competition is the perfect opportunity for someone based further afield to see how this city pulls out all the stops for Good Beer Week.

“Melbourne becomes one huge beer adventure during the festival, and the winner of the Good Beer Weekend competition will get to be right in the middle of it, thanks to their accommodation at Tyrian Serviced Apartments and the tickets they’ll win to events. For a beer lover, it’s pretty much the ideal weekend.”

“We’re so excited about the seventh Good Beer Week because we’ve really been able to add in some new elements that take the whole festival to a new level. Our Good Beer Mates program has brought in brewers from Portland breweries including Commons and Breakside, as well as beer cocktail expert Jacob Grier. This is an opportunity we haven’t had before, and it really proves that Good Beer Week is a globally renowned festival.”

To enter, all you have to do is take a photo with your Good Beer Mate and give us a short explanation as to why you deserve to win. Creativity will be rewarded!

  1. The question is that if one wins this and already has tickets to the event, will Beer & Brewer be able to convince GABS to refund them?
