It was the fourth edition of the festival and Eumundi brewery manager Paul Thomas said it was the best yet.
“It’s a big wow from us, with a tremendous array of beer lovers at Eumundi for what was a really great festival centered around quality local beers,” he said.
“We couldn’t have asked for more magical weather for the festival, which saw a lineup of 10 local breweries, a gin bar, food trucks and an afternoon of fun entertainment and live music.”
The festival featured over 80 beers from across the Sunshine Coast, made by the brewing teams of Heads of Noosa Brewing Co, Copperhead Brewery, Boiling Pot Brewing Co, Moffat Beach Brewing Co, Sunshine Brewery, Your Mates Brewing Co, Noosa Hinterland Brewing Co., Matso’s Brewery, Terella Brewing and, of course, Eumundi Brewery.
The festival grooves continued through the afternoon and into the evening, with a line-up that included Blues Arcadia, Benny O and the Ryan Giles Trio.
The Imperial Hotel’s vinyl DJs also spun the decks and Karaoke Beer Fest took place in The Bunker, for those keen to get on the mic.
Roving performers kept guests laughing and festival-goers of all ages enjoyed the bevy of old-school pub games.
