The event will take you on the journey of beer as you know it at Phillip Island.

This is a Phillip Island first, where craft beer is being brewed on the Island, utilising natural surroundings to improve the quality and footprint of our locally produced beer.

At 2.00pm make your own way to Bimbadeen Phillip Island, a 340-acre family run working farm, for a one to two - hour tour.

Steve from Bimbadeen will share some information on how the spent grain is used, innovative environmental practices used on the farm, the award-winning premium quality beef and the need for farming enterprises to diversify.

If you have traveled from Melbourne or afar this is the time to check into your accommodation ready for a 6.00pm start at Ocean Reach Brewing.

For the next part of your journey enjoy a four-course dinner inspired by beer using Bimbadeen produce. You will get five Ocean Reach beers, one of which brewed especially for GBW.

During the evening, Simon Bismire our Head Brewer and co-founder will give a talk.
