Now in its fifth year, High Country Hops is the only festival of its kind in mainland Australia; a celebration of the Victorian hop harvest and the launch fresh hop beers. This is an opportunity for craft beer lovers to taste the freshest beers imaginable, straight from the source.
Over two days, March 30 and 31, the brewery car park in Beechworth comes to life, as the eight craft brewers of the region pour their wares along with a selection of local winemakers and distillers. Rounded out by carefully curated local food offerings and an eclectic, suitably festive musical soundtrack.
This year for the first time, Bridge Road Brewers will be hosting some special guest breweries from further afield - a couple of their favourite Australian brewers will be joining for the festival. First cab off the rank is Wildflower Brewing and Blending from Sydney.
There will also be the unique opportunity to experience Beechworth up close, with a glamping village being built in the centre of Beechworth’s historic precinct. Some 'hopped up' glamping packages will be announced next week.
Entry to the event area is free to all comers. However if you are looking to sample or drink beer at the festival a ticket is required. This ticket will provide you with 100 millilitres of beer from each of the brewers exhibiting. Entry for children is free.
