The Craft Beer and Cider Festival Returns to the Sunshine Coast in 2018

Drink / 9 November 2018

Award winning brews, eats and great tunes – kick start your summer at the Sunshine Coast Craft Beer and Cider Festival.

Nothing says summer like a cold brew in hand on a lazy Saturday afternoon. Easing you into the gloriously warmer months is the return of the Sunshine Coast Craft Beer & Cider Festival. After a sell-out festival in 2017, they’re returning bigger and better than ever.

You’ll want to pencil Saturday 1st December in the diary, with the 2018 festival bill attracting over 50 hand-picked local Australian and New Zealand brewers and cideries to the Sunshine Coast Stadium. Bask in the first official day of summer with 200 craft beers and ciders being poured on the day, with live music providing the ideal accompaniment to the afternoon’s festivities.
