This weekend the Australian Drinks Festival rolls into Melbourne, and there is plenty of beery and cidery goodness to be found inside the Royal Exhibition Centre.

Blindfolded Sensory Tasting

Don’t miss the Beer Diva’s fascinating talks at the festival this Saturday. Surprise your tastebuds as Kirrily Waldhorn brings out her blindfolds and guides you through a sensory immersion session. How well do you know your hops from your malts, your stouts from your sours… test your senses in this fun series of sensory challenges, with prizes for the best palates!

Got a great beer palate already?

Spend Sunday afternoon being guided through an ultra-exclusive range of unique, highly sought after beers. From limited release batches through to barrel-aged brews, and interesting and unique beer styles – all are guaranteed to spoil your taste buds with their complexity and intriguing elegance.

Love Dark Spirits?

Whether your passion is Bourbon, Scotch whisky, Canadian whisky, or rum, there is plenty to keep you busy. Think plenty of free samples in the boutique market, presentations from experts like Dave Mitton (a world authority on the wonders of Canadian whisky), masterclasses (head to the Bourbon Legends stand to learn all about the different styles of bourbon in a guided tasting), and the World’s Smallest Bar presented by Monkey Shoulder.

That’s not all…

There will stacks of gin brands, plenty of cider, great Australian craft spirits, amazing food trucks and some live music thrown in for good measure. Don’t miss out!
