September 23, 2014 by 250 Beers

goodfoodandwineshowWith the popularity of craftier beers on the rise, it’s possibly no real surprise that the Brisbane Good Food & Wine Show has embraced beer as part of it’s line-up for the first time this year. There are four beer related masterclasses available and they look rather appealing and affordable…


This year’s Brisbane Good Food & Wine Show will, for the first time, feature a dedicated series of masterclasses revolving around Queensland’s favourite summer’s day golden ale.

Whether you want to be inspired by master brewers, explore a selection of the world’s best beers, discover the difference glass shape can make to your beer drinking experience or simply enjoy a few cold ones with friends, you’ll find the opportunity at this year’s Show at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, October 17-19 from 9am-5pm daily.

Discover that there’s more to beer than meets the eye at one of these dedicated masterclasses:

Moo Brew presents Craft Beer 101 ($20)
11.00am – 11.45pm Daily

With the opportunity to try three core styles brewed by Moo Brew, this is a fantastic class for any beer lover, regardless of your existing knowledge.

Spiegelau Beer Glass Tasting ($50)
12.30pm – 1.30pm Daily
Join us for a Spiegelau Beer Glass Tasting and discover the impact that glass shape can have on your beer.

With your host Csilla Swain, Brand Manager of Spiegelau Australia, discover how the thickness of the glass impacts the temperature, and be amazed by the loss of flavour and enjoyment when drinking straight from the bottle. The tasting kit you will use during the class, including the Lager, Wheat Beer, IPA and Stemmed Pilsner glasses, is yours to keep, valued at $79.95. This fascinating and informative tasting will change the way you drink beer forever!

Then we’ll head across the Atlantic and sample bold, flavour-forward creations from Sierra Nevada and Rogue – breweries at the forefront of America’s craft beer revolution. Will it be the Old or New World for you? Armed with the right glasses, you’ll taste these two worlds at their very best!

Modern Australian Craft Beer, with Bridge Road Brewers ($20)
