Crafternoon Craft Beer & Cider Festival


May 11, 2015 by 250 Beers

This is a bit of an odd concept but one that will likely succeed with Marty Keetels at the helm.

Crafternoon is a three day beer and cider festival combining good beer with an abundance of food trucks…in the car park of Queensland’s largest shopping centre – Westfield Chermside.

crafternoon at chermside bannerThe event is a collaborative project between Westfield and Beer InCider and kicks-off this Thursday 14th May at 5pm with a four hour session. The same again will happen on Friday however on Saturday the gates will open at midday and close at 8pm.

The event is free and I’d advise you to get there early if you’re thinking of going – especially on Saturday. It’s worth bearing in mind that the event will be taking up the entire Provenance Craft Bistro Car Park therefore the centre’s other car parks will fill quicker than usual.

‘Chermy’ is 10 kilometres directly north of Brisbane’s CBD which means it’s closer to my house which, in turn, means that I’m selfishly looking forward to it.

I’ll be manning the Newstead Brewing Co. stall for the entire Thursday session and until 4pm on Saturday – come and say hello and have a chuckle at my expense as I attempt to pour beer for your pleasure.

Here’s a run-down of the breweries and food trucks involved:

4 Pines and Brookvale Union

All Inn Brewing Co.

Bridge Road Brewers

Brisbane Brewing Co.

Fortitude Brewing Co.

Green Beacon Brewing Co.

Hills Cider Company

Moo Brew

Mountain Goat Beer

Newstead Brewing Co.

The Food Trucks committed to be in attendance are as follows:
