GABF is back! Across 2 days – Fri 20th Jan: 4pm-10pm & Saturday 21st Jan: 12pm-7pm.

Geelong’s Great Australian Beer Festival (GABF) celebrates its 10th anniversary with a number of exciting changes at the iconic Johnstone Park in Geelong’s CBD, across two days. Adjacent to the Geelong train station, getting to the event has never been easier, whether you’re travelling from Melbourne, Regional Victoria or within Geelong itself.

In 2023 GABF will celebrate more local brewers than ever before. Our local craft beer industry is more vibrant than ever before, and we want to share it with the world! In 2023 we will deliver the event across 2 days so you have plenty of room to move, and less crowd to contend with as you sip and sample your way around GABF.

While the event is primarily a massive alfresco beer tasting and appreciation event, it’s also a live music and entertainment feast. GABF will feature nationally recognized performers to be confirmed.

New breweries include TBC

The return of Barrett Burston Brewers Table with beer lovers having the opportunity to meet and mingle with the brains behind the brands.

…and drumroll… we will be adding a comedy stage to the event on the Friday session, watch this space for an awesome line-up of laughs.

GABF is designed to appeal to more than just beer lovers and is a colourful, social and family-friendly event.
