CRAFTED BEER & CIDER FESTIVAL Ready To Crack A Cold One This Weekend


Yes, you read correctly – it’s time to crack a cold one. Thanks to an easing of restrictions in Queensland, Crafted Beer + Cider Festival is pouring ahead THIS WEEKEND on Saturday 11 September at the lush, beachside precinct of Kurrawa ParkBroadbeach.

With a lager-than-life line-up of beers and bands already announced, understandably, some of the festival’s southern friends can no longer able to make it up to Queensland. Festival organisers today reveal the final line-up of froths and tunes as well as the set times and a few extra surprises.

On the froth front, a welcome addition to the line-up is the IPA obsessed Fixation Brewing Co. sending their best from Collingwood, VIC. They join a whopping 48 brewers with some of the already announced highlights including local seltzer slingers Hard Fizz as they get fizzy at the festival in Local’s Lane for the first time, alongside other big hitting locals Black Hops BrewingLost Palms Brewing Co. and Currumbin Valley Brewing just to name a few.

Something’s been a-brewing for local new kids on the block, Precinct Brewing Co, as they join with festival organisers to create exclusive brew Crafted x Precinct Festiv-Ale, a hazy pale ale full of tropical flavours – the perfect festival froth. The festival exclusive collab is one of 18 brews that will be pouring for the first time at Crafted.

To accompany the brews, the new music line up is absolutely stacked to the max with local vibe makers – bringing with them a whole lot of government-sanctioned dancing. The Gold Coast Music stage will be pumping with already announced Tassie rockers Luca Brasi, GC funk lords Electrik Lemonade and indie darlings Pure Milk. And now joining them will be Brissy alt-rock 4-piece and all-round bloody legends, SEMANTICS, who will bring their arm-in-arm power rock anthems to the stage, alongside beloved indie-rock outfit Chutney, Brisbane’s energetic Flag Duty and local up-and-comers honeygum. As always, beatniks DJs will be spinning vinyl to keep the good vibes pouring all day.

Drop-in and check out the Blackflag Young Henrys Skate Ramp. Watch on as the Sunshine Coast’s Blackflag Brewing takes on southerners Young Henrys in the ultimate battle of brew vs brew and crew vs crew. In between rounds, festival organisers will serve up a range of froth-worthy festival activities. Show off your booze balancing skills in the inaugural Beer Paddle Race as you race your mates around a keg, trying not to spill a precious drop of your beers. Of course, all the Crafted faves are back, including ping pong competitions, beer yoga and the infamous Cycho’s Hot Wing Eating Competition.

Now in its fifth year, Crafted Beer + Cider Festival is a survivor in festival terms but that doesn’t mean it holds any immunity. Last week’s announcement of changes in COVID-19 restrictions have allowed organisers to lay down the classic Crafted experience (including dancing!) and the team are feeling VERY lucky they are able to move ahead. We can’t wait to raise a glass to the local brewers, small business and event industries as they get back into the full swing of things. 

Tickets are bubbling up quick – with last year selling out before the day. Don’t miss out on the chance to discover your next go-to six-pack and a gorgeous day beachside with mates.
