If you like your beer — and let’s face it, nothing tastes better at the end of a shift — then February 22nd is a date you’ll want to keep an eye out for. Craft Beer Rising is a national day celebrating local brewers, venues and brews with events taking place across the country next Saturday, the 22nd.
They’ve got over 90 events happening in six states (check out some highlights below and visit craftbeerrising.com.au to discover more) and they’re still taking on more events if your venue wants to get involved.
It’s a great initiative that seeks to raise the profile of the scores of talented Aussie brewers making tasty craft beers, so get involved, raise a pint, and toast to the best that Australian brewing has to offer.
