OVER 20 INDEPENDENT AUSTRALIAN BREWERIES COME TOGETHER IN BURLEIGH TO RAISE THE INDUSTRY BAR

You are here

Stone & Wood, Balter, Black Hops and Burleigh Brewing will be joined by 19 independent Australian breweries and distillers for the Backyard Invitational Gold Coast on Saturday 17 August, an all-inclusive beer festival and charity fundraiser open to the community. 

Held at the Surfstitch Warehouse in Burleigh Waters, Stone & Wood’s Backyard Invitational Gold Coast invites over 20 independent breweries, two distilleries and a local kombucha to share their products and connect with drinkers, with intimate tasting stands, industry talks and masterclasses. 

Alongside the breweries, including local farmhouse brewers Currumbin Valley Brewing, Kaiju! Beer from Victoria and Capital Brewing Co. from Canberra, there’ll be food trucks and live music throughout the day.  

Spread across two sessions (12–3.30pm; 4.30–8pm), tickets to the Backyard Invitational Gold Coast include entry to the festival, all beer, access to talks and masterclasses, a take-home beer cup and a $5 food truck voucher.

Profits from the Backyard Invitational will be directed to a Gold Coast charity via Stone & Wood’s national not-for-profit, the inGrained Foundation. 

The inaugural Backyard Invitational held at Stone & Wood’s Brisbane brewery site, opening later this year, helped raise $3,800 for Brisbane community radio station 4ZZZ last November.

Tickets for the Backyard Invitational Gold Coast are $60 each plus booking fee, available from Thursday 11 July for purchase at www.stoneandwood.com.au.
