Queensland beer lovers who have been jealously watching the growth of beer festivals in southern states will get their very own celebration of good beer in 2013, with the inaugural Queensland Beer Week.
Organised by the publishers of the Beer Lovers Guide to Australia and Critics Choice – Australia’s Best Beers, the event will seek to work with all of Queensland’s best breweries and good-beer-focused pubs, bottle shops and restaurants to coordinate a week of tastings and events designed to showcase the best of Australian beer and beer culture.
Queensland Beer Week will run from 13 – 20 July 2013 and will include events across the state, from the South-East corner right up to Cairns in the Far North.
Event coordinator, Mark Midro, said Queensland Beer will be a state-wide celebration of beer for its finest properties.
“Beer is rapidly changing as is our perception of it and Queensland Beer Week will seek to showcase the best that beer can be,” he said.
“Queensland Beer Week and the individual events will be a celebration of beer’s many flavours and showcase the rapidly developing beer culture, as well the breweries and venues that are helping to create and shape that modern beer culture.”
“When you look at the flourishing craft beer industry Australia wide, Queensland has been a little slower to embrace the evolving beer culture, but over the last twelve months there have been big changes here.”
“Queensland Beer Week will act as a focus for this developing beer scene and help to responsibly promote this growing beer appreciation movement right across the state,” Mark said.
Venues that are interested in being involved in Queensland Beer Week and hosting events such as tastings and dinners are invited to contact Mark to register their interest.
