BeerFest to host Tasmania’s biggest New Year’s Eve event

BeerFest, Australia’s longest running and original craft beer festival is ringing in the New Year at Launceston’s Royal Park on 31 December 2019.

Set to be Tassie’s biggest New Year’s Eve event, over 200 of Tasmania’s unique craft brews, ciders, wines and one-off hoppy creations will be on offer making this perfect prelude to 2020.

Internationally recognised for its culinary reputation, festival goers will also delve into Tasmania’s finest flavours while experiencing a huge line-up of entertainment from 4pm till 12am.

From family-friendly activities to comedy acts, 2 firework displays and live music from ARIA-award winning band, Art vs Science and Tasmania’s very own The Bad Dad Orchestra, families and late-night revellers will be in for a New Year’s Eve to remember!

As part of their international 10th Anniversary Tour, Art vs Science have created a one-off beer in collaboration with BeerFest, Burnley Brewing and CryerMalt. This limited-edition summer session ale ‘Art vs Science vs Beer’ will only be available at BeerFest events. The band have also teamed up with Burnley Brewing to design the can artwork, with inspiration taken from their first album cover.

This year, Launceston BeerFest welcomes substantial laughs with a number of comedy acts. From 4.30pm – 5pm kids and families will enjoy a Kids Comedy show, while comedy stars Danny McGinlay (Game Day, The Project, Utopia, Bulldogs Banner Writer), Emergency Poncho, Sally-Rose McShane and Russell Redmond will perform for the adults at 5.30pm and 7.30pm.

Learn about beer and the art of brewing at a range of masterclasses and tastings lead by industry leaders. The program includes sessions on ‘Becoming a Winemaker in 25 minutes!’, ‘Style Island – A Tasmanian Cidermaker Forum’, ‘Taking a home brewery to the next level by Forgotten Island Brewery’ and ‘Brewing the Basics with Boags Beer’.
