Create your own mini version, of course!
To celebrate the end of Beer Lovers Week, members of the Tasmanian Cider Trail and Tasmanian Beer Trail have collaborated, joining forces to give the public a small-scale festival this Sunday the 22nd of November.
Some of the state’s favourite and newest thirst quenchers will be available in the one place this Sunday at The Apple Shed, in the Huon Valley.
“Now that the Tasmanian Beerfest has moved to a bi-annual event we thought there was a gap in the calendar and so we have got some of our friends from the craft beer and cider community together for a day of good times, good food, good tunes and sensational craft beer and cider,” explained Willie Smith’s co-owner Sam Reid.
“We love Beerfest and it’s a shame its not on this year so we thought we’d have a mini festival and, best of all, the event is FREE!”
Busses will be available from Hobart for $15 return leaving from Campbell St, next to the Grand Chancellor at 11am and returning by 5pm. Tickets for the busses need to be booked by COB Thursday the 19th of November to allow time to arrange them and can be purchased by searching for “Brews @ The Apple Shed” on eventbrite or by following this link: www.eventbrite.com.au/e/brews-the-apple-shed-tickets-19394114318

“There will also be a peoples choice award for the best beer as chosen by the attendees and the winning beer will go on tap at The Apple Shed as ‘Beer of the Month’,” Mr Reid said.

Ryan Morgan, Director of Beer Lovers Week says he’s happy the week will conclude on a high.
“We are thrilled that the Apple Shed is hosting an event like this during Beer Lovers Week. It is a great opportunity to showcase some of the best that these two industries have to offer, all in a beautiful setting that oozes history,” Mr Morgan said.
