Beer, Beats and Bites

Nothing brings people together like craft beer and live music. With 10 local breweries and a killer line-up of entertainment, good vibes are guaranteed at THE HINTERLAND CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL, taking place on Saturday 24 June (12noon – 8pm) at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi.

The event is FREE ENTRY and family friendly.

If you know a thing or two about brewing and love your craft beer, it is a great chance to meet and share stories with the fabulous team of brewers who’ll be there on the day.

The line-up of breweries for 2023 sees a return of festival favourites, with Heads of Noosa Brewing Co, Copperhead Brewery, Boiling Pot Brewing Co, Moffat Beach Brewing Co, Sunshine Brewery, Your Mates Brewing Co, Noosa Hinterland Brewing Co, Matso’s Brewery, Terella Brewing and resident hosts Eumundi Brewery. There’ll also be a pop-up Gin Bar serving up Eumundi Distillers’ Folktale gins. 

On the entertainment front, there will be non-stop live music and grooves throughout the afternoon and into the evening, and roving performers bringing the colour.

Bud Rokesky

The main stage line-up kicks off with local alt-country artist BUD ROKESKY who has firmly planted himself in the music scene as one impressive story teller since the February release of his acclaimed country-folk debut album Outsider. With his rich and resonant voice, reminiscent of Orville Peck and Waylon Jennings, and song writing that has been likened to that of Johnny Cash and Townes Van Zandtit’s Rokesky’s outstanding live performances that will draw you in and leave you wanting more.   

Benny O

Local Eumundi entertainer and crowd favourite BENNY O makes his return to the Beer Fest line-up again this year and is sure to get the crowd singing and dancing with a wide range of heartfelt ballads and foot stomping belters. 

Kurilpa Reach

Bringing the party later in the afternoon are contemporary roots 7-piece KURILPA REACH. Rich in culture, the band features members from Aboriginal, Chilean, and Aotearoa (New Zealand) backgrounds, creating an eclectic sound based in dub, reggae, neo-soul and rock.

Spinning wax and playing tracks, The Imperial Hotel resident Vinyl DJ’s will also be playing sets to keep you grooving throughout the afternoon.

Festival goers with a competitive streak will also enjoy a raft of old skool pub games to play on the day.

Great beer should always be accompanied by great food, and there’ll be a fine selection of tasty street food on offer including modern Mexican served up by So Cal Tacos, Traditional German Sausages, and Little Mayak Malaysian.

Get your crew together for what is sure to be one helluva great day.
