Raise a glass to local beer festival

Fleurieu breweries will showcase their goods to beer enthusiasts at a popular festival at Willunga this month.

Having sold out in its inaugural year, the Fleurieu Beer Festival returns to Willunga Recreation Park on Saturday, January 23.

Breweries on the lineup include Smiling Samoyed, Forktree Brewing, South Coast Brewing Co, Shifty Lizard Brewing Co, Swell Brewing Co, Goodieson Brewery, Victor's Place, Mephisto Brewing Co, Moana Brewing, and Vale Ale.

Those who prefer wine and cider will have access to drinks from Zontes Footsteps and McCarthy's Orchard.

Complementing the beverages will be local food and market options, live music from Laura Hill, Ollie English, and Anthony McCann, and other entertainment.

Festival coordinator Heather Williams said the one-day festival was a celebration of craft beer's rise on the Fleurieu, and the largest regional showcase of its kind in South Australia.

"Adelaide's south has seen an explosion in craft beer," Mrs Williams said.

This festival is testament to the talent and quality of beverages produced on our doorstep, as well as an opportunity to raise funds for our local community. We've been inundated with interest already and anticipate the event to sell out quickly.
