Weekend Buzz: Beer InCider Experience, Eat Drink Blog 2014, Brisbane Festival + Give Away

The Beer InCider Experience

Brisbane's official craft beer & cider festival kicks off this weekend (Sept. 20-21) at Albion Park Raceway. For those of you who have just completed a 3 year stint at the International Space Station...let me clue you in about this exciting new event. The Beer InCider Festival was founded by Marty Keetels.

Marty posted this now famous picture on Facebook back in 2013 which explains it all...

Yes that's right he quit his job as a lawyer to follow his dream of bringing Brisbane an EPIC beer and cider festival - we are so glad he did! The festival features over 130 craft beers & ciders. Not to mention mouthwatering gourmet food, and live music! We attended a picnic launch for the festival this weekend and we are so stoked. It's just what Brisbane needed. You will no doubt see us walking around snapping photos and sipping cider Sunday afternoon! TIP: Bring a sun hat and a picnic blanket. Tickets can be purchased online at a discounted rate ( CLICK HERE ) and at the gate.

Eat Drink Blog 2014

Eat Drink Blog 2014 takes place this weekend! We are incredibly excited for our FIRST EVER blogger's conference. If you follow us on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook prepare to be spammed with conference photos (I apologize in advance...) Bloggers from across Australia will converge on Brisbane for this annual event.

Here's a bit of history on EDB...

Eat Drink Blog was started by a group of Australian food & drink bloggers who wanted to create a regular Australian food & drink blogger's conference in the style of the International Food blogger's conference. The conference is in it's fifth year. Each year it is held in a different state and organized by food & drink bloggers from that state. Although registrations for this year's conference are closed you can still follow along with the conference activities by looking under the #EDB14 hashtag this weekend.
