Best of Adelaide Brewers Festival takes over the Harts Mill precinct in Port Adelaide over an entire weekend. Beer, cider, gin, cold brew coffee, food trucks and music combine in the one place to create a party to remember. 15th, 16th and 17th of February are the dates to add to your diary, whether you block out the whole weekend or just one session. There will be two stages, with one dedicated to music outside and the other beer education. I will be running several sessions over the entire weekend, including meet the brewers segment where every single brewery will tell their story and run the crowd through their beers.
