There and Back Again: Good Beer Week Melbourne


We’ve been traveling to the Land Down Under for years to enjoy their beer, get up to a little brewing with Mountain Goat Brewery for one of our Brewmaster’s Reserve releases, Ridgy-Didge, and to experience Good Beer Week. Heralded by many as “The Best Beer Festival in the World,” Good Beer Week features more than 250 events spanning across Melbourne and Victoria, all celebrating local and international craft beer with a collaborative spirit.

This year, Brooklyn Brewery co-founder and chairman Steve Hindy and Brooklyn Brewery House Chef Andrew Gerson are taking the trip south with a full load of special Brooklyn Brewery beers to participate in discussions, dinners, tastings and far more. Take a look at all of our events below, and be sure to say hi:
