Sample the finest brews in the country at Australia's largest beer festival, the Tasmanian International Beerfest!

Hobart's waterfront will be transformed into a 'universe of boutique and craft beer' on Saturday November 24 and Sunday November 25.

There's so much to enjoy during this action-packed weekend, with not only beers on offer but also local Tassie food, live music and a 150 metre waterfront beer garden to enjoy your brews in the sun.

You will also have the opportunity to learn the tricks of the trade from some of Australia's best brewers and cider makers, with free master classes being held at the festival.

Last year's event attracted over 12,000 people showcasing more than 300 beers and ciders from around the world including Corona, Rekorderlig Ciders, Matilda Bay Brewing Company, Mercury Cider and Carlsberg.

The festival has built quite the reputation in the industry, winning an award in 2011 for the Best Beer Event in Oz and NZ from the Beer and Brewer Magazine.

There's also a fine lineup of talent to entertain beer lovers during the weekend with ARIA award winner and Tasmania's very own Monique Brumby performing at the festival.

Joining Brumby will be other class acts including ACUMEN, Ben Wells and the Middle Names, Pete Cornelius & the DeVilles, Sam Cole and the Mornings, The Christopher Coleman Collective and a number of other local talent.

Tickets for the festival can be pre-purchased online from the Tasmanian International Beerfest website or you can opt to buy tickets at the main gate during festival hours.

Tickets are $30 per person, with a single ticket allowing one person entry for one day of the event. Each ticket also comes with ten free tasting tokens and a Beerfest tasting glass.

More tasting tokens are available at the festival at the cost of $10 for ten tokens.

If you make one of the first 500 pre sale purchases you will get a free one issue subscription to Beer & Brewer magazine – so get in quick for tickets!
