The Sunshine Coast Beef & Beers Festival has hit the sweet spot with those who love a good slow-cooked feast and a delicious drop to wash it down.
Tickets to the inaugural event have been flying out the door, with the VIP rooftop bar area and the VIP Moët and Chandon champagne garden selling out just three weeks after being released.
Event founder Todd Forrest says he is anticipating around 3000 people to attend the August 31 event, which
will take over a section of the Lake Kawana foreshore, Sportsmans Parade and the Sunshine Coast Stadium building.
Mr Forrest says with successful craft beer festivals already established on the Coast, he wanted to put a “new spin on things” and showcase the American-style of slow-cooked meats.
Teaming up with Brisbane-based Newstead Brewing Co, guests will be able to pair any of the 14 signature brews or cider with the food on offer from a range of pop-up food stalls, or try a Diablo alcoholic ginger beer with their brisket.
Those who are more partial to champagne can step into the champagne garden and enjoy Coast-made cheeses.
Children aged 12 and under free when entering with an adult. For more information and tickets visit beefandbeersfestival.com.au.
