The HINTERLAND CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL is back for 2021, presenting a line-up of eight local breweries and a smorgasbord of fun-filled entertainment, live music and food. The free-entry and family-friendly festival will takeplace at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi on Saturday 26 June from 12noon til 8pm.


The festival will showcase freshly made brews from across the Sunshine Coast    Heads of Noosa, Copperhead Brewery, Boiling Pot Brewing Co, Moffat Beach Brewery, Sunshine Brewery, Brouhaha Brewery, Your Mates Brewing, and of course, Eumundi Brewery.

Imperial Hotel and Eumundi Brewery Manager Paul Thomas is thrilled to be hosting the event after a COVID-necessitated hiatus in 2020.

After what’s been an unquestionably challenging last year, we’re excited to be back again, for what will be our thirdHinterland Craft Beer Festival,” Paul says.

“This much-anticipated event gives beer-lovers a great opportunity to sample and discover new beers, he says. “With more than 40 craft beers on offer, there’ll be something for everyone – ales, lagers, sours, porters, stouts, IPA’s and other specialty beers.

And if you know a thing or two about brewing and are passionate about your craft beer, it is a great chance to meet and share stories with the fabulous team of brewers who’ll be there on the day.

Paul explains that the Hinterland Craft Beer Festival will also present festival-goers with the chance to taste and vote for the two finalist brews in Eumundi Brewery’s ‘Brewed By EU’ beer competition – a Pineapple, Ginger and Macadamia Sour and a Black Cockatoo Smoked Lager.

And if gin is more your thing, there’s the exciting addition of a Gin Bar this year serving up the Imperial Hotel’s house blend Folktale gins. 

To accompany the sensational brews and bevies, there will be some seriously tasty street food on the menu.

The event also boasts a program of live music and grooves throughout the afternoon and into the evening, with a line-up that includes BENNY O, RYAN GILES and the OLIVIA RUTH TRIO. The Imperial Hotel’s Vinyl DJs will also spin some wax, and there’ll be a special BEER FEST KARAOKE taking place in The Bunker for those keen to share their vocal talent!

Roving performers will have guests laughing + there will be special Pinball Lane set up for the day, as well as a raft of old skool pub games.
