The brainchild of Luke Tilse from The Happy Wombat and The Young Street Hotel and Taiyo Namba from Nagisa, Susuru, and Âpé Yakitori Bar, Newcastle Beer Fest started as a collaboration event in Honeysuckle, known as the Boardwalk Beer Festival. Now, it has evolved into a celebration of independent beer, aimed at elevating the category within Newcastle and showcasing the city's rich brewing culture.

So mark your calendars and grab your tickets for a day filled with great beer and good vibes at Newcastle Beer Fest.
