Week Long Tap Takeovers

Australia has a rich and diverse brewing scene and we’re very proud of it. With hundreds of beers from across the country (and the Tasman), it could be tough to get round to tasting them all, so we’ve made it easier for you with Tap Takeovers across the city.

Several venues will host beers from a particular brewery, state, or country.

Pubs and bars have temporarily lent their taps out to some of the finest Australian and international breweries. Discerning punters will have the opportunity to travel the beer world without leaving town.
