About this Event
The Carwyn Collaborational is a boutique international beer festival of an ilk not seen in Australia before. The festival will pair 12 of the best craft breweries in Australia with 12 renowned international breweries in a street party style festival on Blythe St in Thornbury, Melbourne. In the spirit of collaboration, the paired breweries will share a stand on the day—and you bet your britches that each pairing will collaborate on a beer! Some collaboration brews will be available at the festival, and some will be released at a later date.
