As we enter what would have been our tenth ever Good Beer Week, we're obviously pretty sad we can’t celebrate it with you all in person. However just because we are all stuck at home doesn’t mean the week can’t be a Good Beer Week, in its own way. Over the next few days, we’ll be rolling out a Good Beer Week Virtual Festival program.

In light of the announcement today by the Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews, declaring Victoria in a state of emergency and on the back of the Government’s ban of non-essential gatherings of over 500 people, Good Beer Week has been carefully considering the ramifications of holding our festival on May 15-23.
Today, we’ve come to the very difficult decision that Good Beer Week will be postponed until further information is revealed regarding the current Coronavirus crisis.
The Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, announced this afternoon in alignment with advice from Australia’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Brendan Murphy, that from Monday the 16th of March, non-essential gatherings of over 500 people should be cancelled.
Scott Morrison stated, such measures have been put in place as a precautionary method to ensure the transmission of the virus is managed in the best possible way. While mass gatherings are advised against, the Prime Minister has said it is not a ‘ban’ and Australians should go about business as usual.
Can you believe it? In 2011, Good Beer Week came about with a couple of beer minded friends at Beer DeLuxe.
