Keen to do more than just check out the beers at the Good Beer Week Gala Showcase on March 22 + 23?

Our series of free masterclasses with some of the best industry experts in the country will help take your Gala experience to the next level!

Check out the sneak preview of a few of the masterclasses below, as well as learning what Modus Operandi, one of our Official Festival Breweries, will be bringing to the Showcase! 

P.S: The Friday session is now SOLD OUT! We've only got limited tickets for Thursday, so get in early if you don't want to miss out!


MAYDAY HILLS WITH BRIDGE ROAD BREWERS: Explore Bridge Road's range of Mayday Hills beers, all brewed with Brettanomyces.

WINE BARREL AGEING: SWEET OR SOUR? Join Holgate Brewer Matt Ives as he compares two very different beers aged in the same wine barrels.

THE DIVERSITY OF SOUR BEER WITH HOP NATION: Hop Nation's team takes you through the wide variety of styles to be found in the sour category.

IPA MASTERCLASS WITH FIXATION BREWING CO: The hopheads at Fixation know their way around an IPA! Join them for a masterclass on all things hops.


 Modus Operandi is hitting the Gala Showcase for the first time and will be giving you a sneaky preview of their exclusive Good Beer Week beer and it is, as Jason and Kylie once said, especially for you!  

They have brewed a VIC ONLY Modus beer which will come out in May! Working with a Melbourne coffee roaster, the brew team has produced a Vanilla Mocha Stout which promises to be super chocolatey, with a light roasty sweetness.

They'll also be pouring Sonic Prayer, Former Tenant and limited Release Majestic Leopard. Hit their bar, have a chat, and enjoy some amazing MO beers!


Finally, we need volunteers for the Gala Showcase! If you'd like to volunteer your time in exchange for a free ticket to another session, a GBW t-shirt, and our undying gratitude, head here for the volunteer form!
