Looking for something to do tonight? This weekend? Next month?
These beer events will keep you going - everything you need is right here!
Whether you’re seeking out new beers, want to strut your stuff at a local trivia night, or out to support local home brewers, there’s something for everyone on our busy calendar of events.
With Gold Coast events ranging from lunches to free tastings, and Brisbane events that allow you to meet your favourite brewer or sample a fresh brew before anyone else, our beer events page is a comprehensive guide to what’s happening in southeast Queensland.
This page offers a consolidated list of beer festivals and special occasions celebrating beer while also highlighting fun things to do at local venues that support the independent craft beer scene.
While it’s always Oktoberfest at Felons Barrel Hall, we’re thrilled to be hosting the largest Oktoberfest in Brisbane this year, over the long weekend from Friday October 29th – Sunday October 31st.
For the three-day event, the Barrel Hall will become an adventurous destination where Brisbane locals can sip through a range of 3x limited-release Felon’s lagers on tap for the occasion, indulge in delicious German-fusion eats, and become immersed in a colourful blend of live performances & entertainment from Brisbane’s best local artists.
Pre-pay for your first half stein to secure your ticket for what will be a weekend of cultural experience and frivolity.
Mongrel’s 3rd birthday celebrations, after being mercilessly struck down by lockdown, are back from the grave and ready to party.
SATURDAY Dress in your Halloween finest, bring your weird friends, and enjoy some free local music.
Ghost Mutt – 7pm
Possibly the most Mongrel band ever, seeing as three of the members are Mongrel bar staff, this will be Ghost Mutt’s first ever gig. Rodrigo, Torian and Annie are joined by friends Maddy and Dylan to play moody pop rock songs about existential dread.
Menajerie – 8pm
A funk and soul collective made up of seasoned Meanjin-based musos, blending high energy music you know and love with tasty originals. This 6-piece female led band has strong focus on tight vocal harmony, re-imagining funk classics and penning originals inspired by artists like The Meters, Hiatus Kaiyote, Jon Cleary & Moonchild. Powerhouse vocalists meet a powerful rhythm section that will leave the audience worshipping at the altar of FUNK.
From 2pm our crusty souls will be soothed by the jazzy wizardry of We Will Not Stand For This (Lachlan Kidd on bass clarinet, Peter Yi on guitar, Casey Glennen on bass) and Jassid Reflux (Angus Hall on drums, Jeremy O’Connor on bass, Andrew Fincher on guitar) Free entry

A good friend of Helios, Binni (who we think resembles the Goddess Red Rye label with that lovely long red hair), is taking part in the World’s Greatest Shave for the Leukaemia Foundation!
In March 2022, we will be holding a World’s Greatest Shave event for Binni’s big day at Helios!
Come along and support Binni as she will be shaving her beautiful hair on this day in front of everyone. There will also be lots of fun things to see and eat for gold coin donations to help raise more money and awareness.
Binni has been growing her hair at a long length for 7yrs. The goal is to be shaving it all off, down to just a few millimeters. Binni’s goal to shave it all off is $20,000.
Sponsoring Binni gives families facing blood cancer the emotional and practical support they need. You’ll also fund vital research to help more people survive blood cancers, while improving their quality of life.
Every day 47 Australians are diagnosed with a blood cancer. That’s one Aussie every 31 minutes. Although research is improving survival, sadly an Australian loses their life to blood cancer every two hours.
Now in its seventh year the event is seen as one of the city’s largest and most-anticipated FREE all-day street parties. The event will return Sunday 1 May 2022 – a prequel to Monday’s Labour Day public holiday
