Get Ready for the Bitter & Twisted Boutique Beer Festival

To celebrate its 10th year, the Bitter and Twisted Boutique Beer Festival is bringing in the biggest line up ever. Be at the Maitland Gaol on November 5 and 6 to enjoy great music, glorious food, and over 80 craft beers.

Headlining this year’s festival are two great Australian artists. Catch the four-piece indie rock band The Jungle Giants on the first day and see them perform new songs from their recently released second LP – Speakerzoid. On the second day is the award-wining blues musician, Ash Grunwald. He has eight studio albums and also received nominations for both ARIA Music Awards and APRA Awards.

Other artists gracing the stage are Gypsy & The Cat, William Crighton, Wasted Wanderers, Elwood Myre, Hey Geronimo, Cheap Fakes, and The Buzzard Mix.

While enjoying great entertainment, you won’t get hungry as there are several local and international food available complete with vegetarian and gluten free options. You can partner this with your choice of beer. In fact, there are over 80 craft beers as well as cider and wines. You will definitely find a new favourite brew.

The Bitter and Twisted Boutique Beer Festival is also open for families. If you want to bring them, make sure to do it on the second day of the event.
