Good Beer Week


Good Beer Week is upon us, get ready to cheers all things pots, cans, mugs, pints, schooners and jars…

The Aussie beer-fest kicks off on May 16 with Beer Deluxe Federation Square named as the official ‘Good Beer Week Hub’.

It is no surprise that Beer Deluxe was chosen as the official hub given it’s supremely competitive and unique beer offering of local, international and craft beer, possessing arguably the widest selection of beer in any pub in Victoria.
