Get ready Adelaide for the biggest, baddest, fattest, loudest beer festival south of the equator!

Get ready Adelaide for the biggest, baddest, fattest AND loudest beer festival south of the equator.

The Beer and BBQ Festival have announced its extensive beverage lineup, featuring some of the country’s best brewers, distillers, winemakers, and everything in between. It will keep you going all weekend.

Get ready for a massive few days featuring the likes of Australian living legends, The Living End, surf rockers Dune Rats, founding member of the Avalanches, Dexter, and punk royalty Magic Dirt.

Expect the most extensive beverage lineup to date as well, with over 80 brewers, distillers, and makers, including 24 producers making their festival debut.

Adelaide Beer and BBQ Festival Co-director Aaron Sandow says having so many new and exciting beverage options is a great thing for the festival.

“The brewers are the reason this festival exists. Seeing so many on point brewers from all over Australia assemble under the one roof which is what makes ABBF truly the Biggest and Baddest festival of them all,” Aaron says.

Those making their maiden appearance include Bracket Brewing who hail from the craft beer capital of Australia – the Inner West of Sydney, fellow Sydney Brewery One Drop Brewing Co., Perth’s Nowhere Man Brewery will be making the trip east, while Victoria’s Co-conspirators Brewing who are famed for their unique blend of hops will be at the Showground.

One of the newest breweries making their debut is Adelaide-based Tiny Fish Brew, which is quickly making a name for themselves with their microbrews that pack a punch.

Returning heavy hitting veterans of ABBF include Banks, Mountain Culture (NSW), Fox Friday (TAS) and Range Brewing (QLD), who will be presenting alongside a gluttony of award winning South Australian stalwarts in Big Shed, Uraidla, Bowden and Mismatch to name but a few.

For those who aren’t the biggest fans of beer, don’t worry because there really is something for everyone at the 2023 festival.

The Gospel, Australia’s first and only Whiskey distillery exclusively dedicated to Rye Whiskey, will be making its first appearance at the festival alongside fellow distillers, Storytellers and Mad Monkey, both from SA.

Other beverage options include SA wines, from Mollydooker and TinShed, ciders from LOBO and Hills Cider, plus world-class spirits from Dasher + Fisher out of Tassie and SA’s own Heaps Good Spirits.

Pirate Life’s Rec Centre is building a reputation as a must-stop location and Pirate Life takes that reputation seriously so is stepping up its game with a huge BMX and skate ramp, with demos from some of Australia’s best BMX riders including X Games gold medallist Vince Byron, happening all weekend.

It will also house a brand-new live music stage, live projection art installation, market stalls and the ever-popular pinball arcade.

Noodle Doof Brewery out of regional Victoria is bringing a ‘Doof Dome’ equipped with a DJ that punters will be able to rave the night away in.

Also across the weekend include a ubiquitous Red Tin Tavern (locals will know), the ABBF Dive Bar, The Last Resort, Gilbert Street Hotel’s International Container and the return of a hidden bar that you will definitely want to find; Secret Pickle Saloon.
