OUR EVENTS

CANBERRA CRAFT BEER & CIDER FESTIVAL

The Canberra Craft Beer and Cider has been held successfully at the Schwartz Family Company owned Mercure Canberra yearly, since 2008. For its first year, the event was held over one day in September 2008. Canberra turned on the best weather, and the event was oversubscribed. The festival has grown steadily since its first year and continues to expand.

SFC is committed to heritage, whilst paving the way for innovation in the Brewing industry. This is achieved by inviting the best Breweries to exhibit their wares in accommodating and picturesque surroundings.

Through ownership of ideal venues such as Mercure Canberra, Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley and The Fairmont Resort in Leura, Schwartz Family Company are able to continue their support of the craft beer industry, whilst endeavouring to improve and expand their own portfolio.

CCBCF provides a great platform for beer enthusiasts and the whole family can enjoy the day, as there is indeed something for everyone.
