    Event description

    MUSIC TO YOUR BEERS!

    Join Bridge Road Brewers in beautiful Beechworth as we celebrate the Victorian hop harvest at The High Country Hop, Australia's favourite destination beer + music festival. 

    Returning to the village green, on Beechworth's Historic Precinct Reserve, you'll taste the freshest beers of the year, discover local winemakers, distillers and revel in an inspired musical lineup.

    The festival centres around the brewers of the Victorian high country, with a spotlight on a series of unique ales made using fresh, locally-sourced hops from the 2023 harvest. They'll be joined by some stars of the craft beer game both nationally and internationally! 

    What's a great drink without equally great music? We'll be revealing an inspired line-up for 2024.

    A festival food experience should never be grim, so, we're bringing in the heavy hitters - Hand-picking a selection of wholesome eats for all tastes.

    Whether you're looking for a weekender, a day trip or a chance to explore your backyard, The High Country Hop will provide you with a journey to remember.
