Learn all things brewing in the Brew Zone

Thanks to our sponsors, you'll have the opportunity to learn about the ingredients and process involved in making craft beer. We'll also have a range of home-brewers showing off their homebrew systems, perfect inspiration if you are thinking about getting set up to make your own beer at home.


Open from the start of Marchfest until 5pm, check the map for location

We have a range of craft brewers taking turns on the microphone to talk about Wild, Sour and Farmhouse brewing. All of this is FREE as part of your entry ticket.

Each talk will be around 20 minutes long, with 5-10 minute Q&A after each - check out the schedule below
