Bendigo Beer president Trevor Birks said ticket sales for the winter beer festival had been solid since the brewery line-up was announced in June.

“We are experiencing a last minute rush to grab the last tickets available for Saturday,” he said.

“As of Tuesday, there is about 400 to go which was similar to the same time last year. We sold out last year and we expect to go close again.”

The walkabout beer festival sees 28 craft beerbreweries take over 10 venues in the Bendigo CBD.

Mr Beebe’s,The Exchange, The Rifle, Handle Bar, The Gallery Caféand Grill’d have all sold out out their allocations.

There are limited spots available at Handle Bar, Rocks on Rosalind and Bendigo on the Hop’s two pop-up venues The Hub Pub (inSidney Myer Place) and Morley’s Laneway Party (next to the old Toyworld building).

“We are so excited to be doing something different like this for Bendigo On The Hop,” Mr Birks said.

“Morley’s is a laneway party for the Bendigo Blues and Roots Music Festival, so we’ve incorporated it into this event due to a lot of positive feedback.”

The strong ticket sales are encouraging for Bendigo Beer after their host ticketing siteused by the group last yearto sell tickets was hacked, resulting in ticket holders’ credit card details being used for fraudulent purchases.

Local outlet Capital Venues and Events has been selling tickets for this year’s festival through The Capital theatre’s box office.

Bendigo on the Hop will feature the top four breweries listed in craft beer blog the Beer Cartel’s national craft beer survey –Feral Brewing, Pirate Life, Stone &Wood and Bridge Road Brewers.

“Pirate Life are pretty much the rock stars of the festival, having taken the Australian beer industry by storm in the last 18 months so it’s great to have them coming across from Adelaide,” Mr Birks said.

“It’s also really pleasing to have all six local breweries (Brookes, 40 Acres, Castlemaine, Tooborac, Bandicoot and Holgate)in this year’s event which will show the expected 800 participants from Melbourne just how good beer is up here in Bendigo.”

Bendigo on the Hop is on Saturday, August 20, from 11am to 6pm.
