Blobfish Beer Festival

24 August, 2019, 11:30 am - 4:30 pm

| 75$

BLOBFISH – a beer festival celebrating all things sour, funky and wild.

Join us for Australia’s first beer festival dedicated to these unique beers. Like the blobfish, they emerge from the depths of the beer scene – intriguing, slightly obscure, somewhat unknown but always exciting. Melbourne’s iconic Meat Market will host 16 breweries from across Australia, plus a handful from overseas. Over two sessions on Saturday 24 August, it will include a special festival restaurant, oyster bar, premium cheese, a bottleshop for unique takeaways, live acoustic music, natural wine, and more.


  • Session one: 11.30am-3pm
  • Session two: 4.30pm-8pm

This is an event for you whether you’re already a big fan of beer or if you’re wanting to try something new. Learn about barrel programs, chat to brewers, eat delicious food, listen to great music – alongside some of the best craft beer coming out of Australia.

  • entry to the festival
