Massive beer festival promises good vibes and small lines

A SUPERSIZED beer and cider festival is coming to the Big Pineapple showcasing 30 breweries with more than 100 taps.

The Big Pineapple Craft Beer and Cider Expo promises the same vibes as their legendary music festivals, but with a focus on all things cold and frothy.

The day will run from midday to 9pm on September 14 with general admission tickets priced at $25.

VIP tickets are available and include access to a fully catered beer garden with a security guard and private bathrooms.

Wine, cocktails and a large selection of non-alcoholic drinks including turmeric ginger beer, double sarsaparilla, creaming soda, nitro coffee and kombucha will also be on offer.

More than 10 food trucks will be serving up slow cooked meats, burgers, Kenilworth cheeses, Italian, Mexican and German food and even crocodile, kangaroo and emu meats.

An incredible musical line up is also on the menu with Juzzie Smith, OKA, Flaskas and The Vanns set to take the stage.

A collaboration brew to support the Young Veterans charity will be on offer at a number of events in the lead up to the expo.

Glass House Brewery, Strawberry Fields, Hot91 and Craft Beer and Cider Sunshine Coast teamed up for the brew with proceeds to go towards the charity which supports returned service people living locally and throughout southeast Queensland.
