After two long years, April 2022 marked the triumphant return of Victoria Beer Week. Many brewers, owners, and industry heavyweights were present, happy to chat and eager to show off their new brews. Humans are social beings and beer is the great facilitator of socialising and community. If there is a beer event being held near you, I would suggest you take a chance and go, because if it is anything like Victoria Beer Week 2022 was for me, you won’t regret it.
