There was just no way to say no to this year’s Food & Wine Festival in Melbourne.  Last year a combination of too many choices (literally hundreds of events) and cost (most over $100pp) keep us on the sidelines.  This year, we choose carefully and wisely – Microbrew and Cider Showcase at Federation Sq.

Hundreds of local Victorian beer and a separate Cider Garden showcasing regional apple, pear and assorted fruit blends… just $25 admission got you a whopping twenty 60ml tastings.  Spitoons aside, that’s 1,200ml of goodness!
