Calling all beer, BBQ (and big truck) lovers for the Big RAM Beer & BBQ Festival. Over two big days, Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th May 2022, the festival will showcase all that’s great about beer & BBQ. With over 50 varieties of beer to taste there’s something for everyone. There’ll be IPAs, lagers, porters, ciders and a range of increasingly popular sours for those who like to live adventurously. Also returning are sanctioned rounds of the Steak Cookoff Competition (Saturday) and Australasian BBQ Alliance Championship (Sunday) as well as an array of BBQ food vendors – think smoked ribs, brisket and lamb on a spit.

New event partners RAM Truck Australia will bring an extra attraction to this big weekend of smokers, roasters, spits, big trucks, amazing beer and BBQ delights and of course the mechanical bull!

“This year’s festival is shaping up to be a “cracker” with RAM joining as our event partner. We had great feedback from year one and RAM’s involvement this year promises to add that extra wow for the guests … I can’t wait”, said Hope Estate’s owner Michael Hope.

Taste the beer, talk to the brewers, watch the BBQ masters at work, see the big trucks up close and learn in one of the masterclasses or just kick back, relax and listen to the live music all while enjoying the beautiful surrounds of Hope Estate.
