It's that time of the year again when we can take in some Beer Yoga and taste everything the craft community has to offer when Crafted Beer & Cider festival rolls into town.

This weekend get the crew together, grab a cold beverage in Kurrawa Park and get ready for a weekend of great beers, music and people, all the things Crafted has become known for.

A welcome addition to the line-up, sending their best from Collingwood, VIC on the froth front. They join a whopping 48 brewers with some of the already announced highlights, including local seltzer slingers Hard Fizz as they get fizzy at the festival in Local's Lane for the first time, alongside other big-hitting locals Black Hops Brewing, Lost Palms Brewing Co. and Currumbin Valley Brewing to name a few.

Something's been a-brewing for local, new kids on the block, Precinct Brewing Co, as they join with festival organisers to create exclusive brew Crafted x Precinct Festiv-Ale, a hazy pale ale full of tropical flavours – the perfect festival froth. The exclusive festival collab is one of 18 brews that will be pouring for the first time at Crafted.

To accompany the brews, the new music line up is absolutely stacked to the max with local vibe makers – bringing with them a whole lot of government-sanctioned dancing. The Gold Coast Music stage will be pumping with already announced Tassie rockers Luca Brasi, GC funk lords Electrik Lemonade and indie darlings Pure Milk. And now joining them will be Brissy alt-rock 4-piece and all-round bloody legends, SEMANTICS, who will bring their arm-in-arm power rock anthems to the stage, alongside beloved indie-rock outfit Chutney, Brisbane's energetic Flag Duty and local up-and-comers honeygum. As always, beatniks DJs will be spinning vinyl to keep the good vibes pouring all day.

Drop-in and check out the Blackflag & Young Henrys Skate Ramp. Watch on as the Sunshine Coast's Blackflag Brewing takes on southerners Young Henrys in the ultimate battle of brew vs brew and crew vs crew. In between rounds, festival organisers will serve up a range of froth-worthy festival activities. Show off your booze balancing skills in the inaugural Beer Paddle Race as you race your mates around a keg, trying not to spill a precious drop of your beers. Of course, all the Crafted faves are back, including ping pong competitions, beer yoga and the infamous Cycho's Hot Wing Eating Competition.
