In light of the announcement today by the Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews, declaring Victoria in a state of emergency and on the back of the Government’s ban of non-essential gatherings of over 500 people, Good Beer Week has been carefully considering the ramifications of holding our festival on May 15-23.
