Before craft beer was even called ‘Craft Beer’ Matt Kirkegaard was sharing his passion for good beer and in a career spanning more than 15 years he has established himself as one of Australia’s most passionate beer advocates, writers and educators.

He is sought out as an event host and presenter across the country and in 2014 he was recognised as the first Australian Beer Writer of the Year at the Australian International Beer Awards. Although a beer writer, Matt’s greatest passion is sharing his love of beer hosting beer and food tastings around the country, reckoning that a taste of a great beer is worth a thousand written words. We are beer-y excited for Matt to return for this years’ festival, so make sure you join Matt for a tasting or masterclass and share his passion for a great beer!
