About this event

Attention Beer, BBQ (and big truck) lovers … It’s time to leave the house and head to the Hunter for the Big RAM Beer & BBQ Festival.

Beer & BBQ … sometimes it’s the simple things in life which bring the greatest of pleasure. That’s why Hope Estate is delighted to announce that the Hunter Valley Beer & BBQ Festival is back in 2022 with the addition of a great partner in RAM Trucks.

Over two big days, Saturday28th and Sunday 29th May 2022, the festival will showcase all that’s great about Beer & BBQ. With over 40 varieties of Beer to taste there’s something for everyone. We’ve got IPAs, Lagers, Porters, Ciders and a range of increasing popular Sours for those who like to live adventurously. Also returning are sanctioned rounds of the Steak Cookoff Competition (Saturday) and Australasian BBQ Alliance Cookoff (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 the Festival. With such a broad appeal the Festival is expected to bring a volume of travellers to the valley all keen for a big weekend of smokers, roasters, spits, big trucks, amazing beer and BBQ delights … and, of course, the mechanical bull! The festival will also include a display by Ram Trucks Australia as well as some special guests running demonstrations and master classes. It’s going to be a great day out!

“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.

The festival will run from 10am-5pm on Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th May, 2022.
