Bitter & Twisted Boutique Beer Festival

Overview

The Bitter and Twisted Boutique Beer Festival, affectionally known as Bitter and Twisted is a festival of all the great things in life – music, food and most obviously… beer. Held annually on the first weekend in November, Bitter and Twisted is held within the walls of the former maximum security prison, Maitland Gaol.

You can expect over 80 craft beers to be on show, an eclectic range of music and entertainment as well as delicious food choices from all over the world. For all the beer connoisseurs (let’s be honest, geeks) there is a variety of beer appreciation options including meeting local brewers, food and beer matching and beer education.

For everyone else, you can sit back and enjoy the show on the main stage, dance around the exercise yard, explore the cells, spot the roving entertainers, indulge in the food and markets or try some of the alternatives, with wine and ciders also on offer.

Bitter and Twisted is the only way you should ever be behind bars and they look forward to and welcome all sorts of new and returning inmates.
