THE ONLY thing better than a crisp beer on a scorcher is a number of different brews in the one place.
Enter Brewfest 2019, Tamworth's answer to Oktoberfest and a chance to sample the work of about 24 different brewers.
This year, organiser Kandice Croser expects 1,500 people through the door.
"We try to support local with New England Brewing Co, Great Hops and Welders Dog along with our own activation the Royal Standard Brewery," she said.
"People should expect a bit of a workout getting around to all the tents but it's about trialling and finding that perfect brew for them.
"It's a day to relax for everybody and kids are welcome so parents don't have to miss out."
The Jimmy Craz Band will entertain on Saturday, with beer workshops and beer-infused meals on offer.
Brewfest starts at 5pm at Scully Park, tickets available through Wests Tamworth Leagues Club.
