The 2019 edition of the Malta Craft Beer Festival will include not just a huge range of the best brews from global breweries, but also a series of engaging workshops, and delicious street food and sweets from vendors including Manouche, Fork & Cork, Kuya & Co, and the Pulled Meat Company.

What’s more, the awesome live music throughout the festival will include performances from Airport Impressions, Xarulu, The Busker, Lighthouse, Vinyl Paradise and Aunty’s Yellow Sofa.

This year, the festival will also feature an all-new pop-up shop packed with beers and merchandise for festival-goers to purchase and take home as mementos.

“We are thrilled to be returning to Fort St Elmo for another edition of the Malta Craft Beer Festival, following the huge success of last year’s first edition,” says the Festival’s Robert Gatt, who co-founded the festival with Samuele D'Imperio. “Last year we saw quite how much passion and talent there is regarding craft beer in Malta, and so it’s satisfying to be able to give brewers and enthusiasts another chance to grow the local industry even further.”

Apart from unforgettable entertainment, food, and of course, exceptional craft beers, the festival will also incorporate a homebrewers’ competition aimed at budding local brewers, as well as a masterclass by a brewer from the AleBrowar brewery in Poland, who will be visiting Malta specifically for the festival.
