Maitland Gaol

Bitter & Twisted Boutique Beer Festival

Join us at the Bitter & Twisted Boutique Beer Festival as we celebrate beer, music and food in the grounds of Maitland Gaol.

Bitter & Twisted has cemented its place on the craft beer calendar as a unique and quirky festival, offering over 80 craft beers from around the country.

Bitter & Twisted is one of the flagship events on Maitland’s annual calendar, attracting 5,000 visitors each year.

Maitland Gaol is a former maximum security prison and an iconic destination for both tourists and locals alike, so we are proud to have it as the home of Bitter & Twisted.

The event features beer stalls offering tastings from some of the best Australian craft breweries, a number of food stalls selling gourmet cuisine from across the globe and selected general stalls will also be selling quality merchandise including arts, crafts and local produce.
