Armidale’s Rusden Street car park was filled on Saturday afternoon with people enjoying drinks and live music.
The inaugural Forage Fest attracted plenty of locals, as well as music and beer enthusiasts from places such as Tamworth and Sydney.
The brainchild of The Welder’s Dog, the festival has brought together 17 craft beer breweries from around Australia.
The Welder’s Dog was joined by other local outlets New England Brewery, the Deepwater Brewery and Great Hops, and bigger labels like Stone and Wood.
While the second floor of the car park is filled with brewery stands, the rooftop included a stage and a long line-up of DJs and artists.
Headlining the festival is Kasey Chambers, who was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame last week.
