Brewoomba organisers 'dumb-founded' by 2017 crowds

JUST as beer styles and flavours evolve over time, so too does Toowoomba's beer festival Brewoomba.

Fitzy's owner Brad Fitzgibbons said he was "absolutely dumbfounded" and rapt with the amount of people who came and visited Tapestry, Fitzy's, The Spotted Cow and Blank Space on Saturday night.

He said the festival exceeded expectations and that many had been unsure about its future after the closure of The Mort Estate Hotel last year, but the crowd this year proved that the event was still "alive and well".


The Spotted Cow owner Phil Coorey was "just over the moon" and hoped patrons had as good of a time as it looked like they did.

He thanked event manager Dave Schenk and brewery representatives for their help.

"We can't thank Toowoomba enough for the way they've supported it and we're already planning next year's event," he said.
