Bright Brewery hosts first Darker Days festival on July 1, 2017

A NEW festival celebrating Victoria's alpine winter will set Bright alight on July 1. 

Darker Days will toast the season and welcome the return of lighter days after the winter solstice. 

The festival will be centred around dark beers, cider and warming foods.  

Bright Brewery marketing manager James Davidson said Darker Days would be “a celebration of winter”. 

“We'll be gathering around multiple fires to make damper and to roast marshmallows and chestnuts, with local wordsmiths and poets to tell campfire tales.” 

Darker Days runs from 1pm until 10pm.
