Bitter and Twisted Boutique Beer Festival returns to Maitland Gaol this November

Bitter and Twisted Boutique Beer Festival will return to Maitland Gaol this November.

Middle Kids will headline the music bill for Saturday and four-piece roots collective The Beautiful Girls will headline Sunday’s program.

Joining our headline acts on the Bitter and Twisted 2022 lineup are Good Lekker, soul ska group Fat Picnic, as well as The Dead Maggies, Liquid Zoo, Austin Mackay, Chris Cavill and Newcastle-based singer-songwriter BERLYN.

“After a two-year hiatus, we can’t wait to be back at Maitland Gaol this November,” Maitland City Council Team Leader Events Tori Evans said.

“Bitter and Twisted has certainly cemented its place on the annual events calendar for fans of great music and people passionate about quality craft beer. Where else in Australia can you enjoy over 80 craft beers and your favourite tunes in a former maximum security prison?”

In addition to the music and craft beer, there is a range of food stalls and other activities across the event site, as well as add-ons that visitors can purchase to make their day even more memorable. These include Beer Trivia, Private Cell Blocks for you and your best mates and Beer and Cheese Matching sessions, just to name a few.

Bitter and Twisted is an 18+ only event on Saturday 5 November, with all ages (accompanied by an adult) permitted on Sunday 6 November. Tickets for the event go on sale at midday tomorrow (Friday 5 August). Visit to find out more.
