Despite the much loved Beerfest having featured unaffected by COVID-19 as part of the event calendar since 2011, this year's celebration still left organisers happy with proceedings.
The events took on a new look with three different formats scattered around town for the festivities and Melanie Smith, who has worked as part of the Beerfest team since its inauguration said the 2020/21 celebration went as well as could be hoped.
"It turned out really well. People never let COVID dampen their spirits. Everyone had a really good time celebrating the end of 2020," she said.

She said Tasmania Police patrolled the venues and said they were impressed by how sensibly revellers had carried themselves.
Ms Smith said all three venues had received a huge reception from attendees with the Riverbend celebration selling out and the Royal Park and Esplanade festivities selling almost all available tickets prior to the event.
"It was about 2000 people at each event," she said.
"Obviously it was less than what we could do in previous years but it was a really good turn out."
