Bitter & Twisted is a celebration of music, food and beer

There’s no better way to spend a day with your mates than celebrating good music, the best brews and delicious street food on the grounds of a former maximum security prison, Maitland Gaol.

Be the first to hear what will be happening in 2018 by signing up to the newsletter above.


With over 80 craft beers on offer, you’re guaranteed to find a new favourite brew. Ales, IPA’s, porters, stouts and specialty beers, there’s a drop to suit every taste.


We’re working on our greatest line up to date for 2018. We’ve always delivered the best tunes to wash your beer down with and 2018 will be no exception.


Food, glorious food! With the best prison food around from German sausages to a Mexican fiesta and everything in between, you won’t go home hungry.


Tickets for Bitter & Twisted are on sale now. Subscribe to our newsletter to be first to hear and stay up to date with what we’re doing.
