Craft beer, or “Beer” as it is known in Wellington, has gone mainstream and there’s no better place to ride the frothy wave than at New Zealand’s most popular beer festival. It’s no longer a back yard BBQ brew. Now we’re brewing from Whangarei to Invercargill, with lemongrass, lychees and brettanomyces. And we’re bringing you it all right here in Wellington this August.
Beervana is when the craft beer capital embraces the New Zealand-wide beer loving community in a big bearded beer hug. 2016 will be best and biggest in the event’s 15 year history. This year it is all about discovery and collaboration – interactive themed bars, innovative collaborations and all paired with damn good food. There will be around 60 breweries serving up 300 different beers as well as bars dedicated our sister city in beer Portland, and exclusive sour beer and IPA bars. It’s the best way to discover everything that is wonderful about good beer all in one place.
Held at Wellington Stadium over two days, Beervana brings together the country’s congregation of craft beer enthusiasts to taste, reflect on and explore the hoppy drop in all its glory.
