“In 1980 there were only 3 Craft Breweries in New Zealand. In 2011 there were over 50, trending much #craftbeer!”
Beervana is back again in 2013 and will take place on Friday 9 & Saturday 10 August 2013. Wellington's Westpac Stadium will again play host to New Zealand’s premier craft beer celebration, with over 200 craft beers on offer, the opportunity to meet many of New Zealand’s best brewers in person and a home brewing competition.
Festival Director David Cryer says that some of the country’s finest craft beer brewers will be showcased at Beervana. “Consumer interest in craft beer continues to grow strongly. Beervana caters to that growing interest by providing opportunities meet brewers and to taste craft beers from around the country, including some of the one-off Festive Brews created especially for the beer awards being held just a few days before Beervana.”
Through the guidance of Beervana’s Culinary Director Martin Bosley, attendees will also be able to enjoy food created by some of the capital’s best chefs and pair that with recommended craft beer matches.
For those who would like to discover more, there will be entertaining and informative seminars on offer, including sessions on how to brew your own beer.
As in previous years the event will be held over two days consisting of two four-hour sessions per day. Tickets available now.
Information for exhibitors, sponsors, volunteers and media is available on the Beervana website.
