“In 1980 there were only 3 Craft Breweries in New Zealand. In 2011 there were over 50, trending much #craftbeer!”
Now in its sixth year, Nelson's unique craft beer and music festival will take place on 6 April 2013 at Founders Park.
Attractions this year include:
Beer and Food Matching Gourmet Lunch in the Granary: Marchfest beers will be matched with tasty dishes by Lincoln of Blinc Catering. Tickets are $80 and are available on a limited basis from Cue: 03 546 6339 | firstname.lastname@example.org
The Marchfest Hop Ballot: Brewers of the Marchfest beers will be drawing a hop type out of a hat and brewing a beer for Marchfest 2014 from that hop. Hops will be supplied by NZ Hops in Appleby.
The Marchfest Guest Beer Bonanza: For the first time in the event’s history, beer outlets in Nelson will be part of the event by taking part in the "Marchfest Guest Beer Bonanza". 18 local bars, pubs and restaurants will be serving one of the Marchfest beers as a "guest beer tap" for a few weeks after April 6th.
