George FM is proud to be the presenting radio partner for New Zealand’s biggest and most popular beer festival this August, Beervana.
Beer is no longer a backyard BBQ brew, we now brew from Whangarei to Invercargill, with lemongrass, lychees and brettanomyces and we bring it together in one big beer hug right here in Wellington every August. Held at Wellington Stadium over two days Beervana is most certainly a thirst quencher and with the amount of a visual and interactive activity happening all over the concourse it’s also a feast for the eyes. From outrageous brewery displays to silent discos, colourful beer cocktails to cheeseburger spring rolls it’s Willy Wonka for beer lovers.
The Road To Beervana is a ten day national celebration of all things New Zealand beer, organised by the Wellington Culinary Events Trust (WCET) who, also manages New Zealand’s largest craft beer event Beervana. Beervana brings 14,500 beer lovers to Wellington to sample over 400 beers from 60 brewers at Westpac Stadium.
The Road To Beervana is an extension of the two day extravaganza that is Beervana. It begins the Friday a week prior to Beervana and showcases attending brewers travelling from the North and the South Islands to attend the event. Leaving in convoy from their region of origin and driving to adjoining provinces sees them collect fellow attending brewers along the road, whilst visiting key good beer venues to host “pop” up events during their visit.
Events will include
- Tastings, dinners, takeovers, pop-ups, bar shouts, collaboration beers. The options are up to the participants imaginations.
- “Pit Stops” hosted by partnering venues/sponsors.
- Visits to iconic New Zealand landmarks and experiences.
Events range from price on consumption to awesome ticketed beer tours and dinners
10 - 11 August
