Is it the purity of the water, the skill of the crafts men and women behind these brews, our fabulous Central Otago, South Island or New Zealand climate? Whatever the factor, there are some wonderful local and guest beers on tap and we have 11 of them at this years event plus a dedicated cider stall, what will be your favourite brew from those on sale?
To help you decide, we will be giving all eligible visitors a free eco friendly cup and tasting card. This will let you sample one beer of your choice from all beer and cider vendors to see if there is something different that you would like to try. Upon choosing your taster, your cup will be filled with a small amount of beer to see if you like the taste, the vendor will stamp your card and you can decide if that is the brew to buy. Please be aware that this does not apply to any wines or food on sale and you can only sample one beer from each vendor. It's a 200ml cup...don't expect it to be filled though!
