We regret to announce that the 2022 Central Otago Craft Beer Festival has been cancelled.

We would loved to have run what was to be our 9th event, but with restrictions due to Covid and a couple of larger Craft Beer Festivals around the same Waitangi Weekend, we decided it would be best to cancel.

We are sorry to all our faithful followers and visitors who may have been looking forward to some Central fun, but we hope to see you all in 2023!

Cheers to you all and please stay safe.

Craft Beers & Local Wines

Central Otago is celebrating our growing Craft Beer industry. We bring local, regional and guest brewers to Pioneer Park to tempt your tastebuds. We also invite local wineries to compliment the beers on hand and together brewers and wineries offer a range of tasteful and satisfying libations. Cider lovers are not forgotten either with some of our brewers turning the regions apple crop into fulsome ciders.
