Craft beer, or “Beer” as it is known in Wellington, has gone mainstream and there’s no better place to ride the frothy wave than at New Zealand’s biggest and most popular beer festival. Beer is no longer a back yard 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.
