With the Trans-Tasman bubble in place (fingers crossed), New Zealand's biggest beer festival is set to welcome back some Aussie brewers when it returns in August.
Beervana 2021 takes place on August 13 and 14, coinciding with Wellington On a Plate, when beer lovers will be able to tuck into a plethora of experimental, one-off festival beers and theatrical, interactive brewery stands.
Flying the flag for Australian beer are Boatrocker, Range, and Mountain Culture, with four more Aussies set to pour beers on the Kegstar Australia bar.
In total, there will be more than 75 beer and culinary exhibitors, in eight local breweries making their debuts: Cowabunga Brewing (Auckland), Derelict Brewing (Rangiora), Rhyme and Reason (Wanaka), The Beer Engine (Porirua), The Occasional Brewer (Wellington) The Emporium Brewing (Kaikoura), Three Sisters (New Plymouth) and Buzz Club Mead (Hawkes Bay).
Guests will also get to enjoy two live sound stages and street performances.
