Big things are brewing in the Mighty Waikato!
The Great Kiwi Beer Festival lands at Claudelands Events Centre for the inaugural North Island edition on Saturday, 7 March 2020.
Join us for a day dedicated to the celebration of our love affair with the amber nectar! More than 40 craft breweries and cider producers will be pouring over 300 different drops, so there will be something to please every palate.
Compliment the brews with a delectable selection of meals and snacks from an eclectic selection of local foodies.
With dozens of interactive workshops and beer tasting seminars, plus an awesome lineup of great Kiwi artists on the Music Stage, the Great Kiwi Beer Festival is a day dedicated to great craft beers, good mates and fun in the sun.
The Great Kiwi Beer Festival’s VIP Experience presents unrivalled flavour, palate twisting, hop-forward brews and a relaxed indoor-outdoor experience.
Sit back and relax in the exclusive VIP Area and be treated to big gourmet flavours prepared right in front of you! Alongside the cuisine, you can enjoy dozens of premium craft beer, ciders, wine and non-alcoholic options on tap throughout the day to provide the flavour refresh from many of the onsite breweries.
