Beervana ticket sales open today

Visa pre-sales of Beervana open from 9am today (Wed 23 April). In its 13th year, Beervana will be held in Wellington on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 August at Westpac Stadium.

The premier New Zealand celebration of craft beer, more than 200 different beers will be on offer. Up to 12,000 people are expected to attend during two days of tasting, meeting brewers, beer seminars and enjoying food from some of Wellington’s best eateries.

Additionally, there will be judging of a home brewing competition, as well as a media brew competition, where media and brewers collaborate to create their own unique beer based around the theme of spring.

Festival Director, David Cryer, says the last year has seen continued strong growth in the sales and interest in craft beer. “Craft beer sales grew by 33% last year, with more than a dozen new craft brewers starting up in New Zealand in 12 months,” says David Cryer. “Beervana showcases all that’s new in craft beer, from many of the established and emerging breweries in New Zealand.”

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>
