Seminar line up for Beervana 2014

Craft beer lovers will have an opportunity to extend their knowledge and enjoyment of beer through a range of seminars on offer at Beervana this year, during two days of celebrations in Wellington on 22 and 23 August at New Zealand’s premier craft beer show.

Festival Director David Cryer says that the seminars are an integral part of the Beervana offering. “Through the seminars attendees can experience Beervana at different levels, whether it’s about extending their knowledge of brewing, or how to pair beer with food, or having the opportunity to taste award winning craft beers from other parts of the world,” says David Cryer. “There is something for everyone with an interest in craft beer.”

The inaugural Taste of Portland seminars offer a chance for attendees to meet the brewers and try the beers of the World Beer Cup Medal Winners from Portland: Gigantic Brewing Company; Commons Brewing; and Widmer Brothers. Portland-inspired culinary delights to go with their beers will be presented by specialist beer chef Paul Kasten, also from Portland.

The very popular Home Brewing Masterclass series is back again also. Led by some of New Zealand’s leading brewers: Mike Neilson from Panhead Custom Ales; Kelly Ryan from Fork Brewing; Jo Wood from Liberty; and Luke Nicholas from Epic, attendees get to learn some interesting brewing techniques on the art and science of brewing to the highest level.

Just a few tickets remain for the Beer and Cheese seminars being run by local cheese expert Wendy Adams as she shares a range of beer and cheese pairings and gives insights on the influence of terroir on their resulting flavour profiles.

A few tickets are still available for the Ultimate Experience package. This package gives attendees exclusive early access to a VIP area at Beervana, along with an exclusive opportunity to sample some specialty craft beers, while being hosted by a top New Zealand brewer and one of the visiting brewers from Portland. $50 of festival currency is included in the package also.

Seminar tickets range in price with detailed information here: http://beervana.co.nz/tickets/

Note: all include a general Beervana entry ticket except for the Taste of Portland which needs to be purchased in addition to the general entry ticket.
