NZ Craft Beer Symposium coming soon

Over 20 venues across Australia are taking part in this year’s New Zealand Craft Beer Symposium, which is being held between Wednesday 3rd and Monday 8th February.

The events over the Waitangi Day weekend of Saturday February 6 will bring some of the best craft beers from talented independent New Zealand breweries to Australia for one weekend of Kiwi craft beer goodness.


Breweries featured will include Epic, Garage Project, Hop Federation, Liberty, Panhead, ParrotDog, Renaissance, Tuatara, Yeastie Boys and 8 Wired.

“The definition of a symposium is to drink and talk and in this case we will be drinking and talking about quality NZ Craft beer,” organiser Paul Stieglbauer says.

“Our Motueka hops are sought after across the globe and export quantities of New Zealand craft beer are growing at an alarming rate given the thirst for new world brews led by the majority of brewers featured in this wee event.”
