For ten days every year, Road to Beervana shows the national beer community how it's done with paired dinners, featured breweries, interactive themed bars, collaborations and general ex-beer-iences. It's all in the lead up to the country's largest craft beer festival, Beervana, a giant craft beer celebration held over two days at Westpac Stadium.
Auckland's Sweat Shop Brew Kitchen's will host its First Annual Beer Festival before heading off to the main event. On Saturday, 4 August, Sweat Shop's head brewer Paddy Molloy will host a showcase of brewers from Auckland and beyond to chat and drink all things beer. Breweries already signed up to appear include Tuatara, Black Dog, Sawmill, Hallertau, Outlier Cartel, Colab Brewing and Sparks.
There will also be food matches from the kitchen and live entertainment by White Chapel Jak.
