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. For its seventh edition there are 35 beer-focused events taking place across Wellington from 3-12 August.
For three days, Bach Brewing will attempt to recreate the magic of summer on the Rogue and Vagabond lawn. Regardless if the weather cooperates, there will be cans of suds served straight from the chilly bin, sun lamps humming to fill in for the actual sphere of hot plasma, a truckload of sand and straw hats.
On Thursday, 9 August, Tyson Smith and his band will assemble for a live set of surf rock.
