If you're already fizzing with excitement for Beervana and can't hardly wait for August, then you're in luck: Christmas for beer geeks has come early, albeit in a pint-sized format.
This small-scale version of the annual beer festival will feature liquid refreshments from well-known and much-loved brewers from around New Zealand, plus tastings from UK favourites Thornbridge and Brewdog. Local eateries including The Larder and Salty Pidgin have created tasting menus that'll go perfectly with the beers on offer.
Your (regular-sized) ticket gets you unlimited beer tasters and five food tasters. And because they're taster-sized you'll be able to try a bit of everything and then go back and try your favourites again. Just to be sure — all in the name of Beervana preparation, eh.
