This High Country event brings together like minded craft brewers and the local growers of that all important brewing ingredient, HOPS!
WELLINGTON & BEERVANA
An awesome 4-day/3-night tour exploring the best breweries, venues and beer events Wellington has to offer. Includes accommodation, 2 sessions at Beervana, New Zealand’s biggest beer festival, a full day Brewery Tour and VIP Dinner.
THU 9th – Arrive in Wellington and check in to accommodation. For those arriving early, your guide will be in town to show you around the city centre and grab a dinner somewhere.
FRI 10th – Today is Brewery Tour Day! After breakfast, we jump on a bus and head out of town for a full day exploring some of the best breweries in the Upper Hutt region, home of Panhead, Kereru and Te Aro to name a few. Includes behind the scenes tours, beer tasting and lunch. Then it’s back to Wellington to explore the cultural hub of Cuba St for dinner.
SAT 11th – Beervana Day! Today is a big day, with 2 sessions at Beervana, 11am-4pm and 6pm-11pm, where you can sample the beers from across New Zealand (and the world). Between sessions, we will head off to a chill-out venue to recharge for the evening session.
SUN 12th – After a recovery breakfast, you are free to explore Wellington. Maybe tackle some of the Breweries and bars on the Craft Beer Capital Trail (there’s 20 bars and 5 breweries in the city alone – our guide can help you find them). Or check out some of the fantastic museums and galleries, take a cruise on the harbour, or maybe a Lord of the Rings Tour.

SOMETIMES THINGS CHANGE – Because our tours are truly behind the scenes experiences sometimes our plans need to change to accommodate brewery operations. And sometimes we just know about beer goings on around town that are worth checking out, so we may change some parts of our tours. Whilst these changes are rare, we do reserve the right to make them. If you do have a MUST SEE beer spot, please let us know when making your booking and we’ll do all we can to make it happen.
