Dave’s has joined with Beervana to bring beer fans an awesome 4 day/3 night festival trip exploring the best breweries, venues and beer event Wellington has to offer.  

Including 2 sessions at Beervana 2018 – New Zealand’s biggest beer festival, local beer dinner, a full day Brewery Tour in regional Wellington and a heap of other beer goodness, this trip is overflowing with good times and surely one not to be missed!


THU 9th – Make your own way to Wellington and kick off the tour with an informal pub/bar/brewery visit in Wellington.  Your guide will be in town early to scout out the best spots and you’re free to tag along.

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. (Possible Frisbee Golf tournament with our group too). Then it’s back to Wellington for a welcome 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, your guide will meet you and take you to a local restaurant to refuel and cleanse your palates nearby.

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 galleries, take a cruise on the harbour, or maybe explore the Te Papa Museum. Additional option En route to the airport to stop in and visit Parrot Dog Brewery.

*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.
