Beer awards to name NZ's best brewer

  • 19/09/2015

Beer lovers will be on the edge of their cheers this weekend, awaiting who will be named the country's best brewer.

Wellington may be considered the beer capital, but the 2015 Beer Awards are being held in Auckland for the first time.

Previous events have followed on from Wellington's Beervana beer festival, but Brewers Guild members felt it was prudent to put some recovery time between the two.

Two days of seminars will culminate in the awards dinner tonight, which will reveal which is the best local brewery, manufacturer, international brewery, beer writer and the best in dozens of beer style categories.
