Bringing together the country’s brewers and industry for a week of: Connection. Inspiration. Accolades. And beer.

It’s becoming more and more clear: good business is good for business.

This year’s theme for #BREWNZ is A Sustainable Future: Caring for our people and our planet. The conference will be a chance to explore new ways to meet the challenges that our industry face on the path toward a more sustainable future.

From water disposal to recycling to mental health, this is chance to come together, share our learnings and look for ways to work together towards solutions that benefit the industry as a whole.

Brewery Tours

BREWNZ is in a new location each year.  This means that there is a new opportunity to #ExperienceKiwiBeer in each city. 

Our Brewery Tours are a unique opportunity for industry to get together and enjoy the product we so lovingly craft in the places that its made.  Its the one time each year folks from across the supply chain get to relax and enjoy from the other side of the bar.

Our Brewery Tours sell out in record time each year and we anticipate that being in the self designated 'Craft Capital' will mean that they will once again be in hot demand. 

We're cooking up some great options so stay tuned!


Mashing In

The kick off event for this years' BREWNZ2019 will be at the Museum of Wellington - City and Sea. 

The Brewing industry tell us that they love Mashing In because it is one of the only nights of the year they get to catch up with folks from all across New Zealand in a casual and private environment.
