Lambagreeny. Armageddon. Swinelager. Not beers you would generally find down at the local supermarket but just a sample of the boutique brews being served up at the Beervana festival last week.
The consumer tasting and education event, held at the overseas terminal, allowed the public an opportunity to sample some of New Zealand’s finest and more exotic beers on offer.
Breweries from all over New Zealand were present to show off and talk up their particular tipple, but it was the tasting in the end that really spoke for itself.
Plenty of food was on hand to soak up the drink and top chef Martin Bosley along with beer expert Neil Miller provided food and beer cooking demonstrations to curious crowds during the two nights.
