The Craft Beer buzz has spread and made it all the way over to little old New Zealand, meaning Queenstown has jumped on the band wagon with locals and tourists alike enjoying the perfect brew.

From heavy chocolate stouts to fruity summer ales the inaugural Queenstown Summer Beer Festival has it all. The Festival held on the 14th January at the Queenstown Recreation Ground brings together a mix of local and guest breweries to showcase New Zealand’s budding craft beer scene.

 

Entry to this family friendly event is $35 which includes a branded eco-friendly tasting glass that gives you a free tasting at one of the breweries. Take the family down and enjoy local and international brews including cider, as well as live music and a variety of food vendors.
