Brew of Islands craft beer festival is set to take place on July 26 and 27, 2024.

Following the success of last year’s inaugural event, Brew of Islands 2024 will feature craft brews from 10 breweries spanning from the Bay of Islands to Wellington

This year’s line-up includes renowned names such as Parrotdog, Garage Project and Urbanaut, alongside local favourites like Kainui Brew Co., Phat House, McLeods, and 8 Wired.

Plus this year’s festival will welcome Pacific Coast Brewing from Mangawhai and Panhead from Upper Hutt to the line-up.

Festival organisers Tyler Bamber and Gerry Paul, both dedicated beer enthusiasts, have curated a festival that celebrates not only exceptional craft beer but also the unique Northland experience and manaakitanga for which the region is renowned.

For those looking for alternatives to beer, Ben Thrippleton from Kindred Spirits is back with a handcrafted cocktail selection.

Tyler Bamber describes Brew of Islands as the ultimate destination for beer enthusiasts and event-goers alike, boasting a carefully curated selection of brews and multiple different zones; the great beer hall, the live music zone and a nightclub.
