Hāpi Symposium returns after three-year hiatus

After a successful debut in 2019, the Hāpi Symposium is returning in March 2023.

The Symposium at Te Papa on Friday 24 March brings together the world’s leading craft brewers, fermentation scientists and hop chemists to share insights with more than 300 industry professionals.

Led by Hāpi Research – a collaboration between MPI, Freestyle Farms and Garage Project – the Symposium is a curated day of talks from visiting international brewers, scientists and guest presenters.

The day will cover the latest research from the hop world, brewing techniques, and experiences from breweries and other industries.

They will be informative, inspiring and foster connections between international craft brewers together with New Zealand brewers to learn, share and develop ideas around the Hāpi Research breeding efforts.

Speakers include Jeremy Moynier from Stone Brewing, Laura Burns from Omega Yeast and Dave Dunbar from Freestyle Hops – all from the USA.

The Hāpi Symposium coincides with the annual hop harvest and CubaDupa – New Zealand’s largest outdoor arts and music festival.
