The Great Kiwi Beer Festival 2023 is the premier celebration of the stories and faces behind New Zealand's booming craft beer industry. Staged in Christchurch's Hagley Park in the height of Summer, the festival plays host to more than forty breweries, hailing from the far north to the deep south and everywhere in between. With more than 300 unique brews and ciders on tap all day, you'll be sure to find a drop that'll leave you craving more!

Our brewer's are joined by a hand-picked selection of Canterbury's heartiest street food stalls and a collection of premium restaurant features. Complemented by craft beer workshops, seminars, cooking demonstrations and immersive brand experiences, to name a few. Sip an ice-cool brew among the trees as the live music stage rounds out your hop-tastic brewing adventure.
