Heaven for traveling hops heads is this two-day beer festival held in August in New Zealand
's capital city. Excellent Wellington brewers like Garage Project, ParrotDog, and Panhead have been key to inspiring New Zealand's superb craft-beer scene, and other brewers from around the country and further afield—usually including Australia
and the United States—gather to present always bold and innovative beers. Beervana is held in the middle of a Wellington winter, so wrap up warmly and look forward to keeping nourished at some of the city's best food trucks. Usually the festival vibe continues on to local beer-centric bars like Hashigo Zake and the Fork & Brewer.
