A social outing has been arranged for Saturday 19 September 2020. The venue is 23 Blenheim Street, Maidstone, Upper Hutt 5018.
Brewtown Upper Hutt is Wellington’s only craft beer village with a number of great craft breweries and a boutique distillery. They’ve got passion for craft brewing and want to share it with us.
There's been a craft beer explosion throughout New Zealand, and the Hutt Valley is no exception. Brewtown has a long history of manufacturing and innovation, so it's no surprise that they have several breweries of their own. What started out as the Dunlop Tyres factory, has now become the hub of Upper Hutt.
You will also be able to take a photo with the old Dunlops sign that still sits proudly out front!
The team at Brewtown has spent years working with crafty brewers and restaurateurs to provide the best the Wellington craft beer scene has to offer in one place. They provide award-winning craft beer tastings with food to match. The breweries are Panhead, Boneface, Te Aro, Kereru, and WildKiwi Distillery and Good Goerge Brewery. This will be a night out for all you beer drinkers with wine and other drinks thrown in to suit all tastes.
The evening will start at 5.00 pm and probably last until about 9.00 pm. Dinner has been booked at Kuku Restaurant within the Brewtown complex. Kuku is associated with Kereru, one of five breweries in the complex.
One brewery has a distillery attached so the whiskey, gin, vodka, and rum aficionados will be well catered for too.
Car-pooling can be arranged so that designated drivers can be arranged.
