Brewing in South Canterbury - Explore the Past, Taste the Present

Since 1864 there have been 16 breweries in the South Canterbury Region. Come hear the fascinating history of their growth and development with local beer (and rugby) historian Jeremy Sutherland. Jeremy is a fantastic speaker who will bring the journey to life.

Matching the fantastic commentary will be a 5 course meal, with tasters from each of the five remaining local breweries. Come along and sample Dark Ales, Pilsners, XPA's, Pale Ales, & Blackberry Coffee & Chocolate Porters expertly paired with mouth watering dishes by our chef Richard.

A big shout out to the local breweries Valley Brewing Co, Burke Brewing, Ship Hop, Hunter Hills, and DB Breweries for taking part!

Get your crew together and book a table. There will be a courtesy van available. $60 per person. Bookings essential.
