Lion provide all of the taps used on the Regional Bars, and Cider and Festive Brew bars at Beervana. Without their support we wouldn't be able to offer the range of beers we do, and we wouldn't be able to offer them on tap.

The good crew in their Tap Services team start assembling the event on Wednesday night and stay through all four sessions, working with our Beer Manager to make sure the brews flow smoothly during the event. They then have the mammoth task of packing down and cleaning all the gear and returning it to bars and venues throughout the country.

Lion's beverages can be found on the Mac's, Belgian Speciality, James Squires & Little Creatures, and Isaac's and Speight's Cider bars.

Williams Warn

The WilliamsWarn Personal Brewery is the miracle that beer drinkers have been praying for. After 5000 years of brewing, the technology finally exists to allow you to brew the perfect beer at home or at your workplace.

The product was invented by Ian Williams, New Zealand's first qualified brewmaster, and the winner of the world's best lager beer at the Brewing Industry International Awards in 1998 with a Tiger Beer he brewed in China.

The WilliamsWarn makes cold, clear, perfectly carbonated commercial quality beer in 7 days, like a modern brewery, eliminating all the errors of homebrewing. This was proven when Santiago Aon won the Gold Medal for Pilsner, at the Asia Beer Awards 2012, with his 3rd brew in his WilliamsWarn, beating 45 of the world's biggest and most famous breweries. This was the first time a homebrewer had ever beaten a full- scale brewery in a beer tasting competition.

So if you'd like to easily brew the different types of beers you can taste at Beervana, check out the Campbell Live video about that here:
