Bintani New Kids On the Block 2021

Every year Beervana showcases a beer lover’s paradise of breweries from the big players to the small, local microbreweries, from the founders of “craft” to the Bintani new kids on the block. 

To help the newer and smaller breweries making their way into the New Zealand industry. Beervana welcomes them to the festival to introduce them to 16,000 beer drinkers by providing the stand, buying the beers to pop on tap and inviting the Bintani New Kids On the Block breweries to come and pour to the Good Beer drinking public of New Zealand.

This is an opportunity for new and smaller breweries who have opened in the previous year since the last Beervana and give them the opportunity to show off their beers and let beer drinkers. 

This year Beervana is stoked to have Bintani on board as the sponsor of the New Kids On the Block stand, which can be found in Aisle 1.

Bintani is a wholesale distributor proudly offering a wide range of the world’s highest quality ingredients for brewing, distilling, beverage, and food manufacturing. 

Richard Robb, Bintani NZ Sales Manager, said supporting the Bintani New Kids on The Block bar at Beervana was the perfect fit for them as, with more than 25 years experience, Bintani has made its name supporting businesses with technical expertise and the finest products from its partners around the globe. 

“We’re really looking forward to pouring beer from a few exciting new brewers that wouldn’t have been at Beervana this year, otherwise,” he said. 

Now let’s get about introducing you to Beervana’s Bintani New Kids On the Block for 2021! 


Deep Creek Stall #1 and 10th Birthday

Where did time go??! Auckland brewery, Deep Creek, is turning 10 this year - and to celebrate, it has snagged the coveted number one stall spot on the Beervana concourse! Which means you’ll be starting the party with them when you stroll into Sky Stadium on 13-14 August.

We chatted to Deep Creek’s Brand Representative, Scott Taylor, about the brewery’s plans to celebrate it’s milestone 10th birthday at Beervana in 2021 at Stall Tahi (spot of surfing, anyone?), as well as looking back on the brewery’s very first Beervana, its early days as a small brewpub in Brown’s Bay, and Scott’s former life as a model in the 90s (which has nothing to do with Deep Creek’s 10th birthday, but since we’re doing a retrospective, why the hell not?).
