Beervana Road to Beervana





With 300+ beers on-tap for Beervana 2020, festival participants got to try a huge assortment of delicious beers, ciders, wines, meads and... seltzers. Beervana celebrates the incredible NZ craft beer industry where breweries get to showcase their talent and creativity to beer lovers from all around the country. 

The People Choice Awards is a way to give back recognition to these breweries for all the hard work they've put into their craft. Using the Beervana app by Paperkite, punters were able to rate and leave a comment on the drinks they've tried for each session! People's choice would then be announced at the end of each session.
