Basin beer festival set to be a hit
Wellington’s brand new beer festival, Beers at the Basin, is already proving to be a hit with punters before it has even begun.
To be held at the iconic Basin Reserve on Saturday 9 December, organisers say ticket sales are steadily climbing and expected to reach 4,500-5,000 by event day, a number that the participating breweries are excited about.
Event Manager Thomas Buchanan knows that the crowds are in for a treat.
“We’re stoked with the interest received so far – it’s an awesome concept at a great venue, and we knew we were on to a great thing when we had such good feedback so quickly after announcing. Everything is coming together nicely, and we’ve put extra measures in place to ensure that everyone is catered for – now we just have to trust that Wellington will put on a day of sunshine for us and we’ll be all set!”
While some ticket levels have sold out, there are still a limited number of general admission options available, with corporate group packages on request.
The festival will feature a premium selection of local and national breweries, from Auckland-based The Sawmill Brewery and Urbanaut Brewing Co, to newcomers to the Wellington scene, Whistling Sisters and Heyday.
Attendees will also be able to choose from a range of ciders, wines, and non-alcoholic drinks alongside an extensive selection of street food from some of the region’s favourite vendors.
An exceptional line-up of musicians including headliners The Phoenix Foundation rounds out what looks to be a day of quality entertainment for all.
