We have two words for you: Beer. Festival. No, your vision has not failed you—your two loves have come together to form the GABS Beer, Cider and Food Fest and it’s coming to Auckland! That’s right. We’re talking a festival that’s all about the beer and cider. No mucking around. All you have to do is drink it all.

It’s time to look on the bright cider life! This Beer, Cider and Food Fest is heading to Auckland on Friday 16th to Saturday 17th June. US magazine The Beer Connoisseur has rated this festival as “one of the best beer festivals in the world.” So, we’re excidered! (lol we tried)

Some of the world’s best brewers and cider makers from Australia and New Zealand will be here to meet all your needs. What’s even cooler? It’s all served from 40ft shipping containers converted into bars all for your drinking pleasure. The ‘Kegtainer’ bars will have up to 80 special brewed Festival Beers & Ciders for this event! So the options are actually endless. We may have to set up a tent at the venue (no regrets).

We're sold at the beer and cider, but the guys at GABS Beer, Cider and Food Fest are taking it to the next level. They’ll have live performances and acrobats above your head, along with circus performances on the mini stages.

Oh, and what’s a festival without any food? All the coolest food trucks are bringing their treats along. From Double Dutch, Fritz’s Weiners to White Lady burgers. All that’s left to answer is—how do you like ‘em apples?


When: Friday 16 June—Saturday 17 June 2017
Where:  ASB Showgrounds, Greenlane
