Parrotdog beer tasting

The Parrotdog craft beer tasting at our awards dinner on Day 2 is not to be missed.

Parrotdog was conceived in 2011 out of a love for good beer by three guys called Matt. From their brewery in Lyall Bay, Wellington, they’re continuing to do what they started back then: making approachable, award winning beer. Quality and simplicity form the basis for their mantra in keeping things uncomplicated.

Their range is a diverse cast of characters, with something to suit every one of you, and every one of us. Nice. Parrotdog’s unique point-of-difference as an independent brewery is their ability to produce everything under one roof. Their production facility in Lyall Bay provides them with the control to brew, package and distribute all of their product from one site – emphasising their mission for high quality and simplicity.
