2018 Earlybird Tickets Sold Out

Earlybird tickets to Winter Ales Festival 2018 are Sold Out

We are excited and overwhelmed to announce that Earlybird Tickets for the 2018 Winter Ales Festival are now sold out. Over one-third of all available tickets were Earlybird, and it is great to know that there are a bunch of good beer fans out there that are excited for this year’s festival!

We’ve been working with breweries around New Zealand to dial in the beer list, and there are definitely some beers debuting that are not to be missed.

General Admission Tickets Still Available

There are still General Admission tickets available, but these have been selling steadily and we are anticipating a sell out. Grab your tickets while they’re still around, and we’ll see you on Saturday, July 7!
