The only occasion in Hawke's Bay where you can taste beers from near all of the region's local breweries freshly poured from the tap.
Featuring the BAD Apples area, offering a selection of New Zealand’s finest craft ciders.
Local brews complemented by a large selection of outstanding beers from the rest of New Zealand and beyond, as well as special one-off BAD brews.
Set in the stunning gardens of historic Duart House, Havelock North's hidden gem, and accompanied by live music, DJ tunes and delicious kai from Paella-a-go-go, DCBBQ and someone else awesome TBC.

As usual we have set a cap on tickets to minimise queues and ensure plenty of room for everyone, so get in early if you want to be sure of a ticket!
Oh and this year we have an official rain day the following Saturday, but don't worry, we doubt we'll need it.
