Beer travel is the best way to travel!

Sam & I love traveling in the name of beer - whether it is to visit the newest craft-centric pub in the next town over... or half way around the world in the name of beer!

Tomorrow, we are lucky enough to embark on an amazing adventure - we're heading to New Zealand for Beervana and to explore the vibrant NZ beer scene!

Beervana is a festival put on by the Brewers Guild of New Zealand to promote NZ craft brews. More than 60 breweries will be entering the awards and exhibiting their premium/craft beer in Wellington next week. We're looking forward to trying loads of them! Along with Beervana, we'll get the chance to participate in a Beer vs. Wine dinner, meet a bunch of NZ brewers and check out the beer scene in Wellington.

In addition, we get a chance to brew another batch of Portamarillo - the collaborative beer we brewed with Luke from Epic Brewing of Auckland, NZ. The first batch was brewed at our Rehoboth Beach brewpub, now we get to visit his brewery and take another stab at the recipe. Should be fun!

It won't be all beer, all the time... we're hoping to explore some of the best New Zealand has to offer - breathtaking views, fantastic experiences, fab food, tasty wines and more.

If you want to keep up with our reports from New Zealand, make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter... we're hoping to post some info, thoughts, photos and more from our adventures! Until then - adios and cheers!!!
