Sprig + Fern Sees a Sell Out at NZ Brewers Fest

Ryan Green, Tracy Banner and Daniel Tipping of Sprig and Fern Brewing Co, sat in front of their bar at NZ Brewers Fest in Upper Hutt

Sprig + Fern Brewing Co. were delighted to see a sell-out of their range of award-winning beer, cider and seltzers at NZ Brewers Fest on Saturday.

Despite the day starting off with wet and windy conditions, Festival-goers turned up in force to the event held at Brewtown Upper Hutt. As the clouds broke and the day warmed, an affection grew for the Sprig + Fern lineup – particularly the Festival-favourite Grown Up Lemonade, which saw unprecedented demand and was completely sold out by mid-afternoon.

Following soon after was Hidden Gem Hazy, the Brewery’s newest limited release beer, of which a small volume was reserved for NZ Brewers Fest. The hazy pale ale contains the NZH-104 trial hop from NZ Hops’ Bract Brewing Programme and was met with many favourable reviews at the Festival.

The remaining products, Nectaron® Pale Ale and Mango + Lime Cider sold out around 5:30pm, just shy of the Festival’s closing time of 7pm.

Sprig + Fern Brewing Co. are now beginning preparations for the next two Festivals they’ll be attending; Dunedin Craft Beer & Food Festival at Forsyth Barr Stadium, and Beers at the Basin at Wellington’s Basin Reserve, both held in November.
