On the day we celebrate being New Zealanders, we thought we would also celebrate the best beers from around New Zealand by having a head-to-head battle.

The Beer Spec-tap-ular will pit six of the best beers from the North Island against six from the South Island, duking it out style for style, with a winner emerging based on your votes throughout the day.

Not only do you get to drink delicious New Zealand beverages, but you can win awesome prizes. By writing your ratings for each beer you try you go in the draw to win a 'Tasting Masterclass' for you and seven friends. That is a guided tasting from Nigel (Croucher Brewing) of four craft beers, this includes the beer as well as food - think of it as your own personal Beer Club.

For each of the following beer styles there will be an entry from the North and one from the South:
1. Lager
2. Pale Ale
3. India Pale Ale
4. Dark Beer
5. Experimental beer
6. Cider

With live entertainment throughout the day, a relaxing location looking over to the sea, plus excellent food and drinks - the 2014 Beer Spec-tap-ular at BREW is the place to be on Waitangi Day.

This isn't one of those highly-strung beer festivals, there is no ticket cost, no dorky festival glass; just good beer, good tunes, good food, and good people.

We would love to see you at BREW on Waitangi Day - are you coming? And who else are you bringing?
