The third annual Craft Beer Capital Hopstock festival will soon be upon us, taking place across 18 of Wellington's best beer venues over April 15-18th 2015.

Hopstock is a celebration of Nelson's hop harvest. Each year, we savour the fantastic, fresh-hopped beers created from new season hops sent straight from the vine (or for you zythophiles, bine) to the brewery for immediate addition to the brew.

We've been working behind the scenes to lock down our biggest and most exciting lineup of breweries yet. Hopstock 2015 sees a whopping 25 fresh-hopped beers brewed by 28 breweries (including 3 collaborations).

These will be poured across bars on our Craft Beer Capital 2015 trail.

Hopstock is also an activity! Trail Cards, for you to stamp and complete, will be available from the bars from the 15th of April, in strictly limited numbers. They'll also be available online to print yourself, so you won't miss out on the fun times. The Trail Cards will allow you to gather Hopstock stamps for making any purchase at the listed venues (including food and non-alcoholic beverages). Send in your completed Trail Card to enter our prize draw (prize details coming soon)!
