Events Grudge Match: Liberty vs Hawkers

Grudge Match: Liberty vs Hawkers

October 20th 5:00pm to November 11th 11:00pm

In a tour described as: "Part mateship, part collaboration, part rivalry" Melbourne’s Hawkers and Auckland’s Liberty Brewing are taking to the road for a trans-Tasman beer launch with a difference. 

Each brewery has made a beer under the colours of their national team – a gold IPA for the Aussies and a black IPA for the Kiwis – and they’ll be launching them side by side, tap vs tap, at twelve venues in two countries from the end of October. 

To show there’s harmony behind the rivalry (brewers from each brewery travelled to the other to make the beers in true collaborative style, after all), these two beers have been designed to go together in the same glass in a Bledisloe-style black and tan. And here’s where you can find them:

New Zealand venues

  • November 8 – Rogue & Vagabond, Wellington
  • November 9 – The Brewers Co-operative, Auckland
