About the events

Hāpi 2020 is a unique opportunity for the brewing industry to connect and learn. A selection of the world’s best breweries have been invited to New Zealand to share their hop forward beers and techniques with New Zealand brewers and beer fans alike, all while celebrating the 2020 NZ hop harvest.

There are two components to Hāpi 2020: a public facing Invitational Festival, and the industry focused Symposium.

Hāpi Research Symposium is a full day programme to share the latest thinking, development, techniques, and research efforts around brewing hop forward, expressive beers. The Symposium will be held on April 3rd at The Opera House in Wellington NZ.

Hāpi 2019

This annual event is a gathering of craft beer and hop industry participants from across the globe, for a half day of talks covering the latest research from the hop world, brewing techniques, and experiences from breweries and other industries.  This event creates opportunities to build stronger, direct relationships, share best practices, and hear about the latest in hop research, brewing techniques, and market tastes and trends. The Hāpi Symposium is a great opportunity for domestic and international craft brewers, scientists, hop breeders and growers to engage in collaborative discussions, information sharing, and networking.

The first annual Hāpi Symposium took place in April of 2019 and was a great success.  We had an overwhelming response and the event was well attended by a wide range of craft beer and hop industry participants.  This year the symposium focused on new developments in craft brewing
