Farmer’s Beers battle at this year’s Fieldays

A North Island versus South Island battle will be waged at Fieldays this year in the bar, but it’s not the brawl you’d expect. As we are the Official Beer Supplier of Fieldays, we thought it would be fun to invite two farmers to our Hamilton brewery to help out with brewing their own versions of a lager, and then make the beers available to try at the agricultural event.
