The New World Beer & Cider Awards bring you great beer and cider from New Zealand and overseas.
More than 630 different beers and ciders from 102 breweries and cideries were entered into the 2019 competition. The entries were judged by an independent panel of experts who blind-tasted and evaluated each entry. All beers and ciders entered into the competition must be packaged in a bottle or can and are required to have a minimum amount of stock for thirsty customers, but they don’t have to be stocked in New World stores to be entered into the competition.
The Top 30 beers and ciders were available in all liquor-selling New World stores nationwide until 23 June 2019, or while stocks last. As many are brewed in small batches by independent breweries, supplies were limited – so our advice is to buy them when you see them!
The 70 Highly Commended have varied availability – some are widely available, some are only available in selected New World stores and some are seasonal releases. Again these are all fantastic brews so if you see them, snap them up!
