Growing a business can be challenging and quite scary, hear from Tracy Banner about the journey that Sprig + Fern Brewing Co has had over the last decade or so, the juggle between On Prem and grocery.

Hear how she overcame obstacles while staying true to the brand and the beer, while enjoying three samples and some great company at the Sprig + Fern in Petone.

Tracy will take us through a tasing of three of the range of 20 taps that pour at the Sprig + Fern Petone whilst also taking us through her incredible 40 years in brewing.

Tracy will talk us through her journey and her love for all things beer before talking more about the Sprig + Fern Brewing Co. and its growth over the last 15 years.

With 15 Sprig + Fern Taverns pouring Sprig + Fern beer & cider on tap and a large selection of products in a range of grocery stores Tracy will guide us through the challenges, highs & lows of the business’s success. There will be an opportunity for  Q&A and networking before & after the tasting.

What will you be tasting ? Tasman Reserve, Nectaron Pale Ale, The G.O.A.T Doppelbock

We welcome you to stay and network while enjoying any of the tasty beers & ciders on tap.

Additional information

Guest Speaker Tracy Banner, Owner & Master Brewer of Sprig + Fern Brewing Co.

Tracy has spent, as of September 2023, four decades in the brewing industry. Safe to say she knows a thing or two about a good brew.

Her career began in England, with brewing giants Greenalls and Bass, prior to a move abroad to New Zealand in 1994, where she secured a position with Lion in Auckland.

Tracy then went on to play a pivotal role in the craft beer revolution that has since swept the country – firstly in her role as Head Brewer for Mac’s in the mid to late 90’s, and later as Brewery Manager and Head Brewer with Speight’s – making her the first female in history to run the iconic, Dunedin-based brewery.
