Help the Foodbank

BrewDay are pleased to announce that they are partnering with the Palmerston North Foodbank to support those in the community who require food assistance.


BrewDay has always been about supporting the community and this initiative will bring direct benefits to those requiring the food assistance.


To make this happen, all we are asking is that those who have purchased a ticket to BrewDay simply bring an item of food along and place it in the food collection bins at the BrewDay entrance. The Foodbank asks that the list of food below is preferable please:

  • baked beans

  • spaghetti

  • tinned tuna

  • rice

  • pasta

  • tinned tomatoes

  • tinned vegetables/fruit

  • powdered milk

  • sanitary items


BrewDay know that the Palmerston North community will get behind this initiative and donate generously.

We are proud to announce that we will have local band “The Regularz” providing the sounds for us at BrewDay.


Music from The Regularz will get your toes tapping, hips swaying and head nodding... and you are destined to sing along even when you don't quite know the words. 


Join The Regularz for some classic rock, soul, pop, ska and reggae, with a smattering of country too. There are crowd-pleasers all through the set - from kiwi classics to global bangers. Get into it with The Regularz at Brew Day Palmy '22.

AWOP System

How it works

When you arrive at BrewDay you will be issued with an AWOP Wristband, this is your cashless payment system – if you have pre purchased a ticket loaded with currency, there will automatically be $30 on your band, it is already activated and you can start purchasing.

For those that need to load BrewDay currency onto your AWOP band you will need to visit the AWOP kiosk, activate the band and load with money. Please note that AWOP will charge a $3.50 activation fee at this stage.

At BrewDay wristbands will be different colours, depending on what you have purchased. There will be colours for the following:

  • Colour 1: Pre-purchased currency band that is loaded with currency enabling you to purchase any product, including alcohol.

  • Colour 2: Wristband that enables you to purchase any product, including alcohol.

  • Colour 3:  Wristband that denotes you as a person under 18yrs of age, you won’t be able to purchase alcohol – but you can purchase everything else.

When you make a purchase using your wristband - the vendor will show you the balance you have remaining.

You can visit the AWOP kiosk at anytime to load more money onto the wristband


If you have a colour 1 or colour 2 wristband and during the course of the day, you look like you have had enough alcohol, or are misbehaving – we will “Yellow Card” you, this means you won’t be able to purchase alcohol anymore. 

How to get a refund on your wristband


Please note that the refund system was available until 11 June 2022 - it has now expired


Serving Sizes

Servings will be tastes of 75ml and glasses of 280ml for beer and 50ml and 150ml for wine.
