Wellington craft breweries are impressing festivalgoers in the United States beer capital.
Panhead, Tuatara, Garage Project, Parrot Dog and Yeastie Boys gave the US beer capital of Portland a taste of New Zealand this week at the Oregon Brewers Festival.
The breweries are among 15 featured international brewers at the trade festival, which runs until Sunday.
About 85,000 festivalgoers attend the longest- running annual beer festival in the US, where ninety craft beers from America are also on offer.
The brewers were part of the New Zealand Craft Connection event, which helps them develop US trade connections.
Each brewer introduced their company and presented one of their beers with a matched dish of food created by Sheperd Elliott, chef at Wellington restaurant Ti Kouka.
Stu McKinlay of Yeastie Boys, said it was great to be showcasing his beer in Portland.
"We consider [Portland] to be setting the standard for craft beer worldwide," he said.
