The eating of food & the drinking of drink at Webstock 15

Your nourishment and sustenance while at Webstock’s main event on Thursday and Friday is important to us. We want the offerings to be auspiciously nutritious and ambitiously delicious.

Much of the food available will be locally and sustainably sourced and there’ll be a wide range of organic, plant based, vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free and nut free options.

Amongst other things, we’ll have…


Peoples Coffee, Webstock’s official purveyors of the wakey-wakey juice we call coffee, will be back again, both days, all day, serving up damn fine cups of joe from their espresso station downstairs. Or join them upstairs for something a little more chilled out at their Cold Brew Bar.

Their head trainer Robbie will also be on site to show you how to brew Chemex or Aeropress, and talk coffee geekery with you.


We’ll have a selection of Karma Colas which are organic, fairtrade and delicious, along with organic cold pressed juices, which not only tickle your tastebuds, but are tremendously good for you. Antioxidants and what not apparently. Both the cola and the juices be available throughout the event.

Plus there will water stations aplenty, situated around the venue to help keep hydration at optimal levels.


To this day, the record for the fastest pouring of a keg of Garage Project belongs to the attendees of Webstock. In 2013, the tap on a keg of API 1.0 was turned on, poured continuously and wasn’t turned off until the keg was bone dry.

Garage Project are back with their glorious third iteration of the Webstock API (‘reverse IPA’)brewed with a trifecta of tasty Kiwi hops – Wai-iti, Waimea and Rakau – then canned to capture their floral fruit, citrus and resin lines of code.

Garage Project beer o’clock will take place at afternoon tea time, both days. Beers will also be available at Beats & Brews on Thursday, and at the Webstock After Party.


Back by popular demand, we’ll be serving specially-made ice cream, and non-dairy frozen tasty treats.

From the Wooden Spoon Boutique Freezery, made of organic milk and cream, and free of nasty pre-made mixes, stabilisers or preservatives, we have ice cream pops in the following bespoke flavours:

  • Blackberry Chip – Blackberry ice cream with dark chocolate chips*
  • Webstock Grasshopper – Fresh peppermint ice cream with a dark chocolate swirl*
  • Aztec Chocolate – Dark chocolate ice cream with a hint of spice*
  • Strawberry Shortcake – Sweet cream ice cream with a strawberry/pastry swirl

* gluten free & nut free

We’ve also got Little Island, New Zealand’s first coconut-based ice cream. It’s vegan, dairy free, gluten free, nut free and soy free. It’s also delicious and will be available throughout the two days in vanilla bean and chocolate flavours.


And, on Thursday, after the last talk of the day, and before Startup Alley, there’ll be Beats & Brews and thanks to the team at La Boca Loca, a tempting schmear of authentic Mexican delicacies.
La Boca Loca uses fresh, responsibly produced, sustainable cuisine, and organic produce whenever possible. They’ll be serving chilangas, gluten-free deep fried Mexican pies, in meat and vegetarian varieties, for $5 each, between 5 and 7pm.


We also have chocolate from the Wellington Chocolate Company. It’s Dominican Republic, strong & dark (70%) with earthy tones, hints of marmalade, infused with a twist of Webstock. It’s organic, gluten free, dairy free, vegan, low salt, yeast free, fair trade & made in NZ. Infact, it’s so good for you that it would be wrong not to eat it.

Colour me excited!
