Tui Brewery was the place to be on Sunday, with 100 plus shiny big rigs descending on the small town of Mangatainoka for the much-anticipated Tui Truck Stop Show & Shine. 

The Toki Truck Stop Show and Shine is one of our most-loved events at the Brewery. The drivers and owners put so much effort into making their trucks look fantastic, and the displays were really impressive. We had over 300 people come through the gates, including families and truckies from all over the country, and with the awesome weather, loads of people sat and listened to the live music in the garden bar, and enjoyed a cold ale or an ice cream in the sun.

This year we also had some epic prizes donated by our amazing sponsors – we were overwhelmed by the amount of people and businesses that wanted to be part of the event – a massive thank you to all of you!
