Aaand it's back!

New Zealand's only event of it's kind will have you feeling hot hot hot - hot, as Sweat Shop Brew Kitchen's Hot Sauce Festival returns for it's fourth year.

Packing more punch than ever before, join like-minded chilli heads across an entire weekend.

We're kicking off on Saturday 25th May with a chilli review from one of the worlds most famous heat-seekers Johnny Scoville from Chase The Heat, followed by the NZ Chilli Eating Championship finals where both experienced heat dwellers and wild rookie contestants will encounter the worlds hottest chilli, the Carolina Reaper. White Chapel Jak will be joining us to kick off the afternoon dance floor followed by DJs late into the evening.

On Sunday 26th May, things heat up in the Homemade Hot Sauce Competition followed by Johnny Scoville returning for the Johnny vs World Chilli Challenge.

Over both days, the top hot sauce brands from NZ and beyond unite to showcase their heated madness for you to enjoy here or take home. Confuse your taste buds with the cool but hot feel of fiery cocktails, a specially brewed Chilli Beer and spicy smokehouse food menu.

Can't handle the heat yourself? We promise watching others fight the burn is worth every cent.
