What's the drinking age in New Zealand?

The drinking age in New Zealand is 18, the same as the UK. You'll also be happy to know that you can go on drinking throughout the night. While we're on the subject of drinking in NZ, unless you go to an Irish or UK style bar, beer is served in 'handles' rather than pints, which are a bit smaller at 440ml. New Zealand also has an enormous range of its own beers so you won’t have any problem in that camp!! Some you may of heard of are Speights, Monteiths, Lion Red, Export Gold, Tui, Macs Gold, NZ Lager (!), Steinlager. So many to choose from!!!!
