The Big Weekend

It's been a great week of beer already, but it's about to go to the next level as beer lovers from around New Zealand descend upon Wellington to try and attain beervana. Please excuse the brevity of this week's email - with all this week's happenings I've not had the usual amount of time to put it together.

Our final official "HashtagRoadToBeervana" event is today, with five Karl Strauss beers on tap from 5pm. We're not planning any extra events on Friday and Saturday, except to have one of the most bad-ass beer lineups in the country.

On Friday we'll be tapping the first keg of Mikkeller Texas Ranger from the shipment which arrived last Friday, along with some super fresh Sculpin IPA & Liberty C!tra IIPA pluse a few kegs we've been hoarding such as Funk Estate Berliner Weisse, Super Afrodisiac, Almanac Bourbon Sour Porter & Golden Gate Gose.
For people just wanting a refreshing, easy going beer after having their taste buds assaulted at Beervana we'll also have Stone & Wood Pacific Ale on tap. Thanks to Stone & Wood air freighting some over specially for the Beervana crowd.

Complimenting our wonderful lineup will be some wonderful live music, starting tonight!

Musical Trilogy

To keep the beer loving public entertained this weekend we've sorted out three bands, one for each night starting tonight.
Tonight check out Nick Granville Drum Funk Quartet, following on Friday is the Tony Mad Trio’s Texas Boogie, then rounding off the trilogy on Saturday with some Surf Rock Funk from Vincent Vega Trio.
All start at 10pm, and all are free.


The week following Beervana tends to be a quiet one, but that's not stopping us from continuing our New Release Tuesday programme.
When Craig and Catherine Fitzpatrick arrived in Wellington for Beervana they brought with them a car-load of kegs full of Tauranga's best.
Included in this was a new brew, an Oatmeal Stout.
Fitzpatrick's record of brewing classic styles consistently and perfectly means this Stout is probably going to be a doozie.

Fizpatrick's Oatmeal Stout will be hitting the taps on Tuesday at 5pm.
