The End of the Road

Just a quick update this week. We're nearing the end of the (hashtag) Road to Beervana, so we've got plenty to keep us busy at the bar.

Right now it's our Timeless on Tap vintage beer takeover. On tap right now is: 8 Wired 2013 iStout, Moylans Old Blarney Barley Wine 2012 and Mikkeller Big Worster Chardonnay BA 2013.

You can grab a tasting flight of all four of these beers today only.

Tomorrow from midday we're hosting Tauranga's best brewery on Six of our taps. Fitzpatrick's Imperial Porter, IPA, Fitzy's Special, Pale Ale, Kaffir Lime Wit and American Brown Ale will all be on tap.

Craig Fitzpatrick himself is driving the kegs down as I type, so they're brewery fresh.

There's still a few gems coming on tap soon, including: Gigantic Pipewrench, Almanac IPA, Sculpin IPA, ParrotDog Puffinus Huttoni & High Time IPA, Panhead/Liberty Skidmark and Mike's Strawberry Sour Porter.

A Chilled Out NRT

I'm sure you'll be tired of barrel aged sour smokey imperial everythings after Beervana, so next week's NRT is a nice, simple Czech Pils from our comrades in Chch - Pomeroys.

This Pilsner is made in the more traditional style that most kiwis will not be accustomed to. No superfruity kiwi hops here, just traditional grassy, earthy noble hops on a slightly amber malty base.
Pomeroy's Czech Pilsner goes on tap from 5pm Tuesday.

Music to Attain Beervana To

We've got a double helping of live music in the lounge this week to supplement your Beervana experience.
Friday from 9.30pm we have The Inclinators, featuring blues harp maestro Terry Casey, Chris Armour on guitar, Richard Te One on the drums with Steve Moodie with bass.

Apparently you should "bring a spare singlet because it might get a little hot and sweaty."
Then on Saturday from 9.30pm the Tony Mad Trio will be banging out some Texas Boogie. With pure old-school Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix styles from the lead guitarist of The X-Ray Catz!

Of course both of these acts are free of charge.

A Gigantic Baird

Don't forget our next two tastings are available for booking now.
A new shipment of Baird will be showcased on now. It's be on Wednesday August 26th, we'll be tasting super-fresh regulars like Rising Sun Pale Ale & Suruga Bay IIPA, as well as new seasonals like Fruitful Life Citrus IPA, Rainy Season Belgian-style black IPA & more... Book your spot now at Cultbeerstore or over the bar for $40.

The week following we're showing off some new Gigantic Brewing beers with Gigantic's Brewmaster Ben Love live from Portland via the interwebs.

You'll be able to taste along with the brewer, and ask him all of your burning questions about Gigantic and the Portland beer scene.

Reserve your place now over at or at the bar for $40.

Obligitory PBE Reminder

Don't forget that tickets are on sale now for this year's Pacific Beer Expo. Don't miss out like so many did with Winter Ale Fest and book early! Tickets are on sale now at LilRegie.
