Stock Up for the Long Weekend

Are you prepared for the upcoming long weekend? Beer Without Borders' warehouse sale of beer is usually reserved for the festive season, but they've decided to put on a Queens Birthday weekend special edition so you can be ready for long weekend revels.

Between 3pm and 6pm tomorrow they'll be swinging open the Coolstore doors offering all kinds of awesome beer deals on mixed cases, full cases, cellar specials, vintage deals and brewery glassware. You can even pick up empty one-way keg shells to use as planters or bins.
Handily, there'll be a food truck present, with Eat Street catering for you if you need a late lunch while you shop.

Beer Without Borders are announcing tomorrows deals over on the event page, where you can learn more about what's available.
Borderstop starts at 3pm tomorrow, down at the BwB Warehouse on Abel Smith St.

It's Business Time

Next Tuesday's NRT comes from the latest shipment from Oregon.

In the biggest clash between Britain and America since Parliament spent 3 hours mocking Donald Trump, Gigantic The Business takes the best English malts and throws a heap of bright American hops at them.
Apparently it's so good you'll be saying it's "the business".

We're tapping The Business for the first time at 5pm this Tuesday.

New & Coming Soon

New beers from near and far are gracing our taps and fridges this weekend.

New in the fridge we have Rogue's 4 Hop & 7 Hop IPAs in 355ml bottles, and fresh Pelican Umbrella IPA in 355ml bottles.

Coming very soon on tap we have a couple of new beers out of Christchurch.
Pomeroys & Three Boys got together to brew an IPA tribute to the lesser known (or even vilified) hop varieties of Green Bullet and Super Alpha (now known as Dr. Rudi).
The brewers say "Its aroma is a blend of ripe melon and damp moss, full on hop flavour and bitter finish."
A couple of months ago Modern Times head brewer Matt Walsh popped down to Christchurch and whipped up a collaboration with Beer Baroness. Rye-ot Grrrl is a rich 6.4% IPA with plenty of bite to offset the rye richness. Look out for them coming on tap with our app or website.
