PBE Revealed

With PBE just two sleeps away, there's little point in teasing you with beer announcements this week. Instead, you can have the entire beer list. 
Those who like to plan ahead can check out the entire beer list spreadsheet here
Or just take a gander:

If you're wondering what will be keeping your stomach lined this weekend, wonder no more. Feast your eyes on the Salt & Wood Collective Menu:

BBQ Jack Fruit Taco (Vegan) - $7.50
Crispy Tofu Taco (Vegan) - $7.50
BBQ Pulled Pork Taco - $7.50
All tacos topped with corn, avocado, Baxter’s hot sauce and pickled red onion.

Brisket Sandwich w/ caramelised onions and short rib gravy - $10.00
Pulled Pork Sandwich w/ buttermilk slaw and pickled onion - $10.00
Smoked Mushroom Burger w/ cheddar, tomato, onion, sprouts and ketchup $10.00
Beef Short Rib w/ big bad beef rub - $10.00
***Gluten free bread available***

Ginger Kiss Ice Cream Sandwich - $2.50
Kebob maple donuts (bacon optional) - $5.00
Remember that you get $7.50 worth of food vouchers with your ticket, enough for a taco straight away.
Speaking of tokens, you get four tokens (worth $2.50 each with your ticket. EFTPOS will be available to purchase more tokens, but cash is preferred to keep lines moving swiftly!

As you know, Saturday's session is sold out. But there are still tickets available for the Sunday session, though they are selling faster and faster as the date approaches.

Another thing to note - to help reduce entrance lines we'll be endeavouring to start checking people in half an hour before 2pm each session. So if you want a good seat, it might be good to get in early.

The weather is looking not bad on Sat and fine on Sun, so bring your sunscreen and see you this weekend!

Farewell Mama T

It's the end of an era here at HZ next Thursday.

After seven years of distinguished service, it's time to say farewell to our dear Tasi. Mama T has started her own cleaning business, and is heading off to work for herself full time (if anyone needs a kick-ass cleaner, hit her up!).
Next Thursday is Tasi's final shift at Hashigo, and in classic Tasi style she's going out with a bang.
Tasi has brewed an Imperial IPA with Te Aro Brewing for the occasion: NINTASI IIPA (best beer name ever?) which will be tapped at the end of her shift at 5pm. There'll also be cake, gifts and no doubt a classic Tasi speech, ending with "Cheers bitches!"

Come and join Tasi and the staff from 5pm next Thursday to see her off.

I Viddy a NRT

Next week's NRT is another from New South Wales brewery Nomad, this time a deliciously punny Imperial Stout: Choc-Wort Orange.

Choc-Wort Orange weighs in at 9.5%, and features some interesting ingredients:
"Rich, Black, Choc Orange, stout experience.....Brewed with many layers of caramel, biscuit and chocolate malts, this Imperial is Stout is big black and malty.
A small amount of smoked malt was also part of the grist to give this beer a unique feel. The roasty, chocolate sweetness is balanced out by a generous kettle hop addition that imparts a moderate bitterness.
Orange peel was also added to the boil for an extra layer of citrus goodness, think of chocolate orange cake!"
So shake off those post PBE/long weekend blues with glass of imperial stout - but a small glass. We'll be serving Choc Wort Orange in 200ml TeKus and 300ml fancies from 5pm next Tueday.
