NOW POURING

Blogs about Malthouse’s now annual Darkest Days festival have always used a quotation as a headline. This one is absolutely no different... except that it is the first quote to appear on this illustrious site from Og Mandino.

It is no secret that I really like using quotations in the headlines for this blog. Highlighting the words of people far more clever and talented than I helps educate readers and saves me precious time. This issue, the quote is from the (late) Artist Formerly Known As Prince. [1]

You might be familiar with one of the Americas largest craft breweries Lagunitas, Spanish for Small Lake, Brewing Co.

Founded in 1993 by Tony Magee in Lagunitas, California, and moved a year later to nearby Petaluma, California, when they quickly outgrew their original location. Since the mid-2000s, Lagunitas has been one of the fastest-growing craft breweries in the United States and is now coming to New Zealand.

Next Tuesday the 6th of June at 7pm both Patrick Mace and Ron Lindenbusch will be at Malthouse for a 'Meet the Brewer Event'. Don't miss this opportunity to meet with two of the integral team members of Lagunitas Brewing Company – Dr Pat (Patrick) and Ron.

8 Wired Brewery has been on the Kiwi craft beer scene so long (since October 2009) that I have almost figured out whether it is spelled 8 Wired or 8Wired.

The term “hero” is bandied around far too often these days. However, Andrew Childs from Behemoth Brewing Company is one of my personal beer heroes. I often tell him so after a few Tasty Beverages.
