NOW POURING

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 New Zealand brewing scene is moving at light speed, if not warp speed.

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.

Once every 12 years the best rugby players from England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland put aside their long-standing differences, pull on the hallowed red jersey and head south to try and beat the All Blacks, hands down the best team in the world. The British and Irish Lions (better known as the LIONS! LIONS! LIONS!) [1] will play ten matches here starting on 3 June 2017.

Hold the phones – Hops in the Hopinator

I have many powers – and they are pretty sweet –

The Craft Beer Capital (CBC) people are wonderful. Every year they organise Hopstock, a Wellington-wide celebration of sticky, green hopped, resinous and, frankly, sensual fresh hopped beers simply to honour my birthday.
