Beer News and Goss – 2 November 2008

This is a reminder that the Great Christchurch Beer Festival 2008 takes place this Saturday (Election Day) at the most excellent The Twisted Hop in Christchurch (6 Poplar Street) from 11am to 11pm. Admission is free and there will be a BBQ and live music. More importantly, the beer list looks awesome:

Pink Elephant Mammoth
Tuatara IPA
Renaissance Blonde
TTH Skull Buggery
Mussel Inn Bitter Ass
Emersons Brewers Reserve
TTH Twisted Ankle
Galbraiths Mr G’s
Invercargill Boysenbeery
Townshend No9
Croucher Pils
Epic Pale Ale
Brew Moon Dark Side Stout
Lighthouse Dick’s Dark
Wigram Hefe
Green Man Pils
TTH Golding Bitter
Harringtons Rogue Hop
TTH Challenger
Three Boys Golden

Sadly, I won’t be able to attend because I will be judging at the Great New Zealand Sausage Competition. It will take a little explaining to the electoral flunkies about why I want to cast an early vote…

In other news, a new low-carb beer has entered the market with the recent launch of Export 33. It joins Spring Tide and Haagen Blonde in this growing market segment.
