And before anyone comments, they are perfectly aware that Marchfest is now in April. It’s just how they roll down that way!
Speaking of down that way, those clever chaps at the Moutere Inn have put together the Top of the South Craft Beer and Brewing Trail resource. It is a map marked with all the breweries and craft-friendly bars in the region as well as their details and websites. It can be downloaded as a PDF if you are travelling off-line. It’s a great resource – every region of New Zealand needs something as good as this.
