Thank you to everyone who came along to last night's The Mainpower Christmas Celebration Night. What a fantastic job Rangiora Promotions does organising these events which benefit the community and local retailers immensely!
We had an amazing setup this year and special thanks must be given to Nigel at Red Lion Workshop for the incredible bar leaners and tables in our outdoor area (they were very heavy!), and also to Oscar from Brew Moon Brewing Company for supplying the great brews and helping serve up a storm in the bar!!! A huge thank you to my team too - there's a massive amount of work that goes into organising these things and the work done with setting up, managing the event, and cleanup afterwards just wouldn't be possible without you all.
For much of the evening we did struggle to cope with the sheer volume of numbers and appreciated everyone's patience while we tried to manage the glassware shortage problem! Never before have we had such a queue to get into the bar and we're so pleased everybody had such an enjoyable time.
Thank you all. Cheers!! Dave.
2 more special releases for our beer fridge. From Duncan's Brewing in Kapiti we have Juniper IPA - brewed with juniper berries, and Tropicana Party - a hazy New England IPA that's been triple dry hopped with Danali and Mosaic hops with the addition of mango.
Just in time for Summer. Petit Luna is a delicate and refreshing lower alcohol beer, perfect for the warm days ahead. Hibiscus flowers give a light but pungent fruity character and a gorgeous pink hue. All balanced with subtle kaffir lime, spicy Belgian yeast, and subtle lactic tartness. Delightful!!
Don't forget, Dave's away growing his mo' this week (https://mobro.co/davidwilmott) and the shop will be closed for Cup Day. Paul will be back on Wednesday though and he's got lots of new brews for you!!
