Inaugural “The Great Out West Brew Fest” Feb 22nd 2014

Inaugural “The Great Out West Brew Fest”

West Auckland has long being suffering without much in the way of selection of its liquor choices - particularly when it comes to craft beer. blanc on Lincoln Road is a new retail liquor shop with a little more than your average bottle store, and is focused fine wines and wines to save you a dime, unique spirits and of course Craft Beer. Having just celebrated their first birthday, they are now super excited to unveil The Great Out West Brew Fest.

A festival for serious beer lovers, those looking to find out a bit more about it, or those who just want to have a good time, it promises to be a great day out. Featuring 14 craft breweries from around the country and a few from overseas (including the likes of Epic, Tuatara,, Liberty, 8 Wired and Deep Creek to name a few), there will be something to suit everyone. It will be a great chance to meet the people behind the brew’s, taste their wares while relaxing with some tunes, and ask them their secrets - so you can create your own perfect home brew! Speaking of which, a home brew competition has been organised so that local brewers can submit their own beers to be judged by some of the brewers attending on the day. Some great prizes and of course bragging rights to their mates will be claimed by the winner. Just to make sure the ladies feel included, there will be a range of wines as well.

Running all afternoon from 1pm to 7pm, there will be two bands Range Duo & International Delta Blues Experience providing entertainment, with a range of food on offer to complement the great brews.

Limited early bird tickets are available, either from blanc or on the website http://www.blanc.kiwi.nz/BrewFest.html

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
