Beervana ticket sales open today

Visa pre-sales of Beervana open from 9am today (Wed 23 April). In its 13th year, Beervana will be held in Wellington on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 August at Westpac Stadium.

The premier New Zealand celebration of craft beer, more than 200 different beers will be on offer. Up to 12,000 people are expected to attend during two days of tasting, meeting brewers, beer seminars and enjoying food from some of Wellington’s best eateries.

Additionally, there will be judging of a home brewing competition, as well as a media brew competition, where media and brewers collaborate to create their own unique beer based around the theme of spring.

Festival Director, David Cryer, says the last year has seen continued strong growth in the sales and interest in craft beer. “Craft beer sales grew by 33% last year, with more than a dozen new craft brewers starting up in New Zealand in 12 months,” says David Cryer. “Beervana showcases all that’s new in craft beer, from many of the established and emerging breweries in New Zealand.”

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:

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>>
