New Zealand Beer Festival Returns in 2010

There’s Something in the Beer!

Liquorland New Zealand Beer Festival Returns to Auckland and Wellington in 2010

Auckland, Dec 2009 – We mow our hedges with a lawnmower, have just sent our first rocket to space, and we make MacGuyver look like a school boy when it comes to getting out of a tight spot of bother with a piece of no. 8 wire. What is it that fuels our creativity and spirit that simply finds a way through against all odds? Is there something in the water?

Craft New Zealand brewers embody the spirit of our nation, turning the world’s most pure ingredients into our greatest competitive advantage. The result of their craft fuels creativity across the country. It’s not the water. There’s something in the beer!

When a brewer stands in their community and offers the fruits of their labour, foodies, musicians, and the sun-gods unite to create an occasion we would never want to leave.

It is but a few who put New Zealand on the map with grace, dignity and that reknowned kiwi modesty. The Liquorland New Zealand Beer Festival is an invitation for the masses to do just this… In a market that has seen overall volume decline, these entreprenuers who hone their craft day in and day out with passion and grace have bucked the trend, seeing exponential growth.

What is our public saying? When the chips are down, we want to spend our money wisely, spending that little bit more on treats is worthwhile. The craft beer inustry in New Zealand is that treat to accompany times of relaxation, socialising and escapism.

Gordon Campbell: On The New Government’s Policies Of Yesteryear

Winston Peters is routinely described as the kingmaker who decides whether the centre right or the centre-left has a turn at running this country. He also plays a less heralded, but equally important role as the scapegoat who can be blamed for killing taxes that his senior partners never much wanted in the first place. Neither Ardern nor Robertson for example, really wanted a capital gains tax, for fear of Labour copping the “tax and spend“ label they ended up being saddled with anyway. Usefully though, they could tell the party faithful it was wicked old Winston who killed the CGT. More

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
