Brought to you by Beer Historian Molly Jones (No Such Thing As A Girl’s Beer) and Beer Jerk (The Bunker, The Fridge & Flagon), XX Fest is a celebration of diversity and inclusivity in the beer industry. On Friday 31st January and Saturday 1st February Auckland’s Fridge & Flagon will play host to beer, music, food and discussion from some of the amazing women who make the New Zealand beer industry tick. 9.3% of the profits from the festival will be donated to The Women’s Fund, representing the gender pay gap which still exists in New Zealand. The Women’s Fund is a community of generous women who work together to create opportunities for women and girls in our city.
The party starts at 5pm Friday with the launch of a brand new exclusive brew from new beer brand The Curator Project where the ultimate trifecta of artists, brewers, and organizers will be brought together to release special edition beers as well as 11 other beers on tap, all brewed at female led breweries and accompanied by an awesome female led food truck (TBA)
