Announcing XX Fest - Diversity Beer Festival

Announcing XX Fest

What: XX Fest is a Beer Festival celebrating Women and Diversity in the NZ Beer Industry
Where: The Fridge & Flagon – 2 Shaddock St, Eden Terrace, Auckland, 1010

When: Friday 31st Jan from 5pm – Saturday 1st Feb from 12pm

Who: Molly Jones and Beer Jerk

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)

When Evening Shadows Fall is one of four works by Goldie included in a sale of Important and Rare Art at the International Art Centre in Parnell on November 28.

Mark Stocker: History Spurned - The Arrival Of Abel Tasman In New Zealand

On the face of it, Everhardus Koster's exceptional genre painting The Arrival of Abel Tasman in New Zealand should have immense appeal. It cannot find a buyer, however, not because of any aesthetic defects, but because of its subject matter and the fate of the Māori it depicts. More
