Organic Beer and Wine Festival

Organic Beer and Wine Festival

On May 4th, Students for Environmental Action (SEA) would like to change the way you think about organics by hosting a night full of tasty treats, beers and wines.

For the past four years, Students for Environmental Action (SEA) have been organising the event to promote the availability of organic beers and wines in Dunedin. "The festival is always well attended by both students and the wider Dunedin community and is a positive event for a university student group to be involved in", says Sarah Cleland, the organiser of this year's event.

The Organic festival will be held at Backstage on bath street. Doors open at 8 pm and a door cover of 5 dollars includes free beer samples and refreshments from Taste nature of Dunedin and Chantal foods of Napier. Local and national beers will be available on the night from Founders, Greenman, Emersons and Greenfern breweries. Castle Macadam wines in Mornington is supplying organic wines for the evening.

The Organic Beer and Wine festival is deeply rooted in local Dunedin music featuring Ecophonik, Monica Yeoman and the Nouveau Rich, Deb Morgan and the debut of Sneakysound Underground. The liaison officer of Otago Organics, Andy Barrett is involved as a speaker in the event and has the view that "as New Zealand begins to face up to the challenges posed by the twin threats of climate change and peak oil, organic agriculture will inevitably have an ever-greater role to play as we shift towards truly sustainable ways of producing food."

Come out, taste the difference, enjoy the music and learn
how to get involved in the organic lifestyle in a fun, friendly way!

Organic Beer and Wine festival, Backstage, $5 on the door, doors open 8pm.
