SOBA Brewers Table

Once again the Society of Beer Advocates (SOBA) invites you to ‘The Brewer’s Table’ – an opportunity for you to expand your mind about craft beer.

Every hour, on the hour, from midday to 4pm, people involved in the craft beer movement will be on hand to talk about craft beer related topics. Sessions will commence with a short presentation, after which there’ll be an opportunity for you to ask any questions. And you never know; in the past brewers have been known to bring along something special for sampling!

SOBA also invites you to head along to their marquee at any time to find out about more about who they are and what they do, or just to chat with fellow beer lovers. They can even sign you up on the day if you’d like to join them.

    THE GREAT KIWI PUB CRAWL

    Ned Bartlett has a great love for all things ‘pub’, and has a wealth of experience on both sides of the bar. For the past couple of years, he and writing partner Jono Corfe have been tasked with scouring the country, looking for the best pubs around. The result is Penguin Random House’s latest publication, ‘The Great Kiwi Pub Crawl’. Come along and hear Ned talking about what makes a truly great pub and what is involved in publishing a book like his.
