The World might be ending, but at least we can still have noodles!

Yes it's that time again, the time when we turn our modest little kitchen over to the lads from the Ramen Shop to dispense their bowls of delicious noodles from. 

Noodles kick-off from 4pm on Sunday 27 October. As usual, 25% SOBA discounts apply on beers. 

We understand Godzilla, Mothra and Rodan will not be making appearances.

News from the North(end)

Summer is coming. Must mean it's time for a beer-launch again. 

Yes, the Lower-North Island's latest* brewing company Northend will be having their official Wellington launch with the release of their third ever beer at Golding's Free Dive on the this coming Thursday (October 24). And because Summer is (allegedly) just around the corner, their latest release will be appropriately golden and summery: a hoppy wheat ale. 

Now we haven't tried it, but the brewery description makes it sound pretty damn exciting:

"A hoppy golden summer beer that combines the tartness of an American Wheat Ale with the clean hoppy crispness of a New Zealand Pilsner.  Originally designed to clear the seawater out of Head Brewer Kieran Haslett-Moore’s throat after an afternoon out with the crab pot at Waikanae beach."

Sounds good to us. 

There will also be supporting acts present, in the form of North End's Amber Ale (on tap) and E.S.B (on handpump). We'll also be serving up some delicious nibbles from Waikanae's Long Beach Cafe.

The beers go live from 5pm. Hope to see you down here! 

* Although by the time this goes to press they may not be the latest brewing company. There may be another one by then. Or another three. Who keeps track these days?

Senseless Vandalism

LATE BREAKING NEWS: Rockstar new brewery Panhead has a new IPA coming out: THE VANDAL. This is a 7.2% beer, generously hopped with an abundance of Kohatu, Riwaka and Nelson Sauvin hops. Reported to taste of tropical fruit, this monster of an IPA will be set loose Friday the 6th of September. That's right, tomorrow (or today if you're reading this on Friday). 

The Vandal will be pouring from 5 pm at Golding's Free Dive. There should be plenty for everyone, but we're expecting crowds, so this beer may not last until Saturday. 

See you there!
