"IT'S NOT A GLAMOROUS TRENDY JOB. IT'S BREWING."
Go for Launch
On May 5 and 8, Resolute Brewing's first brew, the Zaragoza Stout, was launched to the country. The events were a great success and I thank everyone who made it so.
The first event, held at Pomeroy's on Saturday afternoon marked Cinco de Mayo, and the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Puebla. Like that day, Zaragoza held centre stage. A large contingent of the Christchurch brewing scene were in attendance along with long-time supporters and many others. The first pint poured at 4PM and the tap was busy all night.
The following Tuesday it was the North Island's turn with the Zaragoza appearing at Hashigo Zake's New Release Tuesday. While a bit quieter that the previous release, Wellington's "Beer Geek Church" was in session and it was a pleasure to meet the beer geekery in attendance. It was a great surprise to discover the Zaragoza was on both keg and handpump format allowing comparisons to be made. The verdict seemed to be split on the night!
Again, thanks to all who attended, and thanks to Ava and Dominic for hosting these great events.
