After having a successful event showcasing the brewing efforts of Beer Baroness, Tiamana and Mata last year we have decided to host a second event with an even larger roster of brewers.

At Moon, we always like to have good and interesting beers on tap and we're pleased to have an ever-growing number of female brewers to choose from. Every one of them produces great beer, regardless of gender and that's what we like to celebrate great beer. We'll have quite a line-up for you, with all tastes, hoppy to sour, light to dark catered for!

Expanding on last year, we've stretched one day to a whole weekender, from the Thursday to the Sunday. We start off with Annika from Tiamana running us through an intro to tasting off flavours in beer and why they exist ($10, Thurs 6:30pm Limited spaces) ending with a show from Nicole Andrews on Sunday evening (Sun 6pm $10).

The full line-up of events:
Thursday 6:30pm - Sensory Beer Tasting with Tiamana:
Limited spaces.

Annika from Tiamana is running a tasting course with a twist; this is beer that you don't want to drink! Ever wondered why some beer tastes off or like it's gone bad? This tasting picks up on a few problems in beer and with the off flavours isolated, in capsule form, you can now find out what they are and how they occur.

There's only a few spots so Email - to reserve your space, payment on the day which gets you access to the tasting and the beer for experimenting with.

Thursday 7:30pm - Live music and DJ sets from Chocolate Box:
The ladies are kicking off the Female Brewers Showcase with an 'all-killer, no-filler' DJ and live set!
Featuring Vanessa Stacey & Lisa Tomlins

Friday 6pm onwards - Live music and DJs:
Deathray Record's Wahine DJs get you warmed up for a Friday night until the bands start playing. Turtleneck Promotions are featuring an all-female line up (TBA) from 8pm.

Saturday 1:30pm - Meet-the-Brewer: MATA:
To kick off our summer aftermoon opening times we have a meet the brewer session with Tammy and Gloria Vitikingas from Mata in the Bay of Plenty. They have travelled down especially for the event so come along and enjoy a Mata beer or two with the women who brewed it! (We may or may not be pouring a keg of Matawhaka IIPA for you...)

Sunday 6pm - Nicole Andrews:
Newtown musician and member of the female Red Moon Collective (with Jhan Lindsay and others) hosts an evening of live music at Moon. A great chilled out way to round off the weekend.

And throughout the showcase, we will have every tap and hand pull pouring a female brewed beer of course!
