The 2017 NZ National Amateur Winemakers & Brewers Federation Bi-Annual Competition was held recently and was hosted by the Manukau Winemakers, Brewers & Apiarists Club in Papatoetoe, Auckland. 5 of our members attended with two of these judging in the Competition.
Judging was on the Friday the 13th October followed by a rousing welcome evening meet up that night. Saturday saw a bus trip to the North Shore and an extended visit to the “Beer Spot”. A great little bar with 40 Craft Beers on tap. Choosing was very tricky but with the aid of smallish glasses several of the selection were able to be tested…
Thanks to Al and the Team for another great event.
