Ho ho ho! Next Q & Ales with NZ Champion Brewer as part of the St Kilda Ale Star session

Given the success of the first Q & Ales (with Garrett Oliver), we are doing it again on Tuesday December 13th in St Kilda during our Xmas Ale Star session. Q & Ales will feature an in-depth conversation with New Zealand's Champion Brewer Soren Eriksen to coincide with the launch of the 8 Wired Brewing Co Makeover Makeover.

Soren is a nomadic Danish brewer who has finally found permanent ground in Marlborough, New Zealand. This year he was named the Champion Brewer in New Zealand (and there are some impressive brewers over there). When drinking his beers, expect unique brews, ingenuity in flavour and new world interpretations of classic styles.

Soren contract brews at Renaissance Brewing in Blenheim, where he also holds down his day job of brewing for Renaissance.

Ale Star Tsar Shandy will be taking us through several 8 Wired's beers before Guy takes over the reins to host Q & Ales and a live videochat (via Skype) with Soren in New Zealand. Q & Ales will be filmed for Taphouse TV.

Oh, and being our Christmas session too there will be hats too!

So, don't dawdle. Tickets are $40 for beer/pizza and you can book here.
