New site layout

This year, we’ve moved the marquee to the lower ground, beside the flying fox.  This will avoid any problems with puddles if it rains (but of course, it isn’t going to – we’ve pre-ordered sunshine!)

If you’re used to camping in the lower ground, you will need to think about another spot.  There will be additional space in the orchard area and there are oodles of good spots further up the site.

Craft beer in the café

Aro Noir

Friendly roasted stout

Brewed in honour of our location on ‘the dark side of the street’ here in Aro Valley, it’s rich and roasty, but friendly. A stout for all seasons

Death from Above

Indochine Pale Ale

A fusion of American-style pale ale and South-East Asian flavours of mango, lime, Vietnamese mint and chilli. In harmony, not conflict.

Fugazi

Hoppy Session Ale

Don’t be deceived, sometimes things are not what they seem. The modest strength on the can belies the flavour within. A complex selection of malts and generous dose of Sauvin and Simcoe hops create a light but satisfying beer that punches well above its weight. A true sheep in wolf’s clothing.

Fuzz Box

Fuzzy Pale Ale

Forget clarity, There’s nothing clean cut about this beer. This is Pale Ale amplified and distorted in a giant wall of haze and hop feedback.

Garagista

Finely Tuned IPA

Brewed and double dry-hopped with NZ, Australian and US hop varieties. Great things often start in a garage, after all.

Pils ‘n’ Thrills

US-hopped Pilsner

Our typically-irreverent take on a classic style. A refreshing pilsner given extra kick by some high-citrus US varieties.
