Its on again this year, I went last year and had a great time and managed to win both cups.  I noticed Richard Emerson has his name on one of them... was this the competition that launched his career? (probably not)  It's pretty informal and set up outside in a paddock up a quiet valley in Waitati. All welcome details below;

I missed it last year but i'll be going this year. I know the hosts and they are good people. Should be a great day out tasting some great beers.

last year was really fun.  it rained a bit but nothing gumboots couldn't fix.  it would be great to get a bigger turnout by brewers and have a smorgasboard of beverages to sample :o)  if you want to spend all night talking to like minded people about beer, you will have a really good time!
