Can I say that, or has IPONZ pooed all over another one?

Anyway, its been a while, and some Auckland SOBA types are probably sick of me talking about it, but it's on.

Hopscotch Beer Company will be having a soft opening next week, maybe, (if the Port works) and my refrigeration plant gets installed as planned.

Hopscotch will focus on providing beer for the thirsty Auckland drinker, too long jealous of Christchurch and Wellingtons tap beer for takeaway options.

I will have 12 taps, four of which will be constantly changing around, regulars will be from West Coast, Epic, Croucher, Mikes and Townsend.

I have no big brewery up me bum, no big birds or giant pussies own anything, so if it's good, I can sell it.

Longer term I will supply grain and hops for inner city brewers, and rent out party kegs and dispense units (I will bust my secret supply of Amarillo out).

Anyway as soon as I have cold fridge I will post it, going as fast as I can make tradesmen make.

Good luck with this fella, Auckland's been long overdue for this sort of thing.  :o)

Good work Hugh, keen to get hold of some Townshend and others - where's Hopscotch based?

The secret to having us all roll through your door would be to tell us where the door is!

Cheers.  Hopscotch is at 2/2 Shaddock St, Eden Terrace.

Its the street that Ruru St (with South Pacific Timber on it) turns into. Its a bit of a niggle to drive into, so I am suggesting people walk down 15 meters from Mt Eden Road. The walkway is opposite the New City Church, just down from The PowerStation.  Looks like the pourer bank will be late next week now. Still, gives me time to get more beer cold.

This sounds great! Well done Hugh... I look forward to checking it

Or stroll down from Galbraiths....

Hmm, where in Auckland can we buy growlers?
