Join us in July!
Brothers Beer doesn't let winter stop us from celebrating beer and all things good. Check out what we have going on this month below:
Wednesday the 4th of July: "Let's Drink America Great Again"
Yes its American Independence Day and we have decided to celebrate with a selection of the very best American-style beers brewed right here in NZ. We will Dump The Trump and raise glasses filled with Citra, Amarillo and Mosaic hopped goodness. From the West Coast to New England to Mexico we will build a wall of empty beer glasses. We'll be serving traditional NY-style hot dogs and there will be heaps of giveaways.
Wednesday the 4th of July: Brothers Beer Quiz night at Orakei
Another quiz night lined with with Taylor McGregor. Book early as this sells out. You can book at firstname.lastname@example.org
Friday the 6th of July: Lagunitas Tap Takeover at Orakei
We copped a bit of grief from the Eastern Bays locals, telling us to bring some more events out to Orakei. Well as you know we listen, and here is a tasty selection of fresh beer from one of California's most iconic breweries - Lagunitas. From Little Sumpin Sumpin Ale, a personal favourite, to the legendary Maximus IPA. And of course there will be heaps of merch to giveaway and our buddies from Low Tide spinning some choice tunes so we can dance the night away.
Friday the 13th of July: Brothers Beer Can Launch at all Sites
Orakei State of Mind East Coast IPA and Bronson Double IPA
We finally canned it! Literally speaking. On Friday the 13th you will be able to crack open our Orakei State of Mind ECIPA and our Bronson IIPA. Both City work and our Orakei sites have off-license so you can take some of these delicious 500ml cans home with you.
Tuesday the 17th of July: Turntable Tuesday with Real Groovy records at CWD
This monthly event is a great reason to dust off your beloved records and head down to Brothers Beer (CWD). The staff from Real Groovy will be playing some of their beloved tunes. Bring along your records to get played in the night!
Wednesday the 18th of July: Brothers Beer Quiz Night at Mt Eden
Quiz night with Taylor again (but with fresh questions). Prizes up for grabs!

Tuatara are one of New Zealand's classic craft brewers and we're stoked to be pairing up with them to bring you 5 awesome new beers, including some fresh hop brews and some experiments from The Third Eye.
On the 5th May we'll be serving up:
· Vastafarian Fresh Hop IPA
· Sour Relations Kettle Sour
· Attack of the Cones (Wild Fresh Hop)
· Little Prince Albert ESB
· Foxhole Pale Ale
We've also got Carl Vasta, Tuatara's head brewer dropping by from 4:30 to meet and greet and answer your questions about one of New Zealand's OG craft breweries.
On Friday 9th June we welcome Lagunitas to New Zealand.
They're a classic California brewery with a great reputation and we'll have a few taps pouring all day (or while stocks last).
We're going to have 3 kegs on tap to celebrate the launch.
Lagunitas IPA - A well-rounded, highly drinkable IPA. A bit of Caramel Malt barley provides the richness that mellows out the twang of the hops. - 6.2%
Lagunitas A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' - Way smooth and silky with a nice wheatly-esque-ishness. A truly unique style featuring a strong hop finish on a silky body. A hoppy pale wheat ale that is great for IPA fans but so smooth that the hefeweizen fans dig it too. - 7.5%
Lagunitas Pils - Our only Lager, brewed with loads of imported Saaz hops and a bottom-fermenting yeast strain that leaves it Light and Crisp and Easy to Slam, yet full of real flavor and all the things you yearn for. 6%
We'll have a few giveaways on the day too so come down to City Works Depot and try your luck!
