Dunedin: New Zealandís Second-Best Wellington

On 14 September, OUSA will be bringing the inaugural Dunedin Craft Beer Festival to Forsyth Barr Stadium.

The beer brands involved are still being finalised; however, they are likely to include such South Island companies as Emersonís, Macís and Moa.

Many different food vendors will also be on hand to sell seafood, meats, cheeses and wild food. Up to 20 food stalls are expected, with a Masterchef-type demonstration among them.

To fuel participation and engagement, OUSA will be running a home brew competition throughout the day. The entrance fee will be $50 and the winner can expect to brew the official beer for next yearís festival.

Furthermore, the stadiumís car park will play host to an entertainment tent, which will broadcast to screens inside the stadium. Bands include Sola Rosa and a Bavarian-style oompah band, lederhosen included. The entertainment tent will also hold a discussion area and guest speakers, who are yet to be confirmed.

There are plans for a special VIP area containing 10 private spaces at a cost of $1,125 each, because corporates love beer.

Tickets will be on sale in ďabout a month,Ē and will cost $20 for students or $25 for the public.
