Two days, two bars, one celebration


09 Nov Two days, two bars, one celebration

This weekend sees two of Mount Maunganui‘s iconic bars team up to deliver a local take on a very traditional Bavarian event.

The Hop House and neighbours Vaudeville Bar will jointly host a Hoptober Fest starting at 2pm today and running until Sunday.

Both venues will offer live entertainment from 4pm with the likes of Jinan Dodd, Jevil Desus and the iconic Toner & Franks duo strutting their stuff at this free event.

With gourmet pizza and beer matching, bratwurst and pork belly buns with sauerkraut and other delicious snacks available throughout the day, there will also be roaring open fires in both venues in the evening.

But the real highlight will be the amazing selection of delicious beer on offer.

Speak Easy from San Francisco, as well as San Diego’s Coronado brewery will headline the foreign section with other NZ award-winning brews from the likes of Epic, Behemoth, Garage Project, Townshend, Moa and other local specialities.

There will also be a special, one-off Hoptoberfest German Indian pale ale available.

“It’s great to be working with other businesses in The Mount and hosting an event like this with Vaudeville Bar is very exciting,” says Hop House owner David Stanway.

“We love what Vaudeville do. They have a beautiful bar, are very creative and like us, do things a bit different than the norm so we are excited to be working together,” says David.

Sister business The Pizza Library is also providing delicious hand-crafted pizzas that can be enjoyed in either of the venues.

Two days, two bars, one event – which is sure to be the best party in town this weekend, rain or shine.
