A Moment With Te Radar

Te Radar - Brewers Guild NZ Awards Evening MC

A few choice words from Te Radar on beer and hosting...

I have tried in the past to make my own beer. I have discovered that it is most assuredly not my forte.

They are currently producing some of the best beer I have ever had the pleasure of supping, and it is a constant source of delight to see and savour their skills as often as I can.
