Life’s too short to eat or drink anything less than extraordinary. That’s our philosophy here at The Fermentery, Whistling Sisters’ newly-opened buzzing brewery and restaurant – and this year we’re excited to be part of Wellington’s own ExtraOrdinary street festival, CubaDupa. Join us for great beers, seriously good food and plenty of live music. Be sure to try one of our unique and delicious beer cocktails, or sample an unexpected pairing of food and beer. The Fermentery will be buzzing with the sounds of sassy musical sisters – the perfect first or last stop on Wellington’s Ghuznee St Craft beer mile.
We love Parrotdog beer and what better way to show that love than by having them make us a special brew for the weekend. ParrotDog have whipped up an Extraordinary Pale Ale (XPA) with an extra pale malt base for light, clean and easy drinkability, using US and Australian hop varieties (Mosaic and Vic Secret), lending themselves to bright tropical, stone-fruit and berry characters. Best of all, it’s a sessionable, festival-appropriate ABV of 4.4%. ParrotDog will be serving the beer from the ParrotDog bar by the Wellington International Swan Stage to quench your thirst while getting a premium view of the stage.
