Stoke brewer Dick Tout is taking a punt at this year s Marchfest with a flavour not normally associated with beer. The owner of Lighthouse Brew- ery is brewing a lager infused with mint. You could probably pour it over your roast lamb quite success- fully, he said. Dick s experimentalism will come as no surprise to anyone who has followed his brewing over the years. Last year his Marchfest offering was a peach-flavoured lager. It s different. It s not some- thing I ve had a go at before so it ll be interesting to get people s feed- back on it, he said. Dick s Mint Lager will be one of a record 15 new beers brewed especially for Marchfest. Among the others will be a port- er from the Mussel Inn called Love Mussel, a lager from Totara called Gold Rush and a lawsuit- provoking lager from Town- shend s by the name of Te Rad!er. DB Breweries controversially won the right to trademark the name Radler in 2011. Founders Brewery will be offer- ing Stick that in Your Pipe which brewer Matt Duncan describes as a big and bold 5.5 percent smoked ale. We ve done a smoked ale before but this one has a lot more smoke in it, he said. Sprig & Fern will be unveiling an amber ale known as Oceania Ale made with what head brewer Tracy Banner calls a trifecta of Pacific hops. Made with Pacific Gem, Pacific Jade and Pasifka hops, Oceania Ale is described as a drinkable pale ale with a nice zesty, citrusy aroma. Sticking with a geographic theme, McCashins will be serving a pilsner called Inpacific. It s a crisp pilsner but it s got the smoothness of vanilla and coconut. The lightly roasted coco- nut comes through quite nicely, head brewer Sam Wilson said. Marchfest directors Mic Dover and Eelco Boswijk are also getting in on the act with their own Eel and Comic Ale brewed under their Dead Good Beer label. When you look at the glass, you should see autumn but when you drink it, the aromas and flavours should remind you of the summer that s been, Eelco said. It ll put a spring in your step to see you through winter, Mic added. See 2 Minutes page 6. Marchfest's food vendors will include Nana's Maori bread, Jamaican Jerk Shack, Dutch Touch, Shellz Kitchen, Flavours of Europe, The Mexican and others. The music line-up includes: The Bellbirds featuring Don McGlashan and SJD, Mellow IPOD, The Hobnail Trio, The Immigrants, Mara and the Bushkas and Newtown Rocksteady.
