How well do you really know your country?
We will soon find out! We might not be able to hold our annual BBQ this year but we can liven up lockdown with a fun quiz about all things New Zealand. Geography, history, sport, famous faces and music - we will have them all covered! Enter as a lockdown household or test your knowledge against your housemates for some fun prizes.
Why not add to the occasion (and support some hardworking Kiwi businesses in London) by ordering a case of Yeastie Boys craft beer and/or a bottle or two of delicious "New Press" NZ wine from the private collection of Melanie Brown at Specialist Cellars. Delivered to your door, these liquid refreshments guarantee superior quiz performance!. As an added bonus, Mel and The Yeastie Boys (Stu & Sam) will be joining us to offer some beer & wine tasting education between quiz rounds.

Some background to the New Press wine for you winos...
In early 2019 and working with highly regarded Marlborough Winemaker Ben Glover, Melanie Brown set out to create the first series in the New Press collection, three wines featuring iconic NZ varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Pinot Rosé. Ben’s vineyards in Marlborough are situated on the Opawa River, which, over centuries of flooding and ebbing and flowing and evolving has deposited fertile silt loam from Kaiapoi and surrounds into the vineyard sites. With a north-facing aspect and nestled in the lea of the Wither Hills, the vines are sheltered from the enthusiastic worst of the southerly weather patterns. The proximity of the vines to the high tide mark of Blenheim’s coast and being only 10m above sea level can, in some years, introduce a more umami influence into the wines from Ben’s single-vineyard site.
