A true testament to fire, food (meat) and beer, Miss Moonshines and Moa Brewing Co. bring you their inaugural Meat the Neighbours evening.

Kicking off from 1:30pm on Saturday 7th May at Miss Moonshines in Ponsonby, Moa founder Josh Scott will be putting on a demo with a portable brew kit and offering up his beer knowledge to keen punters. BBQ-mad Pitmasters are invited to bring along their own BBQ meat to be judged at a Pit Boss reunion, while throughout the day six craft beers will on tap for tasting alongside a plethora of vendors at The Street Food Collective serving up all kinds of street food, matched to or incorporating the different Moa beers on offer into their menus.

Following will be the main event, a meaty four-course feast, prepared by Pitmaster extraordinaires Cristian Jalaf and Ryan Clapham of Miss Moonshines, of popper on steroids (stuffed jalapenos), pork three ways, beef short ribs and Orleans donuts. Each course will be accompanied and matched with craft beers, one of which was pit-smoked with pohutukawa and brisket in Miss Moonshines’ BBQ and brewed exclusively by Moa for the evening’s events.

Come empty-bellied and open-minded.
