Continued from page 1. “We have been working so hard to make an impact in this industry and are up against some incredible breweries. “It feels pretty good to get this kind of recognition,” co-founder Evarn Flaunty said. “It can be quite intimidating being in the same market as so many large companies with so much backing and experience,” co-founder Warren Drahota

added. “We really appreciate the feedback this has provided and it tells us we are on the right road to hopefully seeing our dreams of someday being an influencer in the industry come true. “The better we do, the more we can share our passion for good beer with the community.” Warren said following the wins the group planned to

expand their market and find bigger premises. “We’re still the underdogs of brewers at the moment. “We’re still trying to get our beer out there. “Our Brooklyn brewery is really just a pilot brewery. “We’re continuing to expand by using different breweries. The end goal is to get our own premises,” he said. He said the group was appre-

ciative of the different bars in Wellington stocking their beers and looked forward to where their win might take them. “We’ve got 80 accounts around Wellington. We’re in most of the craft beer bars but there’s a couple we haven’t been in. We appreciate all them. “Salty Pigeon is our local in Brooklyn. All of us used to work in Newtown so the Newtown bars are our locals too,” he said.

Street artist creates interactive artwork for Ronald McDonald House Renowned street artist, D’Side, will be creating an interactive piece of art to donate to Ronald McDonald House in Newtown. The work would be showcased at the 2017 New Zealand Art Show this weekend. Over the course of the show, attendees would be invited to add their mark to Dside’s original artwork, bringing the piece to life. This is the first time art show attendees were given the opportunity to actively contribute to an artist’s artwork at the show. After the show, the artwork would then be gifted to Ronald McDonald House and installed in the children’s playground to add further colour and activity to both the artwork and the play area. “The work I produce on the streets is about giving to and collaborating with the public and their environment,” D’Side said. “This project is a direct approach to the collaborative aspect by inviting the public colour it in.”

Families staying in Ronald McDonald House would also be able to add their own mark to the artwork and when all the surfaces have been coloured in, staff would be able to erase the colourings, creating a fresh canvas and

perpetuating the collaboration. Wayne Howett, CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities NZ, was excited by this project as it offered something fun for families to do while on their medical

journeys with their loved ones. “This proposed interactive art piece is perfect for our families as it gives them the chance to have some fun together doing something a little bit different,” Wayne said.
