Dez Nuts

/ Brown Ale

Renaissance Brewing Company - Marlborough

Producing beer since 2005, Renaissance Brewing are no newbies to the craft beer scene. Award-winning pioneers who produce top end, ultra premium ales that enlighten the palate and thrill the senses. Committed to using local ingredients Renaissance beers nicely showcase New Zealand hops malt in a range of British, American and European styles. 

Based out of Marlborough this year’s special brew for Marchfest is Dez Nuts and they say “Dez Nuts is an English styled brown ale infused with hazelnuts which plays off the maltiness of the beer and tastes reminiscent of Nutella.” Perfect for those of you out there a bit nuts!


Highballin Hoax

/ Braggot

Funk Estate - Marlborough

Founded by three mates in a garage in Welly, Funk Estate has now found a new home with their mates Renaissance. Funk make a range of solid drops, as well as some bigger, bolder and the wackiest of numbers. Seek us out, stay funky.

Funk Estate’s special brew for Marchfest is Highballin Hoax – they say “some might call this beer a hoax especially the cocktail connoisseurs among us, this time round we got together with our friends at Beehave Meadery to create a Mojito Braggot. We added loads of honey, lime and mint to a complex malt base to create what we think is a really banger of a beer, rich complex and delicious!” Bang on!
