Announcing a Halloween Special to be held at Southern Cross on October 31st. More details will be posted on early next week, but we wanted to let you know about something very special that is also taking place on the night.

Alongside the beers, we will also be holding a PIE vs CAKE BAKE OFF! We are laying down the challenge to find Wellington’s best baker as judged by an esteemed panel of culinary experts we have assembled.

Bake your best Carrot Cake, Pecan Pie or something for the open ‘wild card’ category (pie, cake, slice, you decide!) and go into the running to win prizes, fame, glory and the title of Garage Project Beer Baker Extraordinaire 2012!

The entries will be judged by:

Jacob Brown - Owner and Chef at The Larder 

Beth Brash - Editor at Eat & Greet

Jeremy Taylor - Food Blogger at The Omnivore

The Pies and Cakes will be judged on appearance, flavour and most importantly, how well they pair with either the Pecan Pie or Carrot Cake Beer.

There will be a winner, and they will receive a prize pack including $50 voucher to the Southern Cross, and exclusive bottles of Ziggy’s Carrot Cake, Pecan Pie, Double Day of the Dead Bourbon Barrel Edition and one other secret beer yet to be announced…

To enter - please email jos@garageproject.co.nz to receive further instructions.

Good luck, and may the best Beer Baker win!
