Brewtown Becoming More Bountiful

Just when you thought Brewtown in Upper Hutt has got almost everything it possibly could have, along comes the Gillies Group with even further advancements.

The two most recent additions are an outdoor Farmers Market that started very modestly and has sprung up in produce stall numbers and public attendances; and an out-and-out cafe with a bicycling theme.

Just announced is a two million dollar canopy covering of the Farmers Market to make it an all-weather venue every Sunday as well as increasing its area size so that up to 100 stalls can be positioned within it.

It will be the only covered Farmers Market in NZ and is destined to attract hordes of people living in other parts of the region.

The semi enclosed area can also be used for other events such as concerts which is fantastic and gives Brewtown twin permanent "marquees" in respect to the one that was constructed a couple of years ago and was utilised for the very successful New Year's Eve gig last December 31.

Attended Beervana at Sky Stadium today and despite being a Friday morning/afternoon, a very big crowd converged around the concourse of this super stadium.
Brewtown was well represented by Te Aro, Boneface and Panhead who are all leaders among craft beer producers in NZ. Only my personal favourite Kereru from the wider Brewtown precinct was missing but hopefully they will be back again next year.

Tracy Watkins is the proud owner of Murphy.

"She loves chasing rabbits but while she’s never actually caught one it's good exercise for working off her other favourite thing, treats.
She also loves swimming in the creek on our lifestyle block and likes most things about country life (except cows which can be a bit intimidating). She also loves a lie in and is always the last one out of bed."
Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on yourpet@dompost.co.nz with a recent photo. Please remember to say which suburb you live in.

while all nz is struggling with power costs the power companies are ripping us off. Genesis Energy plans to increase its electricity prices for residential customers in January despite posting a 600% increase in its annual profit and signalling a further increase in its operating profit ahead.

while all nz is struggling with power costs the power companies are ripping us off. Genesis Energy plans to increase its electricity prices for residential customers in January despite posting a 600% increase in its annual profit and signalling a further increase in its operating profit ahead.
Chief executive Marc England said it hadn’t yet decided how much prices would go up, as it would consider that strategically and make a call on that later this year.
Genesis posted a bumper $222 million profit for the year to the end of June, which was six times higher than its $32m profit the year prior and almost four times its $46m profit in 2020.

Fellow state-controlled ’gentailer’ Mercury Energy reported earlier this week that it had more than tripled its annual profit to $469m, with the largest of the gentailers, Meridian Energy, due to report its annual result next week.
