Southland bar looking for victory
Kelvin Hotel bar manager Brendan Mason will be pouring on the pressure to win the Guinness Pint Masters competition for Southland tonight.
Mr Mason and hotel barman Nick Rhodes took the lower South Island title in Queenstown last month to make the final five.
However, it will take more than pouring a good pint to win in Auckland - the finalists had to enter a Guinness creation.
The pair teamed up with Southland businesses Blue River Dairy, Seriously Good Chocolate, Escape Glass and Back Country Cuisine to create a taste of Southland for the competition.
Hotel chef Charlotte Chittock created a ntsG?Guinnessnte chocolate cake, caramel sauce chocolate mousse, all made with Guinness.
These will be served with sheep milk icecream and freeze-dried boysenberries.
Hotel manager Bryan Townley said the team would go into the final guns blazing.
