Explore the stirring synergies between craft beer and music at The Auricle!

Six NZ craft breweries. Six renowned sonic artists.
A unique multisensory tasting, where the aromas and textures of fine craft beers will be intensified by high quality musical performances.

Just as drinks are complemented by foods that enhance their flavours, sound waves have a profound effect on the perception of taste.
Craft beer enthusiasts and music lovers are invited to join us in an exceptional experience, where the tasting notes of six special brews will be interpreted in complementary tunes performed live in Christchurch’s sonic art gallery.

Final line-up of breweries and musicians revealed soon!
