sbiddle:
Evolbob:I mean I like to support the sponsors, that why I still bought their pricey pizza, but Red Dog don't seem to be willing to come to the party, considering their short-sited view on the beer Kegs.


If you don't understand how the liquor & hospitality industry works it may seem short sighted, but infact it's not.

The majority of bars and many larger restaurants have supply agreements with either DB or Lion.?

Both DB and Lion like to push exclusive?supply agreements which means the venue?will only stock products from the one supplier which is why many bars only carry products from either DB or Lion and not a mix. Some bars don't like exclusive deals but may offer pourage rights (ie tap beer) from one supplier and give them the majority of facings in the fridge but carry a limited range of bottled beers?from other companies.

At the end of the day it all comes down to $$.?Breweries offer significant?amounts of money for loyalty and meeting supply targets and may contribute to things such as fitouts. It's not hard to see why venue do align themselves?with an exclusive supplier when so much money is at stake.

One Reg Dog is a Lion?venue so aren't?going to want to be helping DB out in any way by letting them promote a product. Don't hold anything against ORD for this, they are simply protecting their business. If somebody from Lion came in and saw them giving away DB product it would certainly not go down well!
?


I'm really surprised that someone had to state the obvious. And beside - you don't look a gift horse in the mouth. That said - good on you for supporting the sponser.

Maybe a free keg of beer as another prize for the Wellington meet-up?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

freitasm: Folks... DB has given us two kegs of beer per evening, to help promote their Monteiths Worth Talking Over website.

Unfortunately the venue in Wellington has refused to allow DB to deliver the kegs for us there. We have confirmed two kegs of Monteiths for AKL and CHC events though.

I am looking at alternatives for a pre-pizza drink somewhere else in town. Stay tuned!


MF, I assume you have already tried having them at the Monteiths Brewery??? I would have thought that wouldn't have the same issues next door to Te Papa???. And a good walking/staggering distance to ORD.

Another option may be "Stage" On Dixon St, as it's a venue rather than a regular bar per-se, so may not have the same issues around existing DB/Lion agreements?

Nothing at all, only goodwill towards 60 customers. AKL and CHC had no problem with the arrangement.

Maybe the General Practitioner would be keen, as a DB, and Monteiths branded bar?

No, sorry, it won't happen. AKL and CHC got luck. Won't use the same venue next year.

Is it too late to offer prizes for sponorship?

BiddleCorp would like to offer me as a prize. You could win me to come and work for you for free for a week. I just require internet access, food and beverages (pizza, Pepsi Max and beer are OK) and I guarantee that if there is something in your workplace than can be broken that I'll break it (so I'll accept no claims for damages).
