The 5% Project

At Shining Peak we’re strong believers that every business should have a social mission at its core. Our mission is for our beer to make the world a better place.

Every month 5% of our beer revenues from our venues, are donated to a different local Taranaki organisation. Not profits…… revenues, that’s approximately 30 to 50% of our venue’s profit – we give away to local organisations each and every month. No terms and conditions, no small print – we just put the money straight into the back pockets of important local organisations and charities here in Taranaki.

Drink Beer, Do Good. 

Taranaki Singer Songwriters

Taranaki Singer Songwriters are at the heart of the region's flourishing original music scene. It all started around 19 years ago with the much loved New Plymouth Singer Songwriters established by Anand Rose and Dave Ritchie-Smith and supported by a wide range of musicians over the years.

Taranaki Singer Songwriters work hard to provide a range of events and activities that help songwriters develop their musical and entertainment skills and promote their original music to local and online audiences world-wide.

Everyone who goes to a Taranaki Singer Songwriters gig knows the magic of these professionally produced shows featuring impressive locals thanks to the brilliance of André from Manella Productions and Chris from Swamp Shack Studios along with other sponsors.

2024 is a real year of growth for Taranaki Singer Songwriters.  They have recently formed a Trust and become a registered charity as they lay the foundations for an even more exciting contribution to the local and national music scene in the years ahead.

They are putting on new kinds of events in new locations including Singer Songwriter nights in Hāwera, Ōpunake and Stratford;  the recent Uniquely Ngāmotu Sounds Showcase series partnering with NPDC and the Sound Bites series partnering with Centre City.  Plans are already underway to celebrate the twentieth anniversary in 2025.
