Black Sands is fresh out of West Auckland. Their Motueka hop based Pils is super fresh and clean, in an old world kind of way..but a bit more punchy.
Absolutely delicious double IPA brewed using Citra,Simcoe and Nelson Sauvin. The well balanced malt keeps the bitterness in check, but the Wolverine does have some bite.
Take a really nice oatmeal chocolate stout, add just enough Bhut Jolokia chillies to make it pleasantly warm, then double this amount. (10g/L) Chucking this much chilly into a beer is a dick move. Hope you like/hate it.
Layers of lemon, vanilla, cream and a big zesty finish leaves you wanting more. A kettle sour made with lemons from the neighbour's orchard just down the road from the brewery.
The unit is our version of NZ Hopped I.P.A. With hints of grapefruit, passion-fruit & spicy citrus, backed up with those hop aromas only found in Aotearoa, it seems a lot for one beer, but it ain't called The Unit for nothing!
Crunch. Clean. Crisp. Refreshing. Bite. Blue skies. Cut grass. Good times. Granny Smith would be rapt with this sublimely cider.
Nicely acidic and very drinkable sour from Bayland's in Petone. Mango and guava is there but fairly subtle.
A new world collaboration of German Malt and US aroma hops give a rich, red, malt driven West Coast styled Red IPA.
This beer has a full, tropical palate with fresh fruit aromas and a crisp juiciness that will keep you refreshed from the bar to the house party.
True to style American hopped APA. Clean and drinkable, excellent table beer.
Super juicy, and very hazy from the oat cream. But, still has a nice clean bitterness.
Locally produced straight cider. Medium dry.
Dry and drinkable, no oats so not chewy. Very nice.
A Hazy IPA filled to the brim with real mangoes and liberally hopped with Amarillo, Zythos and Centennial.So much mango you get chunks in the glass. Keeping it real with no fake stuff.
The second batch of this beer using a new hop variety,still has robust bitterness, but is not as ruthless as the first. All round its a great, dry and tasty IPA in a nice alcohol range.
Using a Belgian ale yeast in a hazy brings out new fruity esters to go with the hops fruityness. Its a smooth one that drinks like a 5% Belgian ale.
A rare and delicious mouthful for sour lovers, also intense, boozy and expensive.
Clean and crisp with no filtering to remove the hop haze. Laden with Mosaic, Simcoe, Citra and Zythos hops with a decent malt backbone and an assertive bitterness.
All the Volstead single hop beers seem to be bang on, as is this one. NZ's coolest hop gets to drift up your nostrils and down ya gullet. Delicious.
Lupulin Block because of the Sultana Lupulin hops were so full of hop resins and aromatic oils that the hops formed a solid block. Chinook hops were added to turn this beer into a big and bold West Coast IPA.
This is super summer option, being light, tasty and wet. Brewed with US Idaho7, Citra & Sabro hops.
Soft, juicy and dripping with aromatic Mosaic hops.
