Juicy, malty and leaning on the Nelson Sauvin Hop.
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.
A great hop kick & low ABV gives you guilt free summer drinking. Interestingly the lack of confounding variables (alcohol) lets you notice the psychoactive action of the hops.
This black IPA from Wellington's Baylands brewery is particularly zesty. Massive citrus notes from heavy US hopping dominate with roasted and smoky maltiness in the background.
The clean fruity aroma of this well-balanced pale ale makes it the ideal beverage to enjoy all afternoon. The bright auburn appearance is showcased through a mix of pale malts, and a subtle bitterness comes forward with citrus and spicy undertones.
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.
Medium bodied, with not quite American Stout hoppiness keeps things very tasty, but also approachable for traditional Stout aficionados.
This brown ale is the first spawn from our extensive sour program. It is sour, dry, woody. On the Biohazard tap on request.
Juicy, softly bitter, full of floating yeast and biotransformed hop oils. Really nice.
A hoppy stout, with some bitterness. Good option if you like hops and dark malts.
A tart, refreshing sour ale bursting with mangoes and blueberries. Kettle soured with Lactobacillus plantarum and fermented with a clean American ale yeast.
A lively West Coast IPA jumping with notes of citrus, coconut and passionfruit from the Sabro, Simcoe and Motueka hops. Sabro can ruin a beer, yet again, Bruce has got it just right.
Great example of a style plenty think is wrong.Berries front and centre, soft bitterness, very easy to drink.
True to style American hopped APA. Clean and drinkable, excellent table beer.
This double version of Miami Brut Lager is hopped like a double IPA but brewed with a lager yeast.
This beer offers a combination of punchy hop flavours balanced out by a trio of malts. Late hopping with Nelson Sauvin and Motueka varieties brings fruity, wine-like aromas to sit on top of the lightly toasted malt base. Rich and rounded with a smooth mouthfeel.
Harking back to the good old days of California IPA, this awesome beer has plenty of hops (Cascade, Simcoe, Mosaic) and bitterness.
Mosaic and Centennial hopping with plenty of haze.
Locally produced straight cider. Medium dry.
Super delicious New Zealand IPA brewed for the Smiths NZIPA Challenge.
Half of the just released beer blender series this one is a bright purple, chock full of berry flavour and nicely dry.
Bright purple and deliciously fruity, this is part of a beer blender series but deserves to be drunk all by itself.
