Don't try to crush these on your forehead, Herman
Quite classy for an Aussie lager, without the Euro lager bitterness but with plenty of creamy dreamy flavour to keep you coming back for more.
A NZ take on a traditional German style. Full boddied wheat beer with a refreshing dose of hops.
Brewed with predominantly Riwaka hops from Nelson, and supported by a couple of American hop stars; Amarillo and Citra, plus a handful of specialty malts from Gladfield Malt on Canterbury plains, NZ.
The 'Speak Easy' XPA. A crisp, clean malt base sets the tone for a combination of American hops that offer a refreshing hit of tropical, citrus and stone fruit aroma to take your breath away.
Aromatic, dry hopped, extra crisp, not overly bitter using 100% Nelson hops.
Pronounced “goes-uh”, the Gose style originated in Goslar, Germany, and is a slightly salted kettle sour brewed with coriander seeds and German noble hops. Between the natural tanginess from the brewing process and the salt, this beer has a refreshing citrus taste and lip-smacking effect that is downright addictive.
La Trappe Quadrupel is the heaviest ale of La Trappe Trappist ales and is eponymous of this ale style. A full, warming and intensive taste. Malty with the sweet tones of date and caramel.
Smacking of citrus this sessionable New Zealand ale is smooth and refreshing with a gratifying burst of hops. The brewer has huffed and puffed to give this Ale a perfect balance of bitterness and hop character on a smooth malt base. It loves tall stories.
"Although there's plenty of malty sweetness, this beer is all about the hops. But unlike an American IPA, which will mainly challenge you with grapefruity and pine-like flavours and aromas, the kiwi hops used in HopWired produce something more like a tropical punchbowl: Passion fruit, limes, oranges and Sauvignon Blanc grapes to name but a few". - 8wired.
An American Black Ale with more hops than a rabbit on a pogo, this Black India Pale Ale has a gorgeous dark body and light brown head - with an explosion of orange, chocolate and pine notes. It's a deliciously smooth malt rider, with enough flavour to keep you clinging on or more.
A blueberrry, cinnamon and vanilla ale brewed for Beervana 2019
A robust smooth Porter borne of pragmatic diplomacy in the Baltic States. Subtle roasted malts and aromas of dark fruit, toffee and berries.
There is no doubt that this label contains imagery some people will possibly find objectionable. Those people might allude to the fact that it may be somewhat suggestive. To those people, I make no apologies: and I’ll tell you why. The only scantily clad woman in this bottle is the delicately sweet malt aroma, riding that savage Hop Bomb all the way through the long, stormy night sky until it hits your tongue... where you can expect the flavour to explode onto your palate.
"It doesn't have to always be about hops. With the surging popularity of overtly hoppy beer, there's an extreme demand for the aromatic little flowers. The history of beer has never seen such overwhelming pressure on the international hop supply. With entire crops unavailable to the smaller brewery, these are the Darkest Days for the hard-core hop heads. But this isn't about hops. This is about a delicious oatmeal stout, darker and more ominous that your hopped up fears. Challenge your palate with this, decidedly, devilish drop. Enjoy full bodied bitter chocolate and espresso notes, with a rich texture, at cellar temperature with your friends and family." - Liberty Brewing
A one off beer brewed for Beervana 2019. Coffee on coffee on coffee. Fresh Pots may be more coffee than beer!
A rich red beer with citrus, berry, and stonefruit characters. Lush and balanced with a moderate bitterness. Rich and malty but dry and hoppy.
