RESEARCH TOUR: Pete undertook an extensive “research tour” recently to see what new flavours and styles there are around the globe. After 8 weeks on the road across Asia and Europe, he discovered some wonderful new brews,  and has come home with some great ideas for our BREWSHED COLLECTION in 2017.  Stay tuned for more details.

It’s been a busy winter for us all.


BREWSHED COLLECTION: Our latest beer from our limited release,  single batch brews is now on shelves.  NEW WORLD LAGER is a beer developed specially for the Southern Hemisphere palate and features all Kiwi and Aussie hops and malts. Clean and crisp, with a well rounded body, look for citrus and tropical fruit flavours and aromas.  

Available in Packaged and Kegs,  until sold out.


JUDGING THE WORLD: Our Chief Brewing Officer, Hamish Reed,  will be a guest judge at next weeks International Beer Cup in Yokohama Japan.  Judging will be held over 2 days and with 45 judges in attendance,  we expect some long debates as to which beers stack up.  Stay tuned for a full recap once he returns.
