Supajuice Hazy IPA

Originating from East Coast USA, the New England or Hazy IPA style de-emphasizes hop bitterness and showcases hop flavour and aroma reminiscent of tropical fruit juice.

We’ve brewed our first hazy IPA with a juicy combination of Maris Otter & wheat malts, oats, and a truck load of tropical fruit driven hops from NZ, Australia and USA.

Bach Outta Hell

As we exited the NZ Covid-19 lockdown it felt like escape for us at Bach Brewing, out of some sort of short lived hell.

Brewed on the day after we were ALL let out of level 4 lockdown, our big Hazy double IPA is crammed with fruit driven NZ and American hops cushioned on a hazy juicy malt base. With a well integrated 8% ABV, it’s a beer for sitting down and enjoying.

Juicy AF Hazy Pale Ale

The Haze Craze is upon us and here to stay. Started with Hazy IPA’s, we’re now moving into the easier drinking Hazy Pale Ales. On the nose blend of tropical fruits including passionfruit, tangerine, papaya, lychee, mango and grapefruit. Easier drinking at 5.2% and with a supremely balanced bitterness. It’s juicy as f**k!
