Widow Maker West Coast Double IPA

Over at Bach we’ve been on the hops again… Beware the Widow Maker. Loaded with Maris Otter malt to cushion the in-your-face truckload of hops including; Rakau, Nelson Sauvin, Mosaic and Citra. It will elevate your senses, or if toyed with…teleport you to erehwon.

Velvet Marley Chocolate Cherry Stout

We’ve been on the hops again … brewing up a lip licking dark beer – somewhere between a classic kiwi jelly tip and a cherry ripe. Loaded with dark and delicious coloured malts, and layered with natural cherry, berry fruit and Peruvian cacao, we reckon it’s a dessert in a glass.

Throbbing Grist

We’ve been on the hops again… marvelling at our beautiful living beer. From field grown barley and hops, to grist (milled barley and water) & hops fermented in the brewery, emerging as an effervescent & lively nectar.

Free Bird Hazy IPA

We’ve been on the hops again…pondering the days when original hop varieties grew wild. Thankfully, today’s masterful hop growers nurture and harvest these magical humulus lupulus hop flowers, for us brewers and drinkers.

Free Bird Hazy IPA
Grain Daddy Double IPA

Over at Bach we’ve been pondering the reality that hops don’t shine without the perfect cushion of malts. Doug & Gabi Michael started Gladfield Malt 17 years ago. Doug’s a 5th generation barley grower and you might say he’s a Grain Daddy of malt here in NZ. Grain Daddy double IPA is proudly brewed using locally grown and malted Gladfield malt, and a truckload of NZ and USA hops.

Peach Pucker

We’ve been on the hops again… recollecting the lazy days on our family farm picking and eating tree ripened juicy peaches. Brewed on a Berliner Weiss style sour beer, we’ve thrown in a trailer load of golden queen peaches, and with a hint of white tea. A little bit tart and plenty peachy. Pucker up people.

Peach Pucker
Planet Nectaron NZ Hazy IPA

We’ve been on the hops again…..pondering how Nelson region could almost be another planet, with aromatic humulus lupulus thriving like weeds or triffids – some of the best hops in the world or perhaps universe! Brewed for the 2021 NZIPA challenge at Smith’s craft beer house in Queenstown, a Hazy NZIPA out of this world!

Primal Dream

We’ve been on the hops again … lost in a fantasy of Jurassic times, when it was a real effort to get a case of your favourite beer. Loaded with Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe, and Zythos hops, it’s a West Coast style IPA capable of slaying the meanest thirst.

Primal Dream
Vaxxinator Hazy IPA

We’ve been on the hops again … and we’re double vaXX’d up. We reckon the Covid vaccination is a good choice for all our freedom and wellbeing.

Berried Alive

We’ve been on the berries… reminiscing about the raspberry milkshakes my Dad, Frank loved. We figured we could thread the beautiful juicy raspberry fruit into a refreshing pale ale hopped with Mosaic and Motueka.

Berried Alive
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.

Judder Beer 330ml can

We’ve been on the hops again…laughing about traffic calmers – fondly known as judder bars (speed humps). Judder Beer is brewed to our West Coast IPA recipe with less alcohol, session drinkability and loaded with Rakau, Mosaic and Ella hops.
