Hops of Anarchy IPA

We’ve been on the hops again…thinking how modern aroma hops have spearheaded the disorder and anarchy towards traditional bland beer and big corporate beer factories.

Hops of Anarchy IPA
Bad to the Cone NZ IPA

Over at Bach…we’ve been on the hops again, reminiscing a blues rock legend track, Bad to the Bone. Indy craft brewers are pretty rebellious, pushing boundaries, and a little bit bad and slightly crazy in a good way lol.

Bad to the Cone NZ IPA
El Dorado

Over at Bach…we’ve been on the hops again, brewing a beer featuring El Dorado hops from Yakima. The name derives from El Hombre Dorado, a 16th Century Spanish term used to describe a mythical gold adorned tribal chief – the golden man.

El Dorado
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.

Widow Maker West Coast Double IPA
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.

Velvet Marley Chocolate Cherry Stout
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!

Planet Nectaron NZ Hazy IPA
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.

Throbbing Grist
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.

Ocean Pacific 330ml can

The magnificent Pacific Ocean, Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa (the great ocean of Kiwa) embraces our remote shores of Aotearoa, giving us bountiful kai moana and our coastal lifestyle. It’s a big part in who we are and how we live. Te oranga o Aotearoa.

Judder Beer 330ml can
