Just released for Autumn – Fresh Hop Harvest Ale

A collaboration between Bach Brewing and Shakespeare Brewhouse, we brewed Autumnal Harvest Ale using the relatively new Waimea hops which are the grand-daughter of Pacific Jade.  Fresh picked in Nelson at Totara Hop Farm on 24th March, and shipped overnight for immediate brewing at the Shakespeare Brewhouse.

Brewed using English and German malts, and single hopped with Waimea; pellets in the boil, fresh hops using the Lauter as a hop-back and more pellets for dry-hopping.

Autumnal’s mouth-feel has a fresh grassy character typical of green hop beer and a subtle nose; tangelo and citrus fruit with pine.

Style:  American Amber Ale / 5.4%
