Pilsner (Emersons)

emersons pilsnerA ‘Kiwi Classic’, Pilsner is a showcase for Nelson grown Riwaka hops.

Its overt fruitiness begs comparison with Marlborough’s world-beating Sauvignon Blancs. 

Emerson’s Pilsner oozes citrus and passionfruit aromas and flavours. The beer’s palate shows a hint of early malt sweetness but develops a lengthy dry finish.  

ABV: 4.9%

Coconut Milk Stout (Three Boys)

three boysLast night I had a big black pint placed in front of me. It had notes of tawny port if you held it up to the light and a covering of latte coloured head. The smell off the top of the beer was that of coconut rough, tropical flowers, subtle char and cocoa. Hello, thinks I, I rather like this. And so I drank and those flavours, so evocative, came flooding through.

Voyager IPA (Renaissance Brewing)

renaissance voyagerOriginally brewed as a one off beer for use through a beer engine, Voyager is now being relaunched as a carbonated IPA on tap and in 500ml bottles.

Inspired by the boldly hoppy Ales of old that were exported from Britain to the furthest corners of her vast and glorious empire, Voyager I.P.A. is a rich satisfying Ale with an emphatic hop bite.

Sarau Lager (Moutere Brewing)

sarau lagerGerman settlers arrived in Upper Moutere in 1843 and after a rough start, settled Upper Moutere, then called Sarau, in 1850. Cordt Bennseman started building the Moutere Inn in 1850 as a resting place between Richmond and Motueka - in the heart of the new hop growing area.

Brewed in the Munich Helles style, Sarau Lager offers malty flavours with a refreshing and gentle hop finish.

ABV: 4.2%

Pale Ale (Croucher)

croucher pale aleAppearance - A rich rose-gold hue, with good head.

Golden Ale (Three Boys)

three boysPours clear and golden (tick in the box, it does what it says on the label) with a good enduring head with biggish bubbles in it. The bouquet is fresh and fragrant. Among the grapiness and lemon grass was a toffeish note that intrigues. Also there’s banana passionfruit scents that reminds me of long summers in Nelson as well as hot buttered toast. I’d be quite happy if this is the last thing I ever smell.

Pils (Three Boys)

Three Boys Pilsner is a taste of Europe with a new world twist. Like the pilsners of old, it balances pale malt flavour and saaz hop bitterness.

The Three Boys take it a step further using modern varieties of saaz hops grown in New Zealand, which give it that little bit extra aroma and flavour.

ABV: 5.5%

Craftsman Chocolate Oatmeal Stout (Renaissance Brewing)

renaissance brewing craftsman chocolate oatmeal stoutFor years fans of the Renaissance beers had been asking, “when are you guys going to do a Stout?”  It was eventually decided that the effort Brian was putting into taking these pesky blighters out the back to give them a shoeing could be better used to actually make the aforementioned stout.

So we produced not only a Stout, but a Chocolate Oatmeal Stout, the Craftsman.
