It's a tough job... but somebody's got to test it. Our latest collab brew with the fellas and… https://t.co/yHwDRkwODq
Folköl for Folket!
Brewer’s notes: We brewed this version of our Southern Pale Ale to be an easy drinking “folk” beer, which means it has a lighter body and lower alcohol at 3.5% ABV. We think it’s a great beer for new converts to craft beer. We boost the bitterness and aroma with a combination of bold kiwi hops. Waimea provides the smooth bitterness and a hint of pine, while the Nelson Sauvin stands out on the nose with its distinctive cristpness and unique floral tones, all balanced with the subtle taste of citrus from the Motueka. We like to think our Southern Pale Ale washes over your like a cool breeze on a warm summer’s day. Through a few in a chilly bin with some ice and head to the beach! After all, it’s always summer somewhere!
“Chilly bin” is New Zealand slang for a cooler or “kylbox” in Swedish.

Summer Session Ale
Brewer’s notes: We brewed our Southern Pale Ale to be an easy drinking session beer, which means it has a lighter body and lower ABV than your average pale ale. We think it’s a great beer for new converts to craft beer. We boost the bitterness and aroma with a combination of bold kiwi hops. Waimea provides the smooth bitterness and a hint of pine, while the Nelson Sauvin stands out on the nose with its distinctive crispness and unique floral tones, all balanced with the subtle taste of citrus from the Motueka.

New Zealand Pale Ale
Brewer’s notes: We brewed the Shady Jade as a kiwi slant on a bold American-style Pale Ale. The solid malt base and balanced palate are what you come to expect from this classic craft style. The up-front bitterness comes from the early kettle additions of the wonderful Pacific Jade hop, while the Motueka and Wai-iti balance out this brew with notes of stone fruits. It’s probably our favourite go-to BBQ beer.
“Throw another shrimp on there would ya mate…” ahh no wait – that’s Australian – ahhh – you get the idea.

Oatmeal stout with chili
Brewer’s notes: We wanted to brew this oatmeal stout for it’s smoothness and fullness, then we added the chili to spice it up a bit. Single hopped with the versatile Motueka gives this stout a balanced bitterness and “noble” aroma without overpowering the chocolate and coffee notes. For the mild sting we roast chili over wood charcoal on the BBQ which brings out the sweetness and gives a subtle smoked character. The sneaky chili is not meant to club you over the head, but slowly creep up on you, then kick in the afterburners…

Forest Pale Ale
Brewers notes: For this brew we complement our NZ hops stance by stepping into the dank, mossy Swedish forest for a bit of inspiration. The result is Gone Native: a smooth, dry pale ale that has been primary fermented on juniper berries (enbär). The tannins in the juniper give this beer its fresh hazy character and striking bitterness, complemented by the pine notes from generous late additions of Wakatu hops. We reckon the dry finish imparts a hint of gin. If you like it hazy – drink shaken not stirred!
So what is “going native”?
“Used humorously, to go native means to take on some (or all) of the culture traits of the people around you, often said of people who go to foreign countries or far away cities.” Urban Dictionary

India Pale Ale
Brewers Notes: Hokitika Hootch is an IPA inspired by the rugged and wild West Coast of New Zealand. It’s a collab between passionate Kiwi brewers from opposite sides of the globe and showcases the breathtaking Nelson Sauvin hop. It’s all late kettle editions and dry hopping that gives the Hootch its bountiful tropical notes of gooseberries, grape and goodness, rounded off with a small addition of sour malt gives the Hootch a grapefruit tartness that is refreshingly wild!
“Hokitika” is a small town on New Zealand’s forgotten West Coast and “hootch” is an illegal liquor, making this a Wild West bootlegger brew!
