Boneface Big Unit NZIPA

Big Unit was the only IPA in the top five for Beervana’s 2018 People’s Choice rankings, which is a pretty big achievement but certainly well earned in our eyes. A double IPA sitting at 8.6%, it’s certainly a dangerous number as it doesn’t taste it’s ABV at all. Lots of juicy tropical and stone fruit flavours balance out a crisp malt profile, she certainly is a big unit. 8.6% 6.8 Std Drinks

Cassels Sons Sauvalanche Double IPA

Wow, what an IPA we have here. As one of our beer panel put it “this is one of the best IPA’s I’ve had in a long time”. An extremely flavoursome ale showcasing the Nelson Sauvin hops that burst out of the glass with juicy gooseberry, lime and passionfruit flavours backed by freshly cut grass aromas. Nelson Sauvin to a tee – this is pretty much New Zealand in a keg! 8.2% ABV - 6.5 Standard Drinks per litre

Epic NZ Pilsner

NZ grown Riwaka hops are so popular and in demand that NZ Hops don’t even export them anymore, as they can’t grow enough to keep up with local demand. This year Epic used their whole years allocation on one batch of beer and you’re about to taste it! Aromas of cut grass and passionfruit come through on the flavour with a zesty citrus zing and a fresh lingering bitterness. 5% 3.9 Std Drinks

Behemoth Hopped Up on Pilsner

Great name this, in fact one of the better pun-driven Craft Beer names we’ve ever come across. Perhaps the narcotic analogy is apt, since crisp Craft Pilsner styles of beer act as something of a ‘gateway drug’ for getting NZ beer drinkers off boring green bottle beers and on to the craft side. Hopped up on Pils is a hoppy Pilsner as the name suggests, balanced and crisp with a citric sting of Cascade and Motueka hops to keep things crafty. It’s Behemoth’s first foray into bottom-fermented, lager-style beer but judging by its early success, it won’t be their last. Try it with grilled fish or Thai Green Curry for a real taste sensation. 5.0% ABV 3.9 Standard drinks per litre

Emersons Bookkeeper Imperial Bookbinder

Bookbinder has been a staple in Emerson’s line up for years, a session-able interpretation of an English Ale, and this year they have stepped it up a level with their imperial version, Bookkeeper. Increased malt and a huge amount of hops brings this beer rich, caramel malty flavour with a big hit of juicy hop flavour with a cleansing light bitterness. First tried and loved at Beervana 2018, we couldn’t wait to get our hands on this number so you can try it too. 6.6% ABV - 5.2 Standard Drinks per litre

An American IPA based on Modern Times 'City of the Sun' (San Diego), City of the Wind uses Citra, Motueka in the Whirlpool and a special Eureka Hop Oil as the 'dry hop'.

Heyday Chainbreaker Brut XPA

Heyday Chainbreaker Brut XPA 5.5% 4.3 Std Drinks $13.99 Brut beers are certainly on trend, with brewers pushing the boundaries using an amylase enzyme to break the remaining polysaccharides or complex sugar chains. This leaves the beer bone dry like a Brut Champagne. The malt is super lean in this beer and is dry hopped with Huell Mellon and Denali. It has a low bitterness to balance the extreme dryness and lovely tropical rock melon and pineapple aromas.

McLeods Lochaber West Coast IPA

Named after the notorious fighting axe of bygone Scotland, Lochaber is McLeod’s take on the popular West Coast IPA style and sure doesn’t disappoint. Super limited edition, it pours bright golden with a fluffy white head. Enticing citrus with dank, pine-laced hop aroma upfront leading to a big, hop punch and resinous palate with assertive bitterness. Expect a long, sticky hoppy finish with a lean yet malty body. 5.9 Std Drinks. 7.5%

Funk Estate Space Age Brut IPA

Sawmill Juicebox ECIPA

This unfiltered IPA showcases the pungent trio of Citra / Simcoe / Ekuanot hops in two separate dry hop additions. A stripped back malt base consisting only of ale malt with some oats for a soft mouthfeel provides the perfect base for these hops to sing with juicy aromas of passionfruit, mango, and orange. The lightly estery English ale yeast provides complimentary stone fruit esters which pair with the fruit cocktail of hops and finishes medium bodied but with a reasonably assertive bitterness for balance. 7% 5.5 Std Drinks

Duncans Yum Yum Yuzu Lager

Not so long ago, George and his wife had a wonderful time travelling around the Land of the Rising Sun. They drank beautifully executed clean, fresh, dry lagers and aromatic yuzu liqueurs and it was inevitable that inspiration would strike. The yuzu is an ugly, tart Japanese citrus which has a unique flavour somewhere between a grapefruit and a lemon. Yum Yum is a light-bodied, well rounded lager and the citrus addition means it pairs beautifully with food. Or a hot bath. 4.7% 3.7 Std Drinks
