Sunshine Brewery #nofilter Hazy East Coast

The phrase “#nofilter” is more common with millennials on social media platforms than with bearded, craft beer drinkers. What is common with the latter demographic is the trend towards hazy, unfiltered IPA’s, commonly called East Coast or New England IPA’s. Sunshine Brewery has been brewing for almost 40 years, but it took a long journey to Gisborne by their young buck of a sales manager to convince them their IPA would look better unfiltered. Channel your inner socialite and #nofilter! 6% 4.7 Std Drinks

Brothers Beer Himalayan Rock Salt

Tenzing Norgay is the legendary Sherpa that helped Sir Edmond Hillary traverse the Himalayas, the other thing that the Himalayas are known for is their pink rock salt. Brothers Beer have brewed a one-off seasonal Gose using this salt and in a nod to the mountaineer they have named this slightly tart, 4.5% beer after him. This easy drinking Gose has notes of coriander, peach, with a crisp palate and a clean, slightly briny finish. The perfect beer for consuming before or after mountaineering (just check the weather forecast). 4.5% ABV - 3.8 Standard drinks per litre.

Piha Strawberry Wheat

Most people will be familiar with wheat beer, but strawberry wheat beer?... it sure is novel and somehow works, the summery fruit with its light and smooth 100% wheat malt base, including 100% fresh strawberries used in the mash! The base beer was then lightly hopped with the floral and zesty NZ Wakatu hops. The result is a cloudy blush-pink beer with a medley of fruity aromas balanced by the typical estery wheat beer characters. The perfect session beer with a light to medium body and sub 5% ABV.

Eagle Brewing Fresh Hop Pilsner

Eagle’s Dry Hopped Pilsner won Best Pilsner in NZ at the 2017 Brewers Guild Awards, so when we heard they were doing a fresh hop version this year we knew we had to get our hands on some. This pilsner displays big juicy, grassy hop flavours from the fresh hops yet has a refreshingly crisp and clean finish - there’s no dispute that this is one of the best. 5.2% ABV - 4.1 Standard drinks per litre

Epic Rhonda Red IPA

New release from Epic and the newest edition to their Red Series is Rhonda, a Red IPA. It’s unknown the inspiration behind Rhonda as a name for this beer, but we like to think that maybe whilst hitch-hiking down to Nelson, for the annual hop-harvest, Luke may have been picked up by Rhonda, a woman who drove a red Honda? Anyway, true to Epics form is full of hoppy goodness, very drinkable at 6.5% and will please the crowds. 6.5% ABV - 5.1 Standard drinks per litre

Fortune Favours The Super Naturalist Pale Ale

The Fortune Favours silver bullets (cans) have fast become top sellers at FWD Co and none more so than the Naturalist Unfiltered Pale Ale, so what could be better? A 7% IPA version? Appropriately named the Super Naturalist. This higher-octane version is also unfiltered and loaded with big juicy hop notes and is super smashable… be warned, a couple of these and you may find yourself becoming a naturalist? 7.0% ABV - 5.5 Standard drinks per litre

Epic Beer Blanket

Being the first Stout Epic has produced in four years, you know it’s got to be good. This beer proves that Luke can do dark beer’s just as good as his IPA’s, this toasty brew is the perfect warmer for those upcoming cold winter nights. Brewed with oats for that creamy texture, some rye malt for a hint of spice and a portion of heavy peated malt giving whiskey smoke – this definitely is a warming, satisfying beer blanket of a brew. 6% ABV - 4.7 Standard drinks per litre

Panhead Blacktop Oat Stout

This Panhead brew is a silky, velvety, creamy style that is comparative to a liquid Tiramisu. Pouring a deep black, caramelised Golden Naked Oats are the backbone of this smooth and sophisticated stout. Aromas of chocolate, coffee and vanilla follow through to toasty, roasty notes, and hints of exotic spices. Basically, it’s a cup of hot cocoa for grownups and perfectly suited to the cooler months. 5.5% ABV - 4.3 Standard drinks per litre

Behemoth Dump The Trump American IPA

Back by (un)popular demand, is Behemoth’s Dump the Trump dedicated to dumping Donald Trump. It didn’t work the first time, but there’s no harm in trying again so the ever-popular American IPA is back on the taps. Brewed with copious amounts of US, and a sprinkling of NZ hops as a protest against the US and Trump. With tropical aromas and a big, bitter palate, one thing’s for certain, this beer is definitely better than Trump’s comb over. 7.2% ABV - 5.7 Standard drinks per litre

Birkenhead Brewing Company Pacific Pale Ale

The second beer from Birkenhead’s favourite craft brewery, this zesty pale ale is named after the historic Hinemoa Street that runs between the port and the village. The street takes its name from the Maori legend of Hinemoa and Tutanekai, two lovers separated by the waters of Lake Rotorua. Tutanekai is said to have lived on Mokoia Island and would serenade Hinemoa every night, his soulful music guiding her canoe as she paddled to meet him for a midnight tryst. If this delicious beer had been around then, he could have just wooed her over a pint – the sweet tropical fruits and resinous pine give way to a seductive palate bursting with citrus zest and juicy fresh grapefruit. At only 4.6%, she wouldn’t have been over the legal drink canoeing limit either. 4.6% ABV 3.6 Standard drinks per litre

Behemoth 6 Foot 5 IPA

Brewer Andrew Childs isn’t called the beer Giraffe for no reason, he is a very tall man, 6 foot 5 to be precise. People this tall often find themselves playing basketball, cleaning windows or clearing gutters, not Andrew, he makes beer. So this beer is for the naysayers, it’s big and hoppy, full of US and NZ hops and, you guessed it, it’s 6.5 % ABV. Some say this beer is head and shoulders above the rest, a real slam dunk, others say that Steven Adams drinks this after every basketball game, but it doesn’t really matter who you believe. Once you’ve tried this beer you’ll see the tall tales are in fact true. 6.5% ABV 5.1 Standard drinks per litre
