Our craft beer expert, Drew, has put together a selection of six of his favourite brews in a gift box to take the stress out of your gifting ideas. Sure to please all craft beer lovers.
1) Baylands Offshore Bandit Hazy IPA
"At Baylands we’re diggin’ our hazy beers of late and we like to experiment. Looking for inspiration we headed to the beach. This beer uses new trial hop Hort 4337 alongside classic NZ hops including Motueka and Riwaka. Expect loads of grapefruit, pine and tropical fruit character over a light hazy malt base."
2) Rhyme & Reason Happy Pils
"Brewed using the finest German Premium Pilsner malt, balanced with subtle New Zealand Liberty Hops. Happy Pils is citrusy, crisp, and refreshingly dry thanks to a clean fermentation profile. Beer brewed for the hot summer days."
3) Cassel's Nectar Double IPA
"We’ve taken our immensely popular Nectaron® IPA and turned up the volume to create this Double IPA. Way more Nectaron® hops, plus our exclusive-to-Cassels Willamette hops bring you a punch, tropical fruity brew."
4) Garage Project Party & Bullsh*t IPA
"East Coast anthem IPA – a big ol' hop poppa of a beer, packing in intense mango, tropical fruit hit from US big guns, Simcoe and Mosaic. It's just bigger and juicier than it's bitter West Coast counterpart, like sippin' hazy hop nectar from a can. It's all good."
5) Duncan's Peach Ripple Ice Cream Sour
"Part of our dessert style sour beer range. Peach Ripple baby! Bursting with 250gm/L of juicy Golden Queen peaches, a good dose of lactose and a dash of vanilla."
6) Townshend Keystone Milk Stout
"Luscious, creamy, velvety goodness in your chops and chew on it like a pack of jersey caramels."
