Champion Small International Brewery – Australian International Beer Awards 2019
Longboarder Lager has picked up a big following here at Vino Fino, just like the Paradise Pale Ale. This beer is a European style lager with a crisp, dry bitterness. A super fresh batch and tasting delicious at the moment. Perfect for a day in the sun or on the couch watching your favourite show.
McLeod’s have surely cemented their reputation as one of the very best craft breweries in the country with a seemingly endless stream of top notch beers across all styles coming out of their brewery in Waipu, Northland. They were awarded Champion Small International Brewery at the Australian International Beer Awards 2019, which just happens to be the worlds largest international beer competition. Now that's impressive.
"Our flagship beer. A German Pilsner at heart with a heavy dose of New Zealand hops. Brewed with our house lager yeast and cold-conditioned for six weeks before we release it, the aroma is clean and bright with citrus and melon hoppiness. The taste is smooth with cracker-like maltiness and fine balanced bitterness, making it the perfect beer after a day on your longboard. Slainte mhath."
