Craftwork "Angel" 6.8% Pale Ale An Orval clone essentially. But with a twist, in that this is more like a young Orval, and thus the brett is expressed as fruitiness. The beer has a stong malt back-bone, and is dry-hopped (Noble hops) before packaging.
Hallertau x Craftwork "Red Saison" 6.9% Saison A collaboration with Oamaru's Belgian style experts Craftwork. Stainless and amphora ferment finished for 12 months in a chardonnay barrel. All the funk!
Hallertau x Wilderness "Rosetta" 6.8% Flanders Red 2015 National Homebrew Champion Beer from Wilderness Brewery brewed by Hallertau.
8 Wired "Brett Brux Brut" 7.5% Brett IPA This IPA was not only brewed with a ludicrous amount of hops but also fermented with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis. The little critter that many brewers love to love turns a relatively normal beer into something vastly different, complex and rewarding. Super dry, hoppy, funky and more than just a little bit fancy.
8 Wired "Rendition" 7.5% Belgian Blonde It's a rendition of an age-old monastery beer, but we do it the 8 Wired way. Brewed and dry-hopped with NZ grown Styrian Golding hops, fermented with a Belgian yeast and refermented with brettanomyces.
8 Wired "Wild Feijoa 2018" 6% Fruited Sour 2018 Vintage. Sour ale brewed with organic feijoas and aged in wine barrels
McLeods "Cape Brett Saison" 6.3% Red Saison *This is not an IPA* it is a red Saison base beer that has been dosed up with McLeod's house culture of souring bacteria and wild yeast. It has soft tartness, sweet malt and lingering tart finish.
Kereru "Bretted Apricot Saison" 6% Saison 3 month old Apricot Saison re fermented with Brett and an additon of 10kg of fruit.
Peckham's MR BROWN 6.5% Wild Cider A Brown’s Apple Single Variety. It’s been wild fermented by being inoculated with a barrel of 2018 Pathfinder which has strong Brett characters and is ageing in ex Pathfinder barrels. It’s got plenty of nice Brett/wild character and still has a little residual sweetness.
Parrotdog "L.B Brett Saison" 6.5% Saison Saison primary fermented in French oak barrels with a special farmhouse ale yeast before being secondary fermented with two different Brett strains. Funk, fruit and spice with a dry finish.
Northend "Eucharist" 6% Blackberry Wild Ale Traditionally Belgian farmhouse brewers used fermentation to preserve what they produced on the farm. Today we honour that tradition by preserving the deep fruity tart flavours of blackberries by aging them with our spontaneously fermented wild ale. The fruit is grown locally at Stanmore Farm in Te Horo before being aged for 8 months with our beer in oak barrels. We think it’s the perfect way to start Christmas morning
