The Sunchaser Blueberry Cider 4.7% Cider Freshly crushed Pacific Rose , Fuji and Royal Gala Apples combine with juicy Blueberries. Crisp flavour with a medium finish.
The Wellingtonian NZIPA 6% NZIPA Designed to be light and aromatic with a minimal malt base packed with NZ hops. Wai'iti (low alpha hop - more hop and less bitterness). NZ grown Chinook hops (Punchy flavoursome hop).
The Adventurer - Green Bullet Pilsner 5% Pilsner For those seeking a refreshing pilsner, something more than mainstream but without getting too carried away. Perfect for a hot day on the deck. The Green Bullet hop has long been associated with one of the big boys iconic beers, this has meant it has been, mostly overlooked by craft brewers. Fortune Favours is hijacking the Green Bullet and giving you a fresh look at this hop and the greatness it holds.
The Naturalist - Unfiltered Pale Ale 5.3% Pale Ale The Naturalist perfectly balances and lends itself to multiple pints. Expect citrus flavours from generous hopping which gives orange marmalade, sherbet and a little white pepper spiciness to boot!
MMXIX Imperial Vanilla Bourbon Porter 9% Porter Bourbon Vanilla Imperial Porter. Four words and all of them DELICIOUS. This year's Fortune Favours' Anniversary beer is big, dark, oaky and vanilla. This batch is released only a little each year so we get some good age as time goes by. Cheers to Aidan Jones who collaborated on this beer with us after his version won champion ale at SOBA's National Home Brew Competition.
The Drifter West Coast IPA 6.9% IPA Combining a brand new NZ hop, Hop #4337, and Comet from the US to produce a big, juicy, resinous West Coast IPA. Big grapefruit and pine aromas are backed up by juicy grapefruit and the classic resinous pine flavours synonymous with this style of beer and finishing with a thirst quenching bitterness. Despite the crystal clear appearance this beer has not been filtered and therefore showcases the full amount of hoppy goodness expected from a good WCIPA.
Squid Ink Lager 5% Lager A dark lager that's clean and sessionable with subtle chocolate and roast notes. We brewed this beer in collaboration with the Wellington Tattoo Convention and Craigy Lee from Union Tattoo. It isn't just a clever name we did use some squid ink in there too ;-) Come and get some ink!
The Barbarian Brut IPA 6.5% IPA Expect intense hop flavour and aroma with little maltiness. This Brut IPA is a lesson in Nelson Sauvin; the NZ Hop that has taken the craft beer world by storm. It's a barbaric hop smack in the face!
The Unruly Tourist Hazy IPA 6% Hazy IPA The Unruly Tourist looks, smells and tastes nothing like who it was named for, NZ's infamous unruly tourist family. We pushed our mash tun and our patience to the limits to squeeze out as much body and haze as possible to produce this silky smooth IPA. El Dorado and Lotus hops produce enticing aromas of tropical fruits, citrus and maybe even a hint of vanilla. Sweet and fruity flavours are the driving force of this beer delivered upon a soft cushiony mouth feel. Most importantly it's Hazy!
