The Brothers brewery team are down in Wellington for Beervana at they wanted to warm up for it by taking in some of the Jazz Festival at Moon.
Before The Ambassadors of Swing show later in the evening, Brothers will be bringing their brass standard 'Double Contraband' Imperial IPA to out taps along with a few of their classics.
Head brewer Brandon Nash will be here if you wanted to ask him about his current plans, global brewing experience or just want to say thanks for the beers.
As the Brothers venues up in Auckland are also known for their BBQ food, the Moon kitchen are preparing a slow cooked Brisket pizza in tribute. The flavours will be designed to complement the lavish hoppines of the Double Contraband on tap.
Runs from 4pm and it's free entry until 8pm, when the doors open for the Jazz Festival show.
Thu 19 November 4:00pm-8:00pm
|Double Contraband||8.9%||80 IBU||Double IPA||Back in 2014 we got to know a young brewer at Speakeasy named Brandon Nash. Over a few beers we agreed to do a collaboration ale which became Contraband IPA, first brewed at Brothers Beer in Auckland then at Speakeasy in San Francisco. Now Brandon is our Head Brewer and we decided to bring the old favourite back, only this time around we doubled-down on the hop bill - with a generous dose of Citra, Sabro & Loral - to produce a big delicious Double IPA that is perfectly balanced.|
|Pilsner||5.3%||25 IBU||Pilsner||Crisp, clean, continental-style pilsner using a classic European hop variety.|
|IPA||6%||50 IBU||IPA||Our smooth, English style IPA features a biscuity pale malt base supported by Munich, Vienna and crystal malts, and a punchy combo of US and NZ hops.|
